The Team

Techno Wolves FRC Team 5518 is a high school student-led FIRST Robotics Competition team based in Apex, North Carolina. We are a community-based team partnered with Wake STEM Early College High School at NC State University. Techno Wolves serves as a valuable learning experience to all of our members; the team structure is based off of an existing model in the corporate world, giving members an early, competitive edge when applying for jobs and college. Additionally, our robotics program encourages students to actively promote the team by attending outreach events, participating in community service, raising funds, and reaching out to local businesses/organizations to support us.

Our Mission - “To enrich the minds of high school students by promoting an innovative learning experience with our community – such as local businesses, schools, and mentors – via the exploration of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) through the exposure of robotics and business management principles.”

The FIRST Program

Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”
