In this video, the three members of team Techno Tigers, 63840T, explain the many contributions they made in order to achieve the ultimate goal of building a stronger robotics community in Turkey. As the members of Techno Tigers, we have been translating manuals from English to Turkish since the day we started VEX robotics. This way, more people who do not speak English can access the manuals and start teams. Besides translating manuals, we have organized an offseason tournament where we explained how the game works and also gave seminars and taught interactive courses. These courses and seminars were on how to code, what the Engineering Design Process is and how to use it, and what the Engineering Design Notebook is and how to write it. This year, as Techno Tigers, we decided that we want to do more. So, besides translating manuals and giving many lectures and seminars, we decided to establish a team and coach them throughout the following seasons. So, we teamed up with Çağdaş Yaşamı Destekleme Derneği (ÇYDD) which is a non-profit NGO in Turkey. We established a team called Revolution with 7 members, all from ÇYDD, and guided them through the process. The programmer of our team is also the mentor of Revolution. We are really pleased to see how successful they have been in the tournaments so far. They even beat us during the finals of the Nişantaşı University tournament and became Tournament Champions.
