About Us

Team 2491 NoMythic is based in St. Paul, Minnesota and made up of students from Great River School and Avalon School. We participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition. FIRST is an internationally known and recognized program that teaches children and young adults how to form creative solutions to technological challenges. Our team’s rookie year was 2008 and we are currently in our 16th year of existence.

Each year, we build a robot in six weeks that is made to play a specific game. Along the way, our team members learn skills in programming, design, marketing, organization, leadership, and, of course, in building a robot. We also work hard to make sure everyone on our team feels heard, valued, and supported.

Our team rocks purple tie-dye and unicorns wherever we go. We’ve qualified for the World Championship four times (in 2015, 2017, 2020, and 2022) and the Minnesota State Championship three times (2018, 2020, and 2022). In 2022, we got to compete at Northern Lights and won the engineering inspiration award, qualifying for the World Championship for a fourth time. In 2023, we are competing at the Northern Lights Regional and the 10,000 Lakes Regional.

As a team, we strive to have fun, learn a ton, and enjoy being a community. We have a strong team dedicated to doing good work together.
