The 2013-2014 season marks Quincy Public Schools Team HYPER’s 19th year involved in the First Robotics Competition.

Though all activities center around the robot and competition, Team HYPER has become much more. We provide an environment for students to test out different interests and skills through hands-on experience. We are a diverse group of individuals focused on accomplishing our goals.

2014 Team Goals

  • Recruitment
  • Public Relations – Sponsorship & Fundraising & Web Design
  • Increase team efficiency
  • Successful Build Season

Team Organization

Team HYPER is made up of volunteers from our sponsor, teachers, parents, alumni, and students. Students and teachers come from both Quincy and North Quincy High School. Engineers, machinists, and volunteers come from our corporate sponsor(s), various partnerships, and alumni.
