06 Jul Team Greece 2020 🇬🇷
The Team Greece was founded in 2018 with the aim of broadening the horizons of children in Greece dealing with robotics, programming and engineering. Eduact sent an open invitation in April 2018 to sign up for as many kids as they wanted and so the team was created. A selection of 10 children from all over Greece along with their 2 coaches and mentors began preparing for the Mexico Olympics in the summer of 2018. After the Olympics, the team members organized and held many activities, presentations and workshops for children, as the FIRST Global Challenge Team Greece’s goal is to promote STEM and FIRST Core Values, to recruit more young students passionate for learning, fun and success through robotics programmes. In October 2019, the team represented Greece at the 2019 FIRST Global Challenge held in Dubai, UAE (24-27/10/2019) and won the Bronze Medal for Robot Engineering and 6th place out of 192 nations in the World General Ranking.
