From the archives: “There are many unique challenges to working internationally, there are different languages and cultures that must be successfully navigated. Founded by FRC team 3132 and FTC Team 5972, MWB allows teams who work across borders to collaborate and share best practices. Additionally, MWB reduces the barriers for teams to start working and collaborating internationally.
MWB Partner teams include FRC teams 3132 (Thunder Down Under) and 1403 (Cougar Robotics), FTC teams 3595 (Schrödinger’s Hat), 4251 (Cougar Robotics) and 5972 (Patronum Bots), and FLL team Project Bucephalus. If you are interested in becoming a partner, email us at email@example.com.
