Exploring SNFCC: Walking in the Sun - Εικόνα

For kindergarten, primary school and first grade of middle school students

Students begin their self-guided exploration from the Agora and they wander through different SNFCC areas and the Stavros Niarchos Park before reaching your final destination; the SNFCC Lighthouse.

The count down begins when students open the School Bag: "Walking in the Sun” and reveal the SNFCC map and all useful material for their tour in the SNFCC external premises. It’s time for exploration!

In an open and sunny place, such as the SNFCC and the Stavros Niarchos Park in particular, students discover everything about Sun and its impact on our life. They measure the temperature of multiple objects with special equipment, and they understand the meaning of orientation and how it is defined by the presence and direction of the Sun. Students play with light and shadow, creating shapes and forms that inspire them to craft their own "stories of the Sun". They understand the concept of evaporation, and the importance of solar energy for the SNFCC canopy, our city and our lives.

It is recommended that the program takes place in morning hours due to favorable weather conditions (sunny day and relevantly low temperatures) that enable the smooth realization of activities.
