Saturday, January 3rd marked the beginning of the 2015 FIRST Robotics Competition season. Around the world, FRC teams gathered to watch the unveiling of this year’s new challenge, RECYCLE RUSH:
To go along with the new season, we’ve also launched a new fundraising campaign on Indiegogo! Indiegogo is a crowdsourcing website that allows communities to donate funds to help organizations to achieve their goals. Depending on the amount donated, donors will receive different perks and rewards for their generosity. All funds raised via the campaign will go directly towards the expenses incurred as we build our new robot, compete with it throughout the season, and perform STEM outreach activities.
We would very much appreciate it if you could share the link to our campaign with your friends, families, and followers:
We look forward to sharing what we come up with this season with you!
C’mon out to our Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraiser Breakfast on Sunday, January 18th, from 8 to 10AM!
Check out our Event Flyer, then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to order your tickets.

On Thursday, October 24th, the mayor of North Brunswick, Francis “Mac” Womack, held a 50/50 raffle to benefit Raider Robotix as part of a charity fundraising event. In the end, $450 was donated to our team. These funds will be used to purchase a new set of eight robot batteries to be used during the upcoming 2014 season.
Raider Robotix is extremely grateful and would like to extend a sincere thank you to Mayor Womack and the North Brunswick Board of Education for their continued support and sponsorship of our team.
