The team was only one of four teams selected to represent FIRST at the Conference. Azo Inc sponsored the trip for the 2 mentors and 2 students to attend the trade-show (shown above along with the team’s Azo Inc mentor).

Here is a summary video of the expo. Although the Memphis team is not shown, at about the 1 min mark, one of the other teams representing FIRST at the Conference (TEAM 1323  -Madtown Robotics from California), is shown in the video.
