WHO IS TEAM 5985?
The team first came together in 2015 for the 2016 game FIRST Stronghold, with 17 students and 7 mentors gathering for a rookie year. In 2017, the team reached 25 students from 11 schools and 10 mentors.
5985 is passionate about spreading the message of FIRST. Our signature after-school and school-holiday robotics programs reach hundreds of students a year. These programs also allow the team to mentor dozens of FLL teams across the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and beyond.
5985 is a young team, but is reaching high, particularly inspired by the example of team 3132, Thunder Down Under.
