Competitive Educational Robotics Club
In the Robotics Club, students learn to construct and program a robot, utilizing the equipment of our school’s Computer Lab. Educational robotics is an activity which, with the vision of technological innovation, helps students to discover talents and skills, to work collaboratively and to become familiar with technology, automation and robotics. The ultimate aim of the club is to prepare students to take part in the Panhellenic Robotics Competition (http://wrohellas.gr/) which takes place every year with the participation of schools from all around Greece. Winners in this competition by level (Elementary, Gymnasium, Lyceum, Open) represent our country at the Robotics Olympiad (http://www.wroboto.org/). In the Club, students are divided into teams of 2 or 3 members. Each team is called upon to construct a robot using different materials and robotic / automatic control computer systems (LEGO Mindstorms EV3, arduino, raspberry pi, microbit, Makeblock). Then, they program their construction so that it completes required tasks – tests. The required equipment is provided by the College.
During the 2017-18 school year, the Rest in PC’s team, which consisted of B Lyceum students and members of the Pierce Robotics Club, Michael-Angelos Gouvelis, George Sazaklis and Kyriakos Stratakos, achieved 1st place in the final round of the Educational Robotics Olympiad WRO™ 2018, representing Pierce and Greece at the Robotics Olympiad and achieved 4th place worldwide!
