How You Can Help

FRC Team 5420 Velocity is a young and growing team so they need lots of different kinds of help.  Currently, the team is looking for more team members for the 2018-19 competition season.  Please use the Contact Us form to let us know you are interested in joining this award-winning team.

We are also recruiting more mentors.  Our team needs help in a variety of areas – technical mentors with engineering skills, computer, and programming experts to teach our students programming, business mentors to teach students about business plans and finances, marketing experts to help students learn to market and promote their team, grant writers to help the team obtain more financing.


Like all community-based robotics teams, South Jersey Robotics teams like Velocity rely on funds from business partners as well as friends and family members.  As you might imagine, a robotics team has a pretty large budget each season so we always need financial help.  If you would like to support our students financially, please use the Contact Us form to let us know and someone will get in touch with you to advise on next steps.

Robot Run

Every year, South Jersey Robotics has a fun event – a Robot Run.  This is a sanctioned 5K run and fun run plus family walk because our teams aren’t just our kids – our families all come together for our robotics adventures.  We also have robot demonstrations that day so you can see the students and the robots they build.  We always need the help of volunteers and the more runners and walkers, the better!

The Robot Run is held in the middle of Oct the Saturday after Columbus Day.  For 2018, that’s October 13th.  We run in beautiful New Street Park, 410 East New Street; Glassboro 08028.
