For yet another year, the National Educational Robotics Competition for Primary school, Junior and Senior High- School Students, organized by the Non-Profit Organization of Educational Robotics, Science and Technology WRO Hellas, with its strategic partner COSMOTE, is realized.
The competition, which has received more than 3,000 students' entries from all over Greece, is an exciting 5-month journey. Students, teachers and professors participating from 13 Regions of Greece, are being asked to design and build a complete robotic construction-model, according to the themes below:
· For primary school students (8-12 years old): Colonize Mars & WeDo 2.0 football
· For junior high school students (13-15 years old): Byzantine Empire & Communications
· For high school students (16-18 years old): Sustainable Development and Entrepreneurship
Online participation form is available on www.wrohellas.gr, until 31/1/2018.
COSMOTE STEM Initiatives
COSMOTE, the last 4 years, as a strategic partner of Non-Profit Organization of Educational Robotics, Science and Technology WRO Hellas, is implementing a series of initiatives in order to disseminate the STEM (Science – Technology-Engineering–Mathematics) educational method to the Greek educational system. Educational Robotics is based on S.T.E.M educational method. Combining science, mathematics, engineering and technology in building a complete robotic construction-model, it strengthens the ability of children to acquire new skills while it promotes team working and creative thinking.
The actions implemented by the strategic partnership of COSMOTE and WRO Hellas are the National Educational Robotics Competition for Primary school, Junior and Senior High- School Student, as well as the National stages for the World Robot Olympiad, organized by WRO Hellas the last 10 years. Through these stages, the Greek teams participating annually in the World Robot Olympiad™ are selected.
Until now, the students' participations in the educational robotics competitions have exceeded the 5,000, while annually more than 1,000 teachers are participating in the relevant educational workshops.
Moreover, COSMOTE supports the participation of Greek teams in World Robot Olympiad™ and has provided more than 350 educational robotics kits to students' teams from all over the Greece.
The Non-Profit Organization of Educational Robotics, Science and Technology WRO Hellas is the main organizer of robotics educational competitions in Greece and in the broader area of Southeast Europe. WRO Hellas is the official organizer of the World Robot Olympiad – W.R.O. in Greece.
