In case you haven’t heard, the Moon is trending again… and in a big way. Like in the glory days of the 1960s and 1970s, our big white space neighbor is enjoying the attention of lunar explorers. Only this time, they’re going back to the moon for good.
The educational Google Lunar XPRIZE fulldome planetarium show, Back To The Moon For Good, chronicles teams around the world competing for the largest incentivized prize in history, by landing a robotic spacecraft on the Moon for the first time in more than 40 years.
Sunday Educational Programmes
Every Sunday morning Hellenic Cosmos hosts educational programmes for children 5 to 12 years old, which are designed and implemented by FHW's special museum educators.
Taking as their starting point the ancient Greek world, mythology, art, fairy tales and many other issues these programmes aim at promoting communication and creativity in an entertaining way. Nature and contemporary everyday life are the inspiration for yet another cycle of educational programmes which wish to increase the public's awareness of issues, such as the weather, time, being different, recycling.
Through discussions, games and various constructions, as well as audiovisual stimuli, and most of all, through the children’s active participation, the programmes activate their imagination and creativity.
