FIRST® LEGO® League Robotics Partners Conference


Gary Walsh, Acadia Robotics Director, attended the FIRST® LEGO® League Partners Conference in Nashua, New Hampshire from June 11th to 16th.

This is an annual event bringing together, globally, Organizational and Affiliate Partners, as well as Technicians, Mentors, Sponsors, Officials, and Staff.

This was the year that all four divisions (FIRST® LEGO® Junior, FIRST® LEGO® League, FTC, AND FRC) attended the same Conference. It was a great success!

The Hydro Dynamics® Game Challenge for 2017/18 was revealed by FIRST® engineer Scott Evans. Challenge details will be made public in late August.

On the final evening of the event, Gary Walsh hosts the ever popular and well-attended East Coast Kitchen Party. This musical jam includes fellow musicians from several Provinces, States, and Countries. This event has now become a Conference tradition - a great way to bring this major event to a close.

Next year, a Global World Conference will be held, which only takes place every few years.
