We're team GentleBotz, an FTC team from the Newmancollege in Breda. Our group consists of 8 members from 14 to 18 years old. We come together at least once a week to work on our robot, but sometimes on the weekends and holidays as well. We learn a lot from each other but most importantly, we have a lot of fun together. Everyone has their own task in the team, from building to programming, keeping our website updated, and managing PR and sponsorships. We have a fun and diverse team with HAVO and VWO students from the 9th to 12th grade.
What is FTC?
FTC is a part of F.I.R.S.T., an organization from the USA that aims to introduce young people to technology and innovation in a special way. This is done by building robots, according to certain standards and rules, which you then compete with. It is also the intention that you spread F.I.R.S.T.'s intention with other young people, schools, and companies.
What are our goals?
Our goals are to have a good complete robot and therefore also do well in the matches.
We also want to have a good time there. Of course, we would also like to win to be selected for the world finals.
Our goal is also to make new contacts with other teams, so we can help each other to a different level.
