German fischertechnik conventions
These are pictures I made over several years during the fischertechnik convention in Germany. Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to use thumbnails in here yet, so it has to go this way.

Robotmc TeamBuildingDay
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 configurations.
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 compilationvideos.
In 2017, the timer was functioning. The explanation of each challenge is in the video.
