Copernicus EO at “Planet Technopolis” , the science festival for kids

On the weekend of September 21 & 22, 2019, LACAE, participated in the science festival for kids “P100 – Planet Technopolis” of the Municipality of Athens that managed to land over 6000 children and parents on …. another planet

During our workshop “Teach with Satellites”, children and parents had the opportunity to learn how Copernicus satellites, monitor earth from space and help us deal with forest fires, floods and other natural disasters. Specifically, we implemented a series of educational activities among which the “MaFiS” hands-on educational activity  for mapping of burned areas, which was developed in the framework of the doctoral dissertation of our associate Yota Assimakopoulou.

We thank the participating children and their parents for the success of the workshop and their encouraging comments !!
