With computer-aided design (CAD), our team can create a working prototype of our robot using Fusion 360 before we even touch metal.
After the robot has been throughly designed, the design is handed over to the engineering team to turn the design into reality.
Finally, the robot is handed over to the programming team who bring it to life with programs for the robot to follow during competitions.

Mission & Vision
Inspiring Young Children to Become Interested in Robotics
As a student-led and student-based team, we are very thankful for the students who express interest in robotics. That being said, we believe that we can push to inspire even more of the younger generation to become the next future leaders of our science and technology worlds.
First Tech Challenge
What is First Tech Challenge All About?
FIRST Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and code robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by Android technology, and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming.
What Are Some of Our Achievements?
Been a Team Since 2014
We joined the First Tech Challenge back in 2014 and have competed in competitions ever since. Through out these years we have had many different team members, mentors, and recently a new coach.
Southern Region Winning Alliance
In the 2019-2020 Skystone FTC robotics season, our team was part of the winning alliance during the Sothern Region Jersey Shore Qualifier at Toms River NJ.
Made It To States During Relic Recovery
During the 2017-2018 Relic Recovery FTC robotics season, our team was one of the winning team from the previous qualifier and made it to the New Jersey state championship.
Made It To States During Velocity Vortex
During the 2016-2017 Relic Recovery FTC robotics season, our team was one of the winning team from the previous qualifier and made it to the New Jersey state championship.
Partnership With Google
During our 2018-2019 Rover Ruckus year, we obtained a sponsorship with Google. Our team sees this as a big achievement and is something that we are still proud of today.
A S.T.E.A.M/S.T.E.M night event that was an after school event that younger students could attend to learn about robotics. Although this event was unfortunately canceled due to Covid-19 we hope to try it again sometime soon!
Current Projects in Development
As “do-ers” we believe in innovation and the push to turn ideas into reality. Currently here are some projects that we are working on or have worked on in the past.
Freight Frenzy Mecanum Chassis
As the base and core of the robot, the chassis is currently something that we have in development to help innovate and inspire ourselves for the upcoming season.
Generic Intake System
We are currently making a generic intake system so that we can adapt it to work with any FTC game materials in the future.
Previous Season Component Redesign
We decided over the off-season to task ourselves with redesigning some of our old components to show us how far we came as a team. Click the more projects button to find out more!
