Cyprus Computer Society (CCS) organizes the 3rd Cyprus Robotics Competition, Robotex Cyprus in collaboration with the non-profit organization NPO ROBOTEX Estonia (www.robotex.ee/en). Robotex Cyprus is the greatest opportunity for citizens, students, academics, organizations and companies to exhibit their robotics achievements. ZEBRA is a proud sponsor of the event, aiming to support and congratulate the commitment, especially of young people, in driving technological innovation.
Robotex Cyprus 2019 aims to upgrade the educational robotics sector, to introduce robotic technology in the educational process, to upgrade STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) fields and to promote new forms of learning. The event will give the chance to the ordinary citizen to come into direct contact with the technology of robotics. Academics will be able to showcase their research achievements and students to show their robotic development skills. Organizations and businesses have also the chance to stand next to young people and present their own innovative ideas in the field.
Following the strategy of continuous education and development, ZEBRA is well equipped to mentor a group of students in their attempt to implement their ideas in robotics. As a well-respected IT Company, ZEBRA supports the idea of bringing technology into learning. We strongly believe in the future generation and its evolvement and therefore it’s our responsibility to provide young people the space and support to produce their innovative projects.
The challenges which will be conducted within the framework of the event are: ROBOTICS4ALL, Folkrace, Colour Picking, Line Following, SUMO (LEGO & MINI SUMO), Maze Solving, Enhanced Line Following and Educational Robotics (LEGO WeDO & ENGINO MINI). Visitors of the event will have the chance to see the exhibition and discuss with us as well as other participants / coachers of the projects.
The event will be held on 29 and 30 June 2019 at the Sports Center of the University of Cyprus. Registrations to participate in the event will only be made via the website www.robotex.org.cy.
