We're very excited to announce that FIRST has partnered with the National Math Festival, which will take place Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 10am til 7pm in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, in Washington, D.C. The exhibit will be all day - high school students and their mentors bring robots and explain the math behind building them.

I am still recruiting high school teams (preferably FTC) to support an exhibit at the National Math Festival. Participating teams must document and present on how they utilize mathematics in the design of their robots, strategies for playing the game and STEM outreach.

As with all FIRST-sponsored exhibit opportunities, teams will be provided with lunch and parking. I will share specific hours and logistics as we get closer to the event.

Take care, and thanks in advance.
