Information Technology – Robotics

[wpo_block_heading title=”Information Technology “]
The course of Computer Science and Programming in Secondary Education is taught as an autonomous subject in both Gymnasium and General Lyceum until the 3rd Lyceum – 5th Field: Economics and Informatics.
The main objective of the ICT course is to enable students to use modern digital technologies, communication tools and network services to find, manage, integrate and evaluate various information, to solve problems and to participate in the modern society of knowledge. Also, a key factor is the active participation of each student, the continuous interaction and collaboration with the teacher and among classmates.
 The teaching of Informatics at the Gymnasium has a clear laboratory orientation, which is why the Informatics Laboratory is a place of study, research, creative participation and collaboration for students to encourage cooperative learning, self-motivation and creativity.
 We also pay special attention to issues related to the Internet and its safe use by our students.

The Robotics Group has the ultimate goal of bringing students in contact with an industry that has grown in recent years. First of all, children  can have fun, but also come in contact with laws of Physics and Engineering for the first time, by creating structures that exist all around usand could prove to be useful tools of our everyday life in the future. Also, students are encouraged to think so they can find creative solutions to problems, and then develop them through a selection, construction, testing, and evaluation process. Finally, children are able not only to create, but also to program their constructions, in order to execute specific commands.
The robotics group has been participating since 2015 in the regional and national competition organized by WRO Hellas (Organization for Educational Robotics, Science & Technology) with success and many distinctions.
