The initial objective was to form the team to participate in a dignified way in the competition of the eliminatory phase of the Vic Universty. It was a medium-term project, keeping in mind that the team is very young. For us it was a great surprise, but at the same time a great illusion, to qualify in the first place of this round and participate at the Spain’s final, which took place on March 18 in Logroño.
The Grand Final took place in Logroño on 18 March. Although the level was very high, the teams generally made up of boys and girls at the age limit allowed (from 10 to 16 years old) and our very young team, we had a great success, getting the ‘Premio LEGO Educations ROBOTICS a las Jóvenes Promesas’. This award has allowed us to qualify to participate in the competition Legoland North American Open, in San Diego (California) from 19 to 21 May.
Lastly, we would like to point out that 12,000 boys and girls participated in 1600 teams, of which only 51 were classified for the state final, of these 20 were Catalan teams, and only our team came from the region of Vallès Oriental. And of the 5 qualifying places to go to the USA (3 places in Sant Louis, 1 place in California and 1 place in Arkansas), there’re 3 catalan teams. The other two teams are from the FEDAC El Vendrell school and the Viaró School.
We are the only team that competes as families.
We are the only European representative on the American championship.
