Today, we’re recapping FIRST® Championship Detroit, which took place April 25-28. It was our first time hosting Championship in the Motor City, and we were so impressed by the warm welcome shown by the host city.

A record crowd of more than 40,000 people joined us in Detroit, truly “Making it Loud” for FIRST! 700 teams from 37 countries participated in the event.

Here are a few of our favorite moments from the Detroit Championship:
