The collaboration between AAE and the Rembrandts Team began six years ago due to the enthusiasm of former AAE director/owner, William Pijnenburg. William was actually a fanatic supporter of the FIRST robotics competition, an event organised annually in the United States that focuses on inspiring youth about technology.
These days, the Rembrandts Team has built a very strong reputation as a robotics team. This is due to winning various awards during the FIRST competition, while the icing on the cake was achieving the world title during the FIRST Robotics Competition in 2019 in Detroit. This was the first team from Europe to win this extraordinary award, surpassing more than 4,000 international teams.
