About Us

Team Europe represented by Catalonia is a FIRST Global Team formed by five teenagers. We are from Girona, a city of Catalonia between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees.

Even though this is our first time competing in the FIRST Global Challenge, we have been doing robotics since we were young. We think doing robotics allows us to focus on what we like, and by this kind of activity we are always learning and improving ourselves. Robotics isn’t only a hobby, it’s the path we want to follow for our future and a way to see life, which has made us learn more than only technology. After all these years we have improved our work in group, communications, and we have met many different people. We have done other challenges such as the FIRST Lego League, the World Robot Olympia and Vex Robotics, in which we have competed in the World Championship for the last two years. This is also our first time working with Rev, which we think is amazing. We love working and trying different types of robot materials, it’s impressive all the things you can learn!

ARNAU

I’m Arnau, one of the constructors of the team, and the second driver (also with Narcís). I’m 16 years old, and robotics is currently part of my day to day life, basically I spend more time doing robotics than staying at home! I like robotics because the feeling of learning and staying with my team is so nice.

JAUME

Hello! I’m Jaume, the team’s programmer, and I’m 17 years old. I’ve always been interested in technology and computers, and I started doing robotics 3 years ago. I like robotics because I see it as a door to the future of technology, a way to let young people explore and discover new opportunities for their lives. I find this very exciting and it gives me a solid reason to keep doing this activity!

MARIONA

Hi, I’m Mariona! I do the communicational work and social media content, and I also help building the robot. I’m 15 years old, and I started doing robotcis when I was 10, because I loved technology and I wanted to try something new and challenging. I think doing robotics broadens our knowledge and our vision of the world, making us being used to work in a team and improving ourselves.

NARCÍS

Hello everyone, I’m Narcís one of the programmers and constructors in the team. I’m also the second driver with Arnau and, if it’s necessary, I help developing the social media content. I’m 15 years old and I started doing robotics when I was 14. I’m passionate about robotics because you can create what you want and what you are able to do. Robotics is a way to improve our lives, our lifestyle!

ROGER

Hey, I’m Roger, the driver and one of the constructors of the team. I’m 17 years old. I’ve been doing robotics for 7 years. During this time I have learned a lot of interesting stuff, and also I have evolved a lot as a person. Also I think robotics is an important activity to grow our knowledge and create a better world for the future generations.
