About Wired Wizards

We are a non-profit team of New Hanover County high school students dedicated to the principles of STEM, entrepreneurship, and service. Our team competes in FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), an international organization under FIRST Inspires (See more below).

Founded in 2013, our goal is to be a community-based group of students from a variety of racial, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. Wired Wizards is student-led and provides members with real-world challenges and opportunities to learn key aspects of a business, including design, manufacturing, information technology, finance, and marketing. Through regular meetings, competitions, fundraising, and volunteering, we achieve our mission of providing STEM experiences to Cape Fear Region students.

The Mission of FIRST

FIRST was founded in 1989 by Dean Kamen to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators by engaging them in exciting, mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence communication, and leadership.

Our team is participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), for ages 14 – 18. FIRST is an international organization with regional, state, and national levels and is recognized by many colleges through scholarships.
