Joliet Cyborgs was founded in 2011 when the University of Illinois Extension approached the administration at Joliet Township High School and asked if we would be interested in forming a robotics team to compete at a national level in the Midwest Regional. Our answer of course was a definitive yes. With dedicated staff and students, we began our journey to create a District robotics team. Season 2016, is our fifth year with FIRST Robotics. We have faced many challenges over the five years, but have drastically improved as well, such as gaining our own personal work space, acquiring new mentors, and increasing our resources. By increasing the attention spent on rules and safety, we have boosted our productivity greatly. We inspire to continue this upward movement in our team.
