April 29, 2023
in collaboration with the non-profit organizations Mathisi Initiative
based on the middle-school racecar program miniRACECAR created by the Beaver Works Summer Institute (BWSI) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
The 2nd Panhellenic Gymnasio Robotics competition Racecar Challenge, is a competition based on the miniRacecar course created by the Beaver Works Summer Institute (BWSI) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Mathisi Initiative is non-profit organization and member of MIT JWEL, and this program is the result of the collaboration between Mathisi Initiative and BWSI, and between Mathisi Initiative and Pierce.
Students in Greece who will have attended online BWSI’s autonomous racecar course miniRacecar during the 2022-2023 school year and meet its completion requirement, will compete in a hybrid competition which will be held at Pierce on April 29, 2023. Students who meet miniRacecar completion requirement by July 31, 2023 will receive a certificate of completion from BWSI. The winner of the 2nd Racecar Challenge will qualify to represent Greece in BWSI’s final racecar competition in the summer 2023 on MIT’s campus, and to attend the last week of BWSI’s program immediately preceding the final challenge, also on MIT campus, subject to pandemic-related restrictions if in place then. It will also receive a free car-kit to participate in BWSI’s final competition.
The team that will be distinguished in the Greek competition, along with its accompanying teacher, will have the opportunity to represent Greece in the international competition that will be held at the Beaver Works Summer Institute at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the USA in the summer 2023. The selected team that will participate in the international competition will have the additional opportunity to attend the program of the last week of BWSI’s summer camp on its premises before the final competition. BWSI’s on-campus invitation is subject to pandemic-related restrictions, at BWSI’s discretion.
