The Wired Wizards

The Wired Wizards

We are a non-profit team of high school students in the Cape Fear region dedicated to the principles of STEM, entrepreneurship, and service. Our team competes in FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), an international organization under FIRST.

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 students in the Cape Fear region.

FIRST was founded in 1989 by Dean Kamen to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators. FIRST engages students in hands-on, mentor-based programs that inspire innovation, develop science, engineering, and technology skills, and foster self-confidence, communication, and leadership. As an international organization with regional, state, and national levels, FIRST is recognized by many colleges through scholarships.
