We are FIRST Robotics Competition Team 2059, The Hitchhikers, with members from Cary, Raleigh, Apex and across Wake County, North Carolina. Since 2010, we have striven to build a stronger future through student leadership, impactful community outreach, and a successful robotics program.
The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a unique varsity sport of the mind designed to help high-school-aged young people discover how interesting and rewarding the life of engineers and researchers can be.
The annual center point of our season is designing, prototyping, and building a functional robot. From basketballs to minibots, the challenges we face each year enable our team to bond and learn together.
