For over 100 years, the Wisconsin State Education Convention has been the largest gathering of educational leaders in the state.
Let's show EVERY school in the state what FIRST Wisconsin is all about!
We are taking full sized FRC, FTC and FLL fields to the Wisconsin State Education Convention, Tuesday January 16th to Thursday January 18th, 2024!
The annual convention is an opportunity for district leadership to meet with our teams, students, and mentors. At the event, those demoing can share their passion for FIRST and how it supports the educational development of students across the state.
Join us at the 2024 Wisconsin State Education Convention in Milwaukee on January 17-18 and be a part of an extraordinary opportunity to demonstrate the incredible impact of STEM education through FIRST programs.
We are actively seeking teams from across the state to showcase the remarkable achievements of your FIRST program. This is your chance to inspire district leadership, make a powerful impression, and drive positive change in education.
What we need from teams:
- Bring your robot
- 2 to 4 students to operate and answer questions
- A dedicated coach/mentor
- 20x30 foam board describing your program
- Handouts or giveaways
- FLL and FTC: Demonstrate the current "FIRST in Show" game
