As the first team in all of Central Eastern Europe, our goal is to show that everyone can build robots or more. We also want to spread the ideas of FIRST. FIRST. that is (short for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology – “For inspiration and recognition of science and technology”) – an international non-profit organization organizing the FIRST Robotics Competition, FIRST LEGO League, FIRST LEGO League Jr. and FIRST Tech Challenge, whose aim is to develop and inspire students in the field of engineering and technology. It was founded in 1989 by Dean Kamen and Woody Flowers.
Within a few years, gradually more and more people know what an organization and the world of robotics are.
Spice Gaers in numbers
Hours spend on OutReach
One example of our activity are Spice Camps during 3 days of classes we teach children aged 5-14 to build and program robots from LEGO and Line Folowers, or tiny robots that use a color sensor to drive along a designated line.
Our team organized a charity FIFA tournament, which took place in one of the schools. We managed to get money for a sick boy, he needed immediate surgery because of heart problems. We collected over PLN 4,500 for his treatment.
We also work with universities in Lublin, our previous team members are now mentors to set up their robotic wheels there and help in our cooperation. Universities help us a lot when creating our tournaments. And that’s not all you can see us on TV where we sometimes perform, hear on the radio or meet us at events such as TEDx Tarnów
