The pictures taken during the TeamBuildingDay over several years show
impressions per team per challenge. On their site you can read
(in Dutch, so if you can't read that, please use an online
translator) what the challenges are about.
Each team gets a timeframe to complete the challenge, so if the
first attempt fails, more attempts may follow.

In 2015, time had no role in the challenge,
appropriately named "Wielen" ("Wheels"). You just had to
complete it, which proved to be difficult enough. Each team got
1 time to prove itself per challenge. Challenge 1 part 1: from
any place off 1 wheel, sense it and get around it for at
least 360 degrees. Part 2: from the white starting line: sense
it, approach it and get around it for at least 360 degrees. Part
3: same as 2, but the robot has to be turned 90 degrees to the
left at start.
Challenge 2: two tires, same start as in challenge 1.
Challenge 3: three tires, with varying start positions and
The videos on Youtube I put together are this time not per team,
but per (part of the) challenge. Reason is that every team had
just 1 opportunity per challenge.
In 2016, the timer went out of order, so timing had no
real role. The explanation of each challenge is in the 2
In 2017, the timer was functioning. The explanation of
each challenge is in the video.
