We invite you to join us at the 2010 FIRST Robotics Competition Washington DC Regional! This is our second year at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (Hall C), and I join our Regional Director, Pattie Cook, in extending a hearty welcome to Jr.FLL, FLL and FTC teams from the metropolitan area.

Bring the family! This event is free and open to the general public. Watch high school student-built robots compete. Visit Technology Row, Scholarship Row and our FIRST Expo, featuring Junior FIRST LEGO League, FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge exhibits and activities.
