The first day of RobotsConf, a new conference designed to transform 150 coders into makers in just 48 hours, was inspirational, educational, and exhausting! Attendees heard keynotes from Whurley, and Super Awesome Sylvia (with dad), then rocketed through educational sessions that covered everything from electrons to artificial intelligence. When the educational sessions ended, the doors were opened to the drone room and the robot build area. Excited and inspired attendees immediately started planning and creating robots, some of which can be seen taking shape in the slideshow.

Check back later for the Day 2 pictures which include completed robots, the SumoBot competition, and the RobotsConf Science Faire!
