AGain this year the FIRST world championship events are split between two locations–Houston and Detroit. We qualified for the world championships in St. Louis in 2016 (when they were still a single event). We will work hard to make it back to Worlds this year.
Here is a link to information about the Detroit World event: https://www.firstchampionship.org/detroit-home. We attended the event last year because there are many useful conference sessions at Worlds. (We snuck into watch a few matches, too.) The FIRST world event is more exciting than any other high school competitive event we know about. If you can make it there even for a day, we encourage you to go. It’s all free for general attendance at the matches and for all conference events.
