Nefeli was born in Ioannina. She is 18 years old and has been studying in Athens at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the NTUA (National & Technical University of Athens). She is interested in robotics and coding, as her field of study suggests, and in the future she would like to address them as well as their applications in biomedical science. She loves team spirit and meeting people with the same interests. Having participated as a referee at Fll and volunteer at Fll jr she really enjoyed the atmosphere of the event and the people involved.
Dimitra is a second-year student at 1st High School of Voula. She is interested in Robotics, Dancing and Playacting. She likes Robotics because it combines engineering, programming and construction. When she grows up, she wants to become an architect or engineer. Programming and robotics is something newer to her than construction. Being part of Team Greece is a tremendous opportunity for her to do what she loves (robotics) and exchange experiences and high-level knowledge with others.
George is a second-year student at 1st Lyceum of Voula. George’s engaging in robotics has begun in a very young age. Both immense childhood curiosity and absolute satisfaction with creativity have prompted him to work for hours on how to build a machine that will do what he asks and do it as efficiently as possible. He believes robotics is the science of the future! FIRST Global challenge is a giant step in the direction of his dream becoming a reality!
Εirini is 16 years old. She loves physics, biology, chemistry and her goal is to be enrolled in a University of Biology. Eirini, her father & her brother have built a humanoid, natural-dimensional, completely 3D-printed, full functional robot that they often present to schools and educational institutions.
She is excited to take part in the First Global Challenge because it would be a great experience, she will get the chance to spent her summer learning new things and advancing her knowledge in robotics, meet new people and collaborate.
Vasilis is a second-year student at 1st High School of Gerakas. He likes building things with different materials, he fancies robotic constructions, he likes music and handball. Robotics fascinate him; his goal is to continue and make robotics his profession and hobby. Participating in FIRST Global Team Greece, will help him expand his knowledge, improve his skills and engage in new ideas. He believes that the renewable energy project will provide solutions that will help all of us for a better future.
Menelaos is a second grade student at "Fryganiotis" school. He considers FIRST Global to be a unique experience that will give him the opportunity to demonstrate his knowledge in robotics, a science field he loves very much and on which he began to work since the age of nine. Apart from his particular vocation in the positive sciences, he can be distinguished by the seriousness, team spirit and cooperation skills.
The one and only, extraordinary, fabulous GRoot_bot!!! He is only 2 months old but he keeps amazing us every day!
Apostolos is a second-year student at the 1st General Lyceum of Xanthi. He is passionate about construction since he was young and he always kept in mind that this love can be translated into more thorough work. Participating in various competitions, his manufacturing skills improved dramatically. He is also regarded top level at handling the robot, having developed the ideal relationship between himself and the particular controller because of the video games and the other robots he has used.
Michael is a first-year student at 2nd Lyceum of Kalyvia. As a student, he is passionate, he displays great adaptability, organization skills, respect and dedication to the principles and goals of the team. He contributes to the design, development and implementation of the entire Project; he possesses high level of knowledge of robotics, software design (Adobe Illustrator), image editing software (Adobe Photoshop), designing and creating web pages.
George is third year student at Junior High Delasalle. He has an interest on technology and automation and wants to show the world the things he is capable of doing. He also wants to participate in a team and cooperate with other people to create Robotics and succeed through the things they would develop, to show the world something different from what already exists. He feels excited having the opportunity to work with the FGC team.
