“Shaping our future” is the theme this year for the Athens Science Festival 2017.
For a 3rd year in a row, LACAE will participate in the Technopolis event from 29th March to the 2nd of April 2017. You can find us there on Wednesday – Friday from 09:00 till 14:00 and Saturday – Sunday from 11:00 to 16:00.
The LACAE team, ‘meteorologists in action’, has prepared spectacular experiments that will give you the chance to create a tornado into a bottle, inflate balloons without getting tired, make your own clouds and realize the greenhouse effect by using simple materials. You will also have the opportunity to become a meteorologist, forecasting the weather for the following day and of course play many Meteo-games where the winner is decided by the weather.
Visitors wondering about satellites and earth observation, how they impact our lives and the way they shape our future, will have the chance to answer their questions and find out what the European Union through the Copernicus programme offers to the European citizens. LACAE people, members of CAN-HelP (Copernicus Academy Network of Hellenic Partners) will present how Copernicus satellites (Sentinels 1-6) provide free and open data and services that improve the quality of our life.
We welcome you to come interact, play, learn and get to know us!
