The Cyprus Computer Society is organizing the 2nd National Robotics Competition ROBOTEX Cyprus 2018. Robotex International is an annual event and the biggest robotics festival on the planet. Thousands of engineers, executives, students and families come together to be inspired, build robots for various challenges and learn.

ROBOTEX CYPRUS18 will take place on 23-24 June 2018, at the Sports Center of the University of Cyprus. The event is co-organized by the Youth Board of Cyprus and the University of Cyprus and is under the auspices of the Cyprus Digital Champion. The Cyprus Telecommunications Authority is the competition’s Strategic Partner, while the Bank of Cyprus has the role of the Youth Supporter.

A press conference was held on 19 April, to inform all media and present the details of this year’s competition. The Contest is addressed to primary and secondary school students as well as university students and adults and participation is free of charge. The participating groups will be creating robots using the ENGINO, LEGO, EDISON and ARDUINO platforms to take part in the various challenges while the winners will also be able to participate at the ROBOTEX International 2018 which will take place in Estonia from 30 November to 2 December 2018.

Challenges such as a robot (SUMO) duel and maze robot exit (MAZE) as well as the educational robotics of primary school children are expected to appeal not only to young contestants but also their friends and families who will attend to support them. Already, there are several entries that promise to present an excellent and interesting show.

The organisers would also like to thank the Gold Sponsors ENGINO and UCMAS, as well as, the Silver Sponsors IET-Cyprus Local Network and ECDL for their support.
