“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.”
Techno Wolves FRC Team 5518 is a high school student-led FIRST Robotics Competition team based in Apex, North Carolina. We are a fourth-year 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.
Techno Wolves originated as a group of ambitious students from Wake STEM Early College High School (STEM ECHS) who wanted to pursue a positive impact on their community after some of their commitment to FRC Team 435, the Robodogs, formerly affiliated with Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School (currently with the Longleaf School of the Arts). Additional history of our team is shown in the following timeline:
