Greek delegates show their project in a online conference

The Greek teaching project "Oh that gravitiy" was presented online at the 11th Panhellenic Conference “Science in Early Childhood Education” (6th to 8th November 2020) organized by the University of Ioannina. It shows how preschool teachers can make the concept of gravity more understandable for kindergarten children. This project was also shown at the European Science on Stage festival 2019 in Cascais. 

In this conference the teachers Angeliki, Giannis and Evangelia shared useful methods, material and their classroom experiences.

Once again, SonS was the “bridge” so that science doesn’t get trapped in the school laboratory. A “bridge” that helps teachers to spread knowledge to younger and older students and teachers of different levels.

Greek delegation for #SonS2019 received by the Greek President

The 11th European Science on Stage festival took place from 31 October to 3 November 2019 in Cascais, Portugal, at the Estoril Congress Center. At the largest European educational fair for STEM teachers around 450 primary and secondary school teachers from over 30 countries came together to exchange best practice teaching concepts. Teachers from Greece also participated successfully in the event. They made contacts, presented their great teaching ideas and two of them, Michalis Orfanakis and Mikis Mylonakis, even won the European STEM teacher award. 

And now, the President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr. Prokopios Pavlopoulos, met on December 7, 2019 with the members of the Greek delegation at the Presidential Palace. The President congratulated the teachers for their successful presence at the festival.

In his greeting, the President has said, among other things, the following: "I ​​congratulate you on the great distinctions that were bestowed upon you at the 11th European Science on Stage Festival under the motto 'Skills for the Future'. I also want to tell you that what matters even more - and I congratulate you even more on this - is that you take part in this Initiative which is of immense importance, going far beyond the borders of our country, and is a pan-European initiative, as you know better than I. I congratulate you that through this Initiative, you, the Primary and Secondary Education Teachers, are engaged in the teaching related to the education of students in the field of Natural Sciences through the Laboratory. In this way you attract young people to the field of Natural Sciences, widening their horizons and helping them to understand the value of Science and, at the same time, teach them the great importance of Technology."

What an honor!

Greece: Workshops on festival projects at Athens

From 2-3 April 2016 the Laboratory Centre of Physical Sciences of Aigaleo organised a teacher training in the Auditorium of the 4th High School of Aigaleo in Athens. The participants  were 100 teachers from all over the country, 50 students and general public. Many projects of the Greek delegation presented at the European Science on Stage festival 2015 in London were introduced to the interested audience, such as 'The Optical System of the Human Eye' from Antonis Margaritis and George Marakis (Model Experimental General Lyceum of Heraklion, Crete), 'Was Velazquez a good science student?' from Angeliki Samanta (27th Primary School of Acharnes), 'Study, design and construction of a Remotely Operated underwater Vehicle. (R.O.V.)' from Petros Poutos and Paraskevas Andrianos (1st Vocational Lyceum of Salamis Island) and many more.

Furthermore Eugenia Tsitopoulou – Christodoulides, Head of the Laboratory Centre of Physical Sciences of Aigaleo, Athens, and Greek coordinator of 'Science on Stage - Europe' presented the network and its acitivities to the attendees and announced the main Greek Science on Stage festival, the '9th Hellenic Games of Construction and Science Experiments' under the theme 'Inventing the future of Science Education' from 11-12 November 2016 in the premises of  'Laboratory Centre of Physical Sciences of Aigaleo' in Athens'. At this event also the Greek delegates for the European Science on Stage festival 2017 in Debrecen, Hungary will be chosen.

A further part of the event was the award ceremony for all students that participated in the 2015 European competition 'Be a Cassini Scientist for a day' that has been supervised for Greece by Eugenia Tsitopoulou – Christodoulides. The competition was organised by ESA (European Space Agency) to all ESA Member States and ESA Cooperating States, namely: Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Spain, and Sweden. 

Also there were presented lectures on the highlights of science, such as 'Gravitational radiation' from Costas Christodoulides (Professor Emeritus, Department of Physics, School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences, National Technical University of Athens), 'Utilizing T cells to fight cancer' from Ourania Tsitsilonis (Associate Professor in Immunology Department of Animal and Human Physiology, Faculty of Biology, National Kapodistrian University of Athens) and many more.

Greece-Romania: New joint project about experimental physics

From 2 to 6 February Laszlo Papp from the Scoala Gimnaziala in Romania visited Panagiotis Lazos at the 26th Senior High School of Athens-Marasleio in Greece. There he presented four experiments to about 25 students that also got involved in explaining the observed phenomena. Afterwards the students performed the experiments on their own, showing devices that they constructed for different activities. 

Laszlo Papp and Panagiotis Lazos now want to continue the eTwinning project that they initiated a few months ago and agreed to prepare a joint project about experimental physics and sciences for the next European Science on Stage festival 2017 in Hungary. The eTwinning platform will be a useful tool in synchronizing the activities between the two schools and to present new ideas and activities. In a next step, Panagiotis Lazos will visit Laszlo Papp in Romania for further collaboration.  

Both teachers have attended the Science on Stage festival 2015 in London.

The teacher exchange is a follow-up activity of the European Science on Stage festival.
