The HSC at the Athens Science Festival 

The Hellenic Space Center participates in the year’s Athens Science Festival, which will be hosted in the Technopolis of the City of Athens, between April 16 and 21.  

The Outreach and Education Team of the HSC organizes a workshop for children, called “Astronaut Academy”, which will be held on Wednesday, April 17th, at 11:00-11:45 and 12:00-12:45, in the INNOVATHENS facility.  

Workshop description:  

Children will learn in an interactive way about the peculiarities and difficulties of the daily life of astronauts as they hover above Earth in a spacecraft. At the same time, they learn about the purpose and operation of the International Space Station, but also become astronauts for a while as they are confronted with a real orienteering challenge. Finally, they take part in a fun quiz, completing their training!  

A ticket purchase is required for entering the Festival, through the platform.
