The 18th annual Orlando Regional was an amazing and successful event by any measure! Sixty-three FIRST Robotics Competition teams from around Florida, the nation and the world competed for top honors and a spot at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis in April, in the exciting FIRST Stronghold competition.
It took an enormous amount of work by an incredibly dedicated group of volunteers – over 150 of them! – to produce the Orlando Regional, and the support of great sponsors like ComcastNBCUniversal, Army ROTC, Walt Disney World, the Florida High Tech Corridor, the Air Force and many others, as well as the kindness of the University of Central Florida, where the event is hosted, and local companies like Dominos and Jimmy Johns who donated meals to volunteers, and good folks willing to get pied in the face for the greater good of our next generation of science and technology leaders.
Congratulations to all our Orlando Regional Competitors, and especially to all our amazing award winners!
See you in 2017, if not before!
