What is



FIRST is a worldwide organization, inspiring kids to pursue their dreams and learn through hands on challenges in robotics and science. Our team Electric Mayhem 4930 is proud to have been participating in FIRST Robotics Competition since 2013. Along with FRC, our school participates in FIRST Lego League and FIRST Tech Challenge.

Who Are We?

Electric Mayhem - FRC Team 4930

Our original FRC team, which started in 2014, has grown tremendously and led to the creation of many more teams in all areas of FIRST. The team, which was initially started by a small group of ambitious students, has grown to reach and influence multiple deteremined students across Nichols High School, and continues to expand each year. Our school offers sports credit for the team members, allowing them to focus and put in their best effort on all our fantastic robots.

Electric Mayhem - FTC Team 12736 and 12737

The newest edition to the Nichols School, Electric Mayhem family, our FTC team. This team is made up of the students of the engineering class, a senior/junior elective, in our school. By having a class become a robotics team, it not only teaches students engineering skills, it gives them a real experience of engineering work environment.

Electric Mayhem - FLL Team

The FLL Team is made up of students in Nichols Middle School. Like the Upper School, this team is made up of hardworking students, who are eager to learn and use robots. Despite being younger, our students put just as much effort into their work as any of our other teams. The students from this team generally go on to join our FRC Team or our FTC Team, or even both!

Why Do We Participate?

We participate because our school has an overwhelming number of students who love building, working with, and competing with robots. FIRST allows our students to gain real world knowledge, outside of the classroom. Students overcome challenges and problems they never thought they would be dealing with in High School, and prepares them for future jobs.
