Our Major Sponsors
Team 75, the RoboRaiders, is Hillsborough High School's FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team from New Jersey. Comprised of a diverse group of students and mentors, Team 75 works to take part in the annual FRC competition. Team 75 is the oldest FRC team in New Jersey, and since its inception in 1996, has won a variety of awards, including several regional championships and the prestigious Chairman's Award. During the off-season, Team 75 participates in a variety of community service efforts, including demonstrations, food drives, car washes, bake sales and more to help benefit the local community. Among our more intense programs are Technology Innovation Week (TIW), Women In Science and Engineering (WISE), and our annual FIRST Lego League Regional. Here is our Credo, a list of policies defining how Team 75 is run.
Team 75 is extremely committed to the mission of FIRST and goes to great lengths to spread awareness of science and technology within the community. Team 75 is dedicated to developing a sustainable, year-round FIRST team that brings together a diverse body of students, parents, and mentors for a fun and inspirational learning experience in engineering and teamwork. We believe we are fulfilling the mission FIRST set before us; to inspire and create the next generation of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) enthusiasts, engineers, and world leaders.
With the end of Week 2 of build season, Team 75 has been hard at work to stay on schedule. The Electrical subteam has been training on Autodesk Inventor. They have also been working on the electrical board on the 2012 kit bot to reformat it for this year. The board should be completed soon. Mechanical has been practicing on the field they built in the warehouse. Strategy has been finalizing tryouts for the human player. Tryouts will be conducted soon. The Animation subteam has been working on creating a storyboard and animation for the competition hosted by Team 116. FIRST and Autodesk are not hosting the Autodesk Animation Award this year, so Team 116 has decided to host their own. Team 75 has also been organizing Boxes From Home (BFH). Formerly known as Operation Shoebox, members bring in supplies such as non-perishable food, toiletries, batteries, and other donations that are wrapped in boxes and shipped to Troops overseas
