About Us


Team 2491 No Mythic is made up of students from Great River School and Avalon School. We participate in FIRST Robotics. FIRST is an internationally known and recognized program that teaches children and young adults how to form creative solutions to technological challenges. Our team is currently in our 9th year of existence.

In the 2017 season, we hope to have fun, learn a ton, and enjoy being a community. In the past we have achieved several awards such as the Team Spirit award which we won by displaying the most team spirit in the regional competition in 2011. Our team dyed our hair purple, our coach had a mohawk, and we introduced our unicorn mascot. In 2013 we were awarded the Gracious Professionalism award for helping other teams improve their robots. In 2015, we were on the winning alliance at the North Star Competition, along with Wave Robotics and the Errors, which qualified us to go to the Championship competition in St. Louis. In 2016, we won Team Spirit again, for our wild purple tie dye and crazy cheering.

Great River School sponsors FIRST Robotics Team 2491, “No Mythic”. No Mythic is a team made up of students from Great River School and Avalon School. They are charter schools located in St. Paul MN. Our team is going into our 10th year.  This year we have a stronger team than ever before, and are looking forward to even greater success in our competition.
