Escape Velocity

What is Escape Velocity?

Escape Velocity is a 3-day event at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Washington DC. This event promotes STEM and promotes science fiction, comics and science all at one event. Check out the video below to see highlights from last years event. See a cameo from Peregrine at 0:24!

What We Do

Representatives from our team went to Escape Velocity to show off our robot and spread the values of FIRST to kids and and teach them what FIRST is about and inspire them to pursue STEM fields.
