Early this year FIRST, a global nonprofit organization that pursues the promotion of science and technology in young people, launched a game for which a man-sized robot must be designed and built. This FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) is one of the most prestigious robotic competitions for young people aged 15 to 25 years. Team Rembrandts, one of the participating teams consisting of combination of HBO, WO, MBO students and pupils in secondary school, has worked hard to create a robot that was presented on Friday, February 13th, 2015.
Team Rembrandts not only sought a package through and through, but it also had to be applied as a complete workspace. In addition, appearance and longevity were also very important. The youngsters took clearly not satisfaction with a simple wooden coffin!
Faes Cases was immediately excited by this whole project and a partnership was soon born. The students had already brainstormed and offered our advisors their packaging concept. This concept was translated by our designers for a multifunctional flight case which exceeded all expectations: the result was a combination of a transport, programming table, robot table and presentation box in 1!
