26 Jul Team Netherlands 2019 🇳🇱
Team Netherlands is composed of the youngest students of FIRST Robotics Competition team 5412, Impossible Robotics, with students from seven different school located all over the Northern part of the Netherlands. We don’t necessarily build the best robots, but we are a Community and Outreach team, spreading Inspiration and STEM. We are working on re-building our educational system and creating a strong European FIRST Community where creativity is celebrated.
We completed five seasons of FRC and we are honored and grateful to represent the Netherlands for the third time at the FIRST Global Challenge. The last edition of the FIRST Global Challenge and the following FRC events were very special to us. After the extraordinary FIRST Global edition in Mexico City, we demonstrated one of the main goals of FIRST Global, bringing the youth of this world together. We were impressed with the Mexican hospitality and passion for robotics and made a lot of new friends. With the help of those friends, we returned to Mexico for the Mexico City FRC Regional as the first and only International FRC team ever to compete at a Mexican FRC Regional. After this event we travelled on a bus with the oldest Mexican FRC team to the Bayou FRC Regional near New Orleans, crossing the Mexican/US border together.
We hope to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone, reach out and cross borders to unite the world.
