Montclair High School
Schweers Technologies mentors students from our local public High School - Montclair High School. These students are member’s of the school’s Robotics team. Due to this relationship we now sponsor the Montclair High School Robotics Team.
The Team known as Team 555 was founded in 2001 and is open to all interested students attending the high school. Team 555 competes with other teams thru an international organization known as FIRST. FIRST was founded in 1989 by inventor Dean Kamen to inspire students to participate in science, technology, engineering and math careers. FIRST stands for “For Inspiration ad Recognition of Science and Technology.”
Many members of the team go on to gain admission to prestigious universities and often choose majors in Aeronautical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Industrial Design, Mathematics etc.
In addition these high school students mentor middle school students preparing them to participate in the rigorous high school program.
We are proud to be part of this community, to mentor these students and to fund their work.
