We Are the Space RAIDers

Learn more about our success on our Team History page!

Team 2537, Space RAIDers, is a FIRST Robotics Team at Atholton High School in Columbia, Maryland.

Currently, Team 2537 is making face shields and face masks for healthcare workers.  We are making several varieties of face shield; the most sophisticated version is 3D-printed, comfortable, and re-usable (with disposable clear-plastic shields).  If you want to join in, please click on the shields or masks links above for details.

Last Year’s Robot

After a team vote, our 2020 robot was named the Mecanum Falcon. The name combines mecanum wheels, which our robot used, and Millennium Falcon which is a reference to Star Wars. Most of the pictures above came from the Bethesda competition as the season was cut short due to COVID-19.
