Seton Hall Prep Robotics


Pirates 5992 is a FIRST Robotics Team based in West Orange, NJ, from Seton Hall Preparatory School. Students and mentors alike learn to apply values defined by FIRST which we believe are key to our success, sustainability, and allow us to be a respectable team. We also strive to apply these values not only to robotics but also to everyday life.

Team Mission Statement

Seton Hall Preparatory School’s motto is Hazard Zet Forward, which translates to “despite hazards, move forward.” Team 5992 Pirates embodies this motto in the construction of a robot, which competes in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Although setbacks may occur in designing, prototyping, fabricating, and operating the robot, the team strives to solve and overcome these problems by building the best possible robot. The example of the team promotes the ideals of FIRST and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) within the school and in the community beyond. 


In the fall before the season begins, veteran students and mentors hold weekly workshops to train students and introduce them to tools, safety and design concepts such as chassis, control systems, CAD design, electronics, and programming. During the season much of the learning and training is done hands-on in the process of constructing that season’s robot.
