This year, in partnership with Synapse, we’re hosting an Industry Showcase Exhibitor Challenge at ROBOTICON on October 12 & 13. The goal of the Industry Showcase is to get participating students as well as event guests, excited about the real world applications and career possibilities of the science, technology, engineering, manufacturing and related knowledge and skills students are exercising in the course of their competitive robotics seasons.
To that end, we challenge Industry Showcase exhibitors at ROBOTICON 2019 to make the most interesting, interactive and exciting exhibits they possibly can, to tell the story of why students might want to have a career or learn the skills necessary to be successful in their company. Exhibits will be judged by students, Synapse and FCDI board members.
