5th Student Robotics Festival
A CELEBRATION OF ROBOTICS, VOLUNTEERISM, AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES
The Experimental Junior High School of the University of Macedonia is organizing the 5th Student Robotics Festival on Saturday 15 December 2018. This innovative event is held in cooperation with educational institutions (the Regional Directorate of Primary and Secondary Education of Central Macedonia, the State School Coordinators for ICT in Central Macedonia, the Directorate of Secondary Education of Western Thessaloniki, members of the teaching staff from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the University of Macedonia) and the local authorities (Municipality of Neapolis-Sykies). In a spirit of healthy competition, exchange of ideas, creativity, innovation, friendship, and joy, the 5th Student Robotics Festival (SRF5) is expected to bring together schools from around Greece and across Europe.
SRF5 is held under the aegis and the permission of the Administrative Committee of Model and Experimental Schools. First held in 2013, the event has steadily grown to become Greece’s major non-profit robotics meeting thanks to sponsorships and the volunteers that support it. The event is twofold, offering participants the opportunity to compete against each other or exhibit their ideas live in the exhibition room or through videos and/or presentations. Allowing participants to use their own equipment, SRF5 is once more going to encourage the robotics teams to rely on creativity, cooperation, and innovation to carry out the tasks set by the Organizing and the Scientific Committees supervising the competition. The implementation of an open and clean marking system safeguards that all teams are treated fairly and that awards will be presented to the best teams in the competition as well as the exhibition.
If you are running a robotics club/class and would like to encourage your students to present their work to their peers across Europe while, at the same time, claiming an award for their hard work, the Organizing Committee of the 5th Student Robotics Festival would be delighted to display your creations in our exhibition room (through a video and/or presentation) or even welcome you personally to participate in our competition. Just visit our website at mfr.peiramak.gr. We will be happy to assist you in any way possible and make your participation in our event as smooth as it can be.
