The Revenge of The Robotic Nerds!

Do they look like a group of nerds? geeks? heck yeah! But they are cool! They will be your future robot engineers, designers, vanguards of a new age of technologies that will run in your home like clockwork. This is just one group of many that have registered to take part of Dean Kamen's FIRST 2009 competition. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was created to ignite, inspire, provide the guiding light to young people in order to get involved in science and technology. The competition will be held on April 16-18, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia - USA and there is still time to register your team if you are ready to show what you can succeed. Imagine what there is to see, 500 robots competing against each other in 6 different fields within 250, 000 sq. ft. of team pits and multiple activities. There will be about 10,000 young people excited to win prizes and face the challenges given to them as a team! I congratulate all of them for following their dreams, no matter if they win or loose they will all be winners in my book.
