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. 26 students from freshman to seniors 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, and the NIU Robotics Team.


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 our workshop, we love showing off our very first competition robot "The Barbarian" or building Lego robots with the elementary schoolers! We are excited to excited to see our "coopertition" friends at the RockRiver Competition at the end of July.
