Who are we?
Welcome to FRC Team 5511, Cortechs Robotics. We are a community robotics team located in South Western Wake County, North Carolina. The Cortechs community has been going strong for six years as we continue to grow and inspire STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) in the community. Our team family has been pulled from all places across the county, contributing to a wide distribution of aspiring engineers, business leaders, and students skilled in community operations.
What is FIRST?
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a non-profit organization designed to inspire young people’s interest and participation in science and technology, and to motivate them to pursue education and career opportunities in the STEM fields.

What is Cortechs’ role in FIRST?
Cortechs Robotics is a sixth-year team, having been formed in late 2014. In our rookie year, we attended the North Carolina offseason event THOR in 2014, competed at the 2015 Regional Competition, and moved on to the World Championship in St. Louis. In our second year, we won the THOR offseason event, the Guilford District event, and qualified for the NC State Championship. Our third year we won the UNC Asheville Event, and qualified for the Houston World Championships, where our previous captain Sreekar Mantena won the Dean’s List Award. Last year, we won the Wake County Event and were Finalists in the UNC Pembroke Event and NC State Championship, qualifying us for the Houston World Championship again. At the World Championship last year we made it to playoffs. This year, we won the Wake County Event again and hope to continue our winning streak for the seasons to come.
Part of the Cortechs mission is to inspire STEM in the community, and that is why we sponsor many FIRST Lego League and FIRST Lego League Jr. teams. As part of our Mobile Workshop Program, Cortechs frequently schedules outreach events to ensure all areas of the community have the opportunity to experience the FIRST values.
