Each year at the FIRST Championship Event there are conferences offered on Wednesday night and Thursday of the event! The conferences range from information about "Octocanum: An introduction to a novel hybrid drive system using pneumatics", to the Chairman’s award, to how to maintain relationships with sponsors.
At the door, a multi-conference pass is $40 dollars and a one-conference pass is $10. The pass is good for anyone on the team — not person specific.
Check out the schedule and abstracts! Pass it around to members on your team and have them come to the presentations - it’s worth the cost of the pass.
