FIRST Robotics Competition Team 5985

Create Opportunity; Transform the Community!


FRC Team 5985 is an independent, community team based in the city of Wollongong, NSW. The team is open to all students from any school.

The team first came together in 2015 for the 2016 game FIRST  Stronghold, with 17 students and 7 mentors gathering for a rookie year. By 2022, the team has grown to 35 students from 17 High 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 each year. These programs also allow the team to mentor dozens of FLL teams across the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and beyond.
