A creative movement workshop which seeks to acquaint children with the core concepts of Physics through experiential play and improvisation. The concepts the workshops addresses all have a direct link to the work of Takis, in which the Greek sculptor explores electromagnetic forces, wind energy, light, space and other aspects of the natural world. His works are often referred to as kinetic sculptures.
So, with Takis’ works on display in the public space of the SNFCC, our young participants will be transformed into kinetic sculptures, play at being small magnets moved by nature’s ‘invisible’ forces, and travel through the magical world of space through the eyes of the planets.
07/07: Wind energy: We learn about the intensity and direction of the winds.
21/07: Magnetic fields: We learn about the properties of magnetism, attraction-repulsion.
11/08: Solar system: We learn about the gravity and orbit of the planets around the sun.
09/09 States of matter: Through the cycle of water, we learn about the states of matter solid-liquid-gas
Design - Implementation: Aggeliki Dalaggeli, dance teacher / physicist
