ebm-papst at the FIRST® Championship: Three days of Gracious Professionalism®

By Bob Sobolewski, President and CEO at ebm-papst Inc.

FIRST® Championship

CTFirst resized 600What keeps ebm papst’s team – our engineering, production and marketing people – fresh and energized? Observing the creativity and fun that 30,000 motivated young people can generate over three days during a riveting robotics event that’s called “The Olympics of the Mind.”

Continuing our support of FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and FIRST teams in Connecticut, from April 26-28 we travelled to the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, where students, fans, families, educators and company leaders from all over the world gathered for the annual FIRST ® Championship.

More than 600 teams from 32 countries demonstrated Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition® (that means competing AND working with your opponent) in the three levels of FIRST: FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL); FIRST® Tech Challenge (FTC) and FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) while 40 teams of 6 to 9-year-olds showcased their smarts during the Junior FIRST® LEGO® League World Festival Expo.

In addition to serving on FIRST®’s regional planning committee and chairing Connecticut FIRST®’s executive advisory board, I’ve been honored to serve as an FRC judge at both regional and national competitions for almost 15 years. Every year, the teams get better and the judging gets tougher!

ebm-papst’s booth at the championship helped students and mentors learn not only about the small ebm-papst tubeaxial fans that cool their teams’ robots, but also how our larger radial and axial fans are employed across dozens of industries and hundreds of applications.

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? 
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a  
tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. 
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. 
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Hey there! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to  
ask. Does operating a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work? 
I'm brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary everyday. 
I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and thoughts online. 
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
