Well, the World Championship isn't THAT big... Only 151 middle school teams... And 400 high school teams... For a total of 551 teams... With usually at least 4 members in each team. So that's only... Woah... 2204 people... Yeah, you're right, I don't know if the convention center can fit any more!

Don't forget 47 college teams. Those are typically bigger teams, too...

Re: special guest appearance

You guys are underestimating the size of the convention center. All the teams could probably fit in just one hall but we have 2. There are a total of 4 halls that the other events will be using.

Re: special guest appearance

That is true. FYI my team has 14 people. :-)

Also, if you see people running around in white suits, say hi to them.

Re: special guest appearance

Hmm... question for you. What if you were given the choice between meeting:

1) A TV star from a science-related show.
2) A Nobel prize winner.
3) An Astronaut.
4) An extremely successful high-tech entrepreneur.

Which would you choose?

Personally, I'm kind of torn between #2 and #3...

Re: special guest appearance

It'd be cool if someone like Bill Gates came. It would probably inspire a lot of people. But I like Kari Byron. She was really funny last year. I wonder if Bill Nye could come. Everybody would be so excited.

3 or 4.

But I'd only want 3 if they flew Mercury, Gemini or Apollo...

I think it would be really cool if the Google guys came down. (Larry Page and Sergey Brin)

I met Don Pettit of ST-126... He grew up 40 miles from where I live and went to the College I want to attend. His brother Tom, works at HP Corvallis, OR, and was a mentor on FRC Team 957 when I was a mentor.
