FTC Team Space

Thinking outside box in an 18″ box

Welcome

Welcome to the website of FTC Team Space, on our website you can find more information about our team, but also FTC itself. If you have additional questions feel free to use the form on the contact page.

Space is a FIRST Tech Challenge team from the Newmancollege in Breda, The Netherlands. The team consists of 8 enthausiastic students who share a passion for technology. Every member has its own task to make sure all the goals are met. The members are divided in several sub-teams. These are the builders, the engineers, the programmers and the PR-team.

Outreach

After our debut in the 2015-2016 season we grew from a regular group of friends to a structured team where everyone has a clear task. We’ve learned a lot in the previous seasons and we’re able to use that knowledge to create our own robot. Aditionally, we want to share our knowledge with as many people to help them fix their problems.

A good example would be the coaching of 8th grade FIRST Lego League teams. The FIRST Lego League is a comparable competition in which teams also compete with programmable robots. We also give workshops about FTC and FLL in 6th grades of different Dutch primary schools in the hopes of making them enthausiastic for these programs in the future.
