The Raider Robotix team is made of much more than a large group of kids who spend some time together putting together hunks of metal to ship off for competitions. We’re a team of dedicated students who spend long hours working together to build an award-winning robot every year. Each year, we are given only six weeks to design, build and program a robot to compete. Projects vary from robot soccer to hanging inﬂatable tubes on a 10-foot rack. Out of over 2,000 teams from all over the world, we made it to the semiﬁnals in St. Louis and placed third last year. Our team is looking for fresh minds to keep our team fun and strong.
