31 May Team Europe 2018
Team Europe represented by Catalonia is a FIRST Global Team formed by five teenagers. We are from Girona, a city of Catalonia between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees.
Even though this is our first time competing in the FIRST Global Challenge, we have been doing robotics since we were young. We think doing robotics allows us to focus on what we like, and by this kind of activity we are always learning and improving ourselves. Robotics isn’t only a hobby, it’s the path we want to follow for our future and a way to see life, which has made us learn more than only technology. After all these years we have improved our work in group, communications, and we have met many different people. We have done other challenges such as the FIRST Lego League, the World Robot Olympia and Vex Robotics, in which we have competed in the World Championship for the last two years. This is also our first time working with Rev, which we think is amazing. We love working and trying different types of robot materials, it’s impressive all the things you can learn. We made the unboxing to know all the material we are able to use during the FIRST Global Competition, and we have also built the different parts of the field.
Now we are working in our robot, improving the basis and the arm extension in order to overcome the challenge, and we have also been thinking about different strategies to complete the field. All of us are really excited for this competition, we will keep working hard to give our best!
