About Us

The Beginning...

Crowbotics is the FIRST Robotics Team at DeKalb High School, the first team in all of DeKalb County. FIRST Team 5934 was founded in 2015 by two students that wanted to make this STEM experience a reality for their community. These students collaborated with teachers, parents, administration and the Dept of Engineering at Northern Illinois University to create our team. Students have combined the crow, the high school mascot, with robotics to form the team name, Crowbotics. Currently our team has benefitted from mentors including the Winnovation Team 1625, PWNAGE Team 2451, Gear It Forward 2338, and two NIU mentors.


Crowbotics has grown up a little, and we now have our own workshop located at Huntley Middle School! We love getting the DeKalb community excited about robots, so when we aren't in the shop, we are exploring ways to promote STEM in our community.
