Over the course of the two-day event, hundreds of visitors, including parents, relatives, friends of the competitors, and technology enthusiasts, enjoyed exciting robotic battles and exhibitions of robotic constructions. On Saturday, July 1st, the robots navigated Line Following tracks and participated in the FOLKRACE rally, while also attempting to find their way through a maze.

On Sunday, July 2nd, the robots engaged in battles on the SUMO field, which included the brand-new 3 kg challenge. Additionally, the event featured a GIRLS FIRE-FIGHTING competition exclusively for girls, aimed at inspiring more females to pursue careers in the STEAM fields.

Visitors had the opportunity to experience drone flights presented by teachers and students from the Regional Agricultural, Technical and Vocational School of Education and Training of Famagusta/Avgorou.

There were also interactive booths where visitors enjoyed 3D printing demonstrations by, technological projects by Youth Makerspace Larnaca, prize draws by Engino, sweet surprises from IET Cyprus and Christels Designs, and other technological creations. The opening of the event was musically accompanied by drummer Yagos Pavlou from the Music Club of the University of Cyprus, while on Sunday at noon, 40 dancers from the Elena Clark School of Dance performed, offering a nice break to the intensive robotics program.

Robotex Cyprus 2023 was organized by the Cyprus Computer Society in collaboration with the University of Cyprus, the Youth Board, and IET Cyprus as co-organizers.
