FRC Team 7763
Who Are We?
Carrborobotics is a FIRST® Robotics Competition team. Our team was established in 2019 and is based in Carrboro, North Carolina. It represents the students of Carrboro High School. Currently, our team is student-led by three captains, with the guidance of our lead mentor, Dr. Morais.
We strive to inspire students to pursue STEM careers and promote innovation and impact through robotics competitions. We prioritize creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking to design robots that excel in competitions. We value diversity and its importance in building a successful team.
Beyond bettering the students in our team, Carrborobotics also aims to elevate all schools in our community. We engage with Mary Scroggs Elementary School and show young students our robot at their annual STEAM night. We are also committed to founding a robotics team at Culbreth Middle School to encourage an interest in robotics before high school.
Despite a prolonged COVID hiatus, Carrborobotics members led the way through a successful competition season whilst navigating the growing pains of rebuilding a team from scratch. Presented with our first and most challenging competition at the Wake County District event, new members were exposed to the thrill of “comp”, and a sense of accomplishment reignited in the team. Finding our legs at Wake, we went on to place first in the UNC Pembroke event, scoring not only respect amongst our fellow FNC peers and a ticket to States but determination within our members. The team could not have done it without the support of our own members and parents, but also neighboring teams, especially team 4795 EastBots, our neighboring school East Chapel Hill High School. Carrborobotics is now more eager than ever to continue to put forth our best and put our name back up on the leaderboard.
