EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN

  • SNFCC Garden for Toddlers

Design-Implementation: Kalliopi Koutroumpi, museologist – museum educator

Preschool children

Duration: 75

Inspired by Friedrich Froebel’s pedagogy, the SNFCC garden for toddlers is structured around 3 sections: (1) architectural synthesis games, (2) action games and (3) gardening. For that purpose, we propose activities which enhance the kids' senses and help them to recognize and recompose well-known natural patterns and forms. Having their senses as their primary guide, kids will discover the Stavros Niarchos Park and by using wood-made toys, they will create shapes of inspired by the everyday life, their knowledge and their imagination. At the same time, the kids experience in an amusing way the concepts of architectural synthesis and cosmic creativity.

  • The SNFCC Little Gardeners

Design-Implementation: Kalliopi Koutroumpi, museologist – museum educator

Preschool children, schoo 1st and 2nd grade

Duration: 75- 90’

What is a Park and how is it created? Which vegetables live in the Stavros Niarchos Park and how do they spend their day? What do they eat and how do they feel when a person, a dog or a butterfly approaches them? This educational program provides an introduction to the Park’s flora and life. Αt the same time it seeks to raise awareness among kids about the importance of green spaces within the urban landscape and familiarize them with the concept of sustainability. 

 

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

  • SNFCC and 19 more letters!

Design-Implementation: Kalliopi Koutroumpi, museologist – museum educator

1st and 2nd grade children at the elementary school

Duration: 90’

How many letters form the “SNFCC” acronym? What is its meaning? Taking as a starting point the SNFCC’s acronym, kids will explore the SNFCC premises having the alphabet as a guide! Through tactile games, observation remarks andcollaborative activities, the students become explorers while tracking down and collecting words, that help them conceive the vision of the project. Thus, they become the SNFCC “letter-collectors” and collectively compose their own SNFCC alphabet!

 

  • Marathon at the SNFCC

Design-Implementation: Kalliopi Koutroumpi, museologist – museum educator

Elementary school 3rdto 6th grade

Duration: 90’

Put on your sports suit, bring your towel and a bottle of water and get ready for a marathon tour around the impressive facilities of the SNFCC. Departing from the “Bréal Cup”, the kids begin a “marathon” at the SNFCC and let their body and senses guide them around its most interesting and beautiful corners. The kids collaborate to achieve set missions and reflect on values such as: freedom, discipline, self-control, cooperation, speed and stamina.

 

  • NaturePower

Design-Implementation: Kalliopi Koutroumpi, museologist – museum educator

Elementary school  3rd to  6th grade children

Duration: 90’

What does a  “Green Building” possibly mean and why could one say that the SNFCC is 'fed on nature'? Through research games, mathematical riddles, experiments and role playing, the kids will discover the technology and basic function of the Energy Canopy, the Green Roofs” and the sprinkling tanks. Accordingly, attention will be given to the vision and philosophy behind the sustainability of the project.

 

  • Athletic Paths at the Stavros Niarchos Park

Design-Implementation: Regeneration & Progress

Elementary School Students

 Duration: 90'

Enhance your physical skills and experience different sports while having fun. Speed, strength, and reflex combined with the right basic moves' execution will help you become better aware of your body and as such choose the sport that suits you best.

The program aims at students' contact with movement and its benefits, through a multi-faceted motor learning and the specification of the body's composition.

Given that it is an athletic activity, it is suggested that students wear athletic clothes and shoes, while a document of parent consent is necessary for participation.

 

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR SECONDARY EDUCATION

  • Solar energy and a world in constant movement

Design-Implementation: STEM education

 Junior and senior high school students

 Duration: 90'

 

Why the water, the sun, and the wind are considered sources of energy? How can the orders for a machine's movement be given? Why do the Sun and the Moon move in the sky? Why do the winds blow and how do the rivers flow?

Nature, the natural environment, machines, movement, solar energy, conversion of energy's form, means of mechanical energy's transmission.

Students are called upon to exlpore the above, while creating their own mechanical constructions, which are real machines' simulations.

 

  • At the threshold of Architecture

Design-Implementation: Christina Tsinisizeli, Astist

Junior and senior high school students

Duration: 90’

During this lab, junior and senior high school students have a chance to participate in a real construction model lab. The main purpose of this lab focuses on familiarizing the students with key architectural concepts by giving form to their own ideas regarding the model design. Through the inspiration provided by GNO, NLG, the Canal and the Stavros Niarchos Park, students are invited to experiment with the basic architectural tools, such as the building materials, the design scales and the use of shapes, in order to learn how an idea can be realized on paper (2D) or on a model (3D).
