Symposium (or SWATposium) is SWAT’s annual robotics conference that brings together nearly 40 FRC teams from both Canada and the States for a day of guest speakers, workshops and social activities. Annually held in the fall, it helps prepare both veteran and rookie teams for the coming season. In past, we’ve had guest speakers including Karthik Kanagasabapathy (1114), Mark Breadner (FIRST Canada) and Chris Hadfield (Canadian Astronaut). Every year, well respected teams from everywhere run workshops for many topics and all skill levels. Additionally, this symposium is not just about FRC, we also have a variety of workshops about FLL, Jr. FLL and VEX. SWAT is proud to host this event every year and continually strives to make every year bigger and better than the last.
