ERC=Science² : Stories of current scientific research

From June 27 to July 5, Ellinogermaniki Agogi organised a series of events under the framework of the European Project ERC=Science² with the collaboration of the National Documentation Centre, the Athens Conservatoire, and WRO Hellas.

Travelling from the premises of the Ellinogermaniki Agogi school, the ERC=Science² stand went to Galatsi Olympic Stadium, at the WRO 2018 Educational Robotics Olympiad finals, and later on to the garden of the National Hellenic Research Foundation.

More than 1500 people visited the project's travelling stand and learned about the relationship of science with the senses and with music.

As part of the activities, a Science Café with Haris Xanthoudakis, professor of the Ionian University and Director of the Athens Conservatoire Center for Research and Documentation, took place on June 27 at Ellinogermaniki Agogi and was attended by teenagers aged 13-18.

An inspiring speech on science and music was also given on July 6 to 30 teachers of the summer school of the iMuSciCA project by researcher and ERC grantee Xavier Serra, from the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona.

During these events, students, teachers, researchers, and families learned about the stories of modern scientific research funded by the European Research Council.
