We had a great competition and I believe that most of the teams as well as the parents and visitors enjoyed themselves. Like with all competitions, there is always things that just don't work out for some teams. That is sad, but also part of the whole experience of robotics competitions. I always tell all my teams that " if something can go wrong - it probably will go wrong". It is just that over the years we have seen this happen so many times. The disappointment is always terrible.
But succeed like success and we are so happy for those teams that were succesfull. We hope to see you all back here next year. Just don't give up!

At our event we will also have 5 Junior FLL teams, exhibiting their research and little robots that they have prepared. Please support them by having a lok at their stuff. They've worked really hard getting ready for this. It is also their first time doing this, so let's make it a wonderful experience for them also.
We will allow 1 hour for gameplay teams to get ready.
We will setup 2 playing fields in the pits area
The program for the day will be available from 27 February 2017 on the website.
