January 30th at the University of South Florida Polytechnic in Lakeland

Teams played the game FACE-OFF!, shared their FIRST experiences with conference visitors, checked out the amazing exhibits, received lots of free stuff from exhibitors, and spent an hour visiting with FIRST Chairman, John Abele.

We thank the following teams for participating in the conference:
