About Us


We are a student-led robotics team that competes in FIRST Robotics Competitions. Our team was founded in 2009 at Holly Springs High School in North Carolina. The mission of Hawktimus Prime is to build a hardworking and cooperative team of gracious professionals to innovate boldly, implement efficiently, impact meaningfully, and gain skills that empower them to change the world.


FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a robotics community that prepares young people for the future through a suite of inclusive, team-based robotics programs for ages 4-18 (PreK-12) that can be facilitated in school or in structured afterschool programs. Boosted by a global support system of volunteers, educators, and sponsors that includes over 200 of the Fortune 500 companies, teams operate under a signature set of FIRST Core Values to conduct research, fundraise, design, build, and showcase their achievements during annual challenges.
