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 deadline quickly approaching, the RoboRaiders have stepped up to the plate and have begun working on the more serious parts of the building of the robot during Week 4. The Strategy subteam has been conducting the backup driver and human player tests. They have also completed the written portion of the tests and will be moving on to the physical portion soon. Programming has been working on different aspects of the robot code, from the drive code to certain mechanism codes. The Electrical subteam has designed the electrical board and is practicing and preparing to wire the robot. Public Relations has been publicizing about the TIW Science Fair and has been working on the monthly newsletter. Animation has been working on finishing all of the models for the upcoming Animation Competition.
