The FIRST World Championship event is more than just the matches. It includes hundreds of seminar sessions, an exhibit hall full of colleges that offer scholarships to FIRST FRC alumni and another exhibit hall full of businesses that are looking to hire FIRST FRC alums after they complete college. Plus their is a hall full of robot part vendors that we can scout for help on next year’s robot. The registration covers this plus participation in the Championship matches. The total fee is a hefty $5,000, but you can help us out $500 at a time.
