The FIRST Robotics Championship Event was held from April 16, 2019 through April 20, 2019 in Houston, Texas. The George R. Brown Convention Center was packed with 35,000 attendees and IPCEF was invited to exhibit in the Innovation Fair.
We had a great time sharing the IPCEF mission and goals with every individual that stopped at the booth. This was a great opportunity to create awareness around our foundation and get students and teachers excited about hands-on learning about electronics.
We had the opportunity to connect with elementary and high school students, parents, teachers, mentors and a handful of company representatives. Of the students we spoke to, 100% were excited to hear about IPCEF, wanted to get involved, and asked to learn more about participation.
It was exciting to hear from students who want to pursue careers in the electronic manufacturing/engineering space and share how IPCEF can help with their goals. We can’t wait to connect with more students at future events! And the next one started today. Follow our Instagram to see the fun we are having in Detroit.
The IPC Education Foundation will host industry professionals in an informal setting to provide our network of students, educators, and other professionals information on career and technical topics related to the electronics industry.
This event will be an informal, high-engagement Q&A hosted by the team at IPCEF and IPC Emerging Engineers.
Follow-up content will be shared with registrants, and if approved, a recording will be posted to the IPCEF YouTube Channel.
