Welcome To RAID Robotics!
We have officially started the 6 week build season of FRC's FIRST Power Up! Over the preseason, the team met a number of times to prepare the new members for the 2018 season; teaching them new skills that they will be able to use during the build season. All pictures from last season have now been posted on the teams Flickr page. Also, check our Blog frequently to catch up on the recent happenings with the team.
To the right is our promotional video, where we will explain to you who we are as a team and also a little bit about how we did in the 2016 FIRST Stronghold Challenge.
If you are interested in joining, helping, or funding the team, please visit the Contact page to get in touch with our leaders and captains.

Raider Artificial Intelligence Division (R.A.I.D.) is one of roughly 52,000 FRC teams participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”
Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship.
