PIRATES 5992 is a FIRST Robotics Team based in West Orange, New Jersey, with members from both Seton Hall Preparatory School and Mount Saint Dominic Academy. Our main goal is to follow the mission of FIRST by engaging our members in various STEM activites, encouraging students to innovate collectively, and introducing them to a career in STEM.
In 2018, we were very grateful to announce our collaboration with Mount Saint Dominic Academy, an all-girls high school. As Seton Hall Prep is an all-boys school, opening Team 5992 to MSDA marks a significant step in promoting diversity and the women in STEM movement. We firmly believe in equal opportunity for everyone to succeed, and we see sharing our facilities with others as a significant advancement towards achieving this goal.
