Participation of our students in the European Student Parliament on Science

The European Student Parliament on Science is organised by the initiative of the Science Community of Germany «Science in Dialogue» («Wissenschaft im Dialog»). This year’s subject was «The future of mobility» and the Parliament was realised in collaboration with Euroscience Open Forum – ESOF, in Toulouse, France (9-14/7/2018).

Three of Greece representatives in the European Student Parliament on Science were the students of our school 1. Drakoulakou Georgia, 2. Avgerinou Aikaterini, 3. Protonotariou Eleni that were selected in March 2018 with the appropriate procedure.

Here follow photographs of the students’ participation in the European Student Parliament on Science

 

 

and a text by the student Aikaterini Avgerinou on her experience from her participation in the European Student Parliament:

«When starting the B’ High School Class, I took advantage of the opportunity I was offered by my school to participate in after-school clubs among which I also chose the «European Paths in Sciences». My choice was made on the basis of the club content and its interesting activities. The best part of these activities was the participation in the Greek Student Parliament on Science, which was held in Ellinogermaniki Agogi in April 2018. That participation was for us the ticket for our presence in the European Student Parliament on Science, in Toulouse, France in July 2018, on the subject of «The future of mobility». This activity was a unique experience. We had the chance to learn the decision-making procedures of the European Parliament and afterwards to suggest and vote for our own ideas according to these procedures. At the same time, we attended speeches by specialised scientists on the subject under discussion, we met young people from all over Europe and got to know the hospitality of a French university. Our stay in Toulouse was beyond any expectation on all levels. This journey, as a capstone of this after-school club for this school year, wouldn’t have been realised without the encouragement and the scientific support of the teacher in charge of the club Ms. Panagiota Argyri, whom I deeply thank.»

Second place in the Panhellenic Competition CanSat In Greece!

For the second year, the student team of Evangeliki Model High School “Polyclitus” got the second place in the space science competition CanSat In Greece.

 

The students were awarded their prize by the Dean of the Electrical Engineering Department of the National Technical University of Athens, Professor Nektarios Kozyris.

The team members were:

From A’ Class: Margaritis Christos, Pipis Evangelos

From B’ Class: Petropoulakis Michail, Raptopoulos Petros, Konidas Christos Aggelos, Papanikolopoulos Gerasimos, Tsakonas Georgios, Tsakonas Vasileios, Papadopoulos Panagiotis, Fokaidis – Psyllas Athanasios, Soulantikas Georgios.

Team leader was the C’ Class student Charilaos Pipis and supervising teachers Ms. Sofia Gourna and Mr. Christos Fanidis.

This is the second consecutive year that the competition CanSat In Greece was organised. Our last year’s team also got the 2nd place in the same Panhellenic competition for the school year 2016 – 2017 (http://www.corallia.org/el/si-news/si-cluster-news/3804-cansat-in-greece.html).

This year’s team was selected among the 10 that finally participated (https://goo.gl/Rggimd) in the Panhellenic competition 2017 – 2018 among 36 teams that applied on a national level. The selection was made according to the originality of the mission and the feasibility of its realisation in the framework of a student competition.

CanSat In Greece is the national preliminary competition for the participation in the corresponding European competition organised by ESA (European Space Agency).

CanSat  is a space science competition, where the participating teams have to construct an original satellite in the size of a can. This satellite has to be launched at the height of 1000 metres and during its descent, it has to commit a mission that students design and realize on their own, along with a compulsory mission, determined by the organisers.

Both missions focused on data collection by using electronic sensors and their radio-transmission to the base station on the ground. Both the base station and the satellite are controlled by an Arduino microprocessor. The whole design and realization follows the modern teaching approach of STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics).

For the final score, two intermediary controls through a Skype interview with the students, two construction reports and the critics’ final score were taken into consideration.

We thank Abbott Hellas Laboratories, our school Parents and Custodians’ Association and “The Drag Store” company for the construction of the carbon fiber shield.
