About

Charger Robotics was founded on November 20th, 2000 as FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®) Team #537, from Hamilton High School in Sussex, Wisconsin.

Originally named "Domo A.R.I.G.A.T.O.", Team #537 changed its name to "Charger Robotics" on October 23rd, 2003 to better align its branding to other Sussex Hamilton organizations.

 

Over the years, Charger Robotics has expanded to include FIRST® Lego® League (FLL®) teams, FIRST® Tech Challenge (FTC®) teams, and has impacted over 450 students and 80 mentors who have been involved in the program.

These teams participate in educational and exciting robotics programs and design challenges provided by FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).
