Spreading the news of Copernicus EO programme in Kythera schools and Radio

LACAE had the pleasure to travel to the remote island of Kythira on 18-20 December 2017 and participate in the science festival dedicated to space & astronomy, organized by the National Observatory of Athens and the Municipality of Kythira.

During this three-day event, the students of Kythera high school and lyceum had the opportunity to learn about the world of artificial satellites and get introduced to the recent advancements in Earth Observation.

The educational program excited both students and teachers based on the feedback we received. Requests were made for more similar events and for the development of related educational material in the Greek language. At the end, the local radio station “Tsirigo FM” invited us for more science talks.

We thank all the Kytherians for the huge interest!
