The Panhellenic Educational Robotics Competition 2023 has three categories for Primary School students:

The Open Elementary Category is now divided into two age groups:

  1. First grades of elementary school (A’ – D’) Evolve my City with simple machines
  2. Last grades of elementary school (3rd – 6th) Smart Cities
  • “Football 2×2” category, for 1st – 4th grade students
  • Parallel Category of 5th Elementary – 3rd Junior High School Simple Machines

The purpose of Elementary is for students to develop their ability to actively participate in groups by taking on specific roles, become familiar with the problem-solving process, and explore hands-on the concepts of engineering and algorithmic thinking related to building and programming robotics structures, using MIT’s free Scratch software. In this way, the competition familiarizes students with the fundamental chapter of “simple machines”, thus enriching the teaching objectives of the Curriculum.

Open Elementary Category “Evolve my city with simple machines” | 1st – 4th grade

From prehistoric times, people formed themselves into small societies, creating the first cities. There are
cities with a history of thousands of years, developed either gradually or abruptly, plundered, destroyed and rebuilt. In many regions of our country, many historical versions of the city coexist and the ancient part is harmoniously integrated into the modern one.

Objective – Themes

Your team needs to work on a project with at least 3 mechanisms that use simple machines and an electric motor connected to the battery case described in the equipment materials.

Because this category does not include the use of automation, students’ projects should provide solutions outside the logic of “smart cities”. Goal 11 of UNESCO’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals for green and sustainable cities.

More specifically for the planning1 of a sustainable city
social, economic,
environmental effects, the living conditions of
citizens and their symbiosis with its flora and fauna
area. Finally, this design should not be lacking
from future generations to have the opportunity to continue
this effort.
The infrastructure of cities, such as buildings, utility networks (electricity, water,
telecommunications, drainage), security, public transport, the network
cycle paths and pedestrian paths, wellness and recreation areas are issues that you can
study and represent. Quality education (UNESCO goal 4) is present
through school, libraries and local museums.

Your Mechanisms should be applications and solve an existing problem in one
or more of the above UNESCO goals (3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 12 and 13) for sustainable
development especially in urban centers.
Goal 17 for the cooperation of all of us (state and citizens) is important to achieve
understood by the children and can be seen in the solution they will propose.

Open Elementary class “Develop my city with simple machines” | 1st – 4th grade

Speaker: Michalis Bakaloglou

Date and time: 14/11/22 at 18:00

Open Elementary category “Smart cities” | 3rd – 6th grade

 

One of the long-term goals of the Competition is to leave its mark on robotics and STEM among the young participants, so that they will have recruits when later in their adult lives they are called upon to face similar problems in their real dimensions. This targeting is manifested in the selection of the Competition topics. So the combination of the desire to leave a mark with the topics being authentic and interesting for children, has led to choices that raise children’s awareness of issues critical to our country and planet, such as: 

  • το 2015, “My own city”,  
  • το 2016, “Our Galaxy”, 
  • το 2017, “Vehicles and transport of tomorrow”,  
  • το 2018, “Aegean Archipelago: Technology helps develop the islands”, 
  • το 2019, “Colonization on Mars”, 
  • το 2020 & το 2021 “From Archimedes to Da Vinci”
  • το 2022 “The primary sector of agricultural production

Parallel Elementary School Category “Football 2×2”

“Football 2×2” is aimed at students of Grades 3rd-4th of Elementary School. In this game, 2 opposing alliances consisting of 2 remote-controlled robots each chase a ball, on a specially designed table (soccer field). The goal of each alliance is to win the game by scoring more goals than their opponents.
