We Create Engaging Experiences

Our Story

The Hitchhikers is a high school FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team located in Apex, North Carolina. Though we are affiliated with Athens Drive High School in Raleigh, we are a community-based team. We have students from all over Wake County, representing multiple different schools including Apex, Green Hope, Middle Creek, Enloe, Southeast Raleigh Magnet, and several homeschools.

 

Founded in 2011, The Hitchhikers created its theme off of Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Students are strongly encouraged to read at least the first book in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. Our marketing, branding, and team references will make sense to a student who has read the books, and they will be able to reply knowledgeably when other people who know the books make references to the series.

 

We are also a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, meaning we are tax exempt.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a platform to introduce and nurture STEM, team work, and leadership skills to youth in our community. We want to create a community where a STEM education is affordable and accessible to everyone. Our core values are Impacting, Training, Implementing, and Leading.
