Welcome to SNFCC Class!

The school lessons of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center land in the classroom!
Discover courses on education, culture and sustainability, specifically designed for each grade level.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) seeks to actively participate in school life and is always looking for new ways to inspire and engage with students and teachers. Thus, the SNFCC Class was created; an educational platform that enables teachers to select integrated school curricula in digital form and implement them in their own classroom.

All of our school programs are specially designed to complement the curriculum of each level of primary and secondary education, enriching the teaching process in a way that’s both educational and entertaining.

With a focus on flexibility, SNFCC Class allows teachers to enrol in their chosen school curricula and present them over a period of three weeks, setting the schedule that best suits their classroom.

After the completion of each school program, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

Register on class.snfcc.org and teach the program of your choice.

 

Description of programs

The climate is changing

With the help of experiments, research and meteorological stations, students discover the consequences of the greenhouse effect, how man has impacted the global and local climate and how the use of renewable energy sources has evolved.

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the concept of climate change and the principles of bioclimatic planning as they are applied at the SNFCC.

Are you ready to explore it?

What are the parts of a plant? Who are the plant’s friends and enemies? What does a gardener do? What kind of vegetables can we find in a Vegetable Garden each season? What is a Mediterranean Garden in an urban park and how can we plant one for ourselves?

Little Gardeners, Landscape Architects, Naturalists and Researchers are invited to participate to an online "promenade" in the Stavros Niarchos Park while, through research games, study, riddles, video and quizzes, they discover the answers!

Time capsule for Heroes
in modern Greek art

For students from Grades 3-8

Time capsules carry stories from the past that are worth remembering into the future. The tales of our heroes, for example.

This course explores the meaning of HERO, yesterday and today, through the multifaceted prism of Art. Starting with some of the most representative works of Greek art from the collection of the National Gallery, and over a period of about 200 years, students are asked to identify heroes in works of art from different periods, in order to ultimately decide what defines a hero.

Scenario / Design: Very Young Contemporary Art

We warmly thank the National Gallery - Alexandros Soutsos Museum for the cooperation and the distribution of the works.
