Panhellenic Contest 2023

Foreword by the President of WRO Hellas

The big celebration of STEM and Educational Robotics is here! This year marks 17 years in the effort to introduce educational robotics as well as STEM methodology into compulsory education. This year’s Panhellenic Competition is organized for the 9th consecutive year by WRO Hellas with Strategic Partner COSMOTE and is under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Religion.The organization of a major event such as the Panhellenic Educational Robotics Competition requires experience and know-how that WRO Hellas has acquired and offers completely free of charge in terms of participation in the service of the educational community.Through the competition, the introduction of educational robotics, as well as the wider STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) methodology, into the official education system is sought. The Panhellenic Competition is a unique way for young students to understand natural sciences, programming and
automation, learn to think like engineers, develop their problem-solving ability and expand their creativity. During their preparation for the competition, the students, with the guidance of their teachers-coaches:
● form teams (teamwork)
● study the relevant literature and experiment (critical thinking)
● explore the science of engineering (engineer thinking)
● face challenges and propose solutions (problem solving).
By exploring these skills in a hands-on and participatory way, children develop
supplies they need today and for the future, whatever their career choice
and if they follow.
The elements that make up the new competition include the following innovative changes:
● Single theme for all ages
● The introduction of simple machines
● The introduction of measurements in Primary.

Overall, the Panhellenic Competition supports STEM as a methodology for compulsory education and defines the ways in which students will acquire the skills of the 21st century. At the end of the competition, the educational community – from Kindergarten to High School – is invited to participate in the competition to respond to the convergence of Greece with technologically developed countries.Good luck
