At the Miskolc regional competition teams “Izidumbu Robotics” from AKG and “Ninjago” of Bodrogkeresztúr’s Eötvös József Elementary School can go through to the national final at the end of February.
The aim of the competition is to give young people the opportunity to learn technical and scientific knowledge in a playful way. Participants learn about programming, robots, artificial intelligence, and other skills such as time management, collaboration and effective communication. The activities provide opportunities for free experimentation, develop young people's critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills through activities that build future competences.
"The future does not belong to robots, but to those who build and program them. By organising this competition, we want to help young people in the region to learn about and acquire the tools, solutions and competences that will shape the future. At Bosch, we believe it is important for the next generation to be part of innovation now, and for future colleagues to be open and prepared when the time comes for them to start work," said László Fükő, general manager of Robert Bosch Power Tool Kft. in Miskolc, which organised the regional qualifying competition.
One of Bosch's core values is to nurture talent. As a major industrial player in the region, the Miskolc power tool plant takes responsibility for the professional orientation of children and the development of future competences. It participates in dual education, so students of vocational training schools from Miskolc also learn at the Bosch power tool plant in jointly run workshops. The company also welcomes young people to its apprenticeship programme.
The Bosch power tool plant in Miskolc was not only an organisor of the regional final but will also assess how it can support schools and start-up teams in the region with professional knowledge and tools to get more students interested in STEM topics and careers.
