The Wired Wizards were founded in 2013 by Jazmin Capezza as an outreach program for UNCW’s ACM chapter and an opportunity for her son and his friends to put their engineering passions to the test. Jazmin and the original founding members worked hard to grow from a small team of friends into a large, very active, team funded entirely by local business and individuals in the Wilmington area.
The yearly operating costs of a World Championship level FRC team of this size and experience is roughly $50,000 including registration, materials, equipment, and travel. Your support is essential to keep the student’s and parent’s financial burden of participating on the team to a minimum. Each year the Wired Wizards, a team consisting of over 30 high schoolers from each of the local high schools and homeschoolers, build a 120lbs, roughly 2’x2’x4′ robot to compete with and against some of the brightest young minds in the world!
