Detroit Wrap Up and Volunteer Thanks

May 01, 2018 Written by Frank Merrick.

Congratulations to our Chairman's Award Winners at FIRST Championship Detroit, Team 2834, the Bionic Black Hawks! Congratulations to our winning alliance and ALL the volunteers that made the FIRST Championship possible!



One Sunday night in July 1969, one billion people huddled around their radios and TV screens in awe as we walked on the moon for the first time.

In that moment, the world was united in celebration of human ingenuity and inspired by the possibility that by working together, we can quite literally reach the stars.


Blast off with FIRST Launch 2019: Gather your squad today.
