Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna represents Greece in an International Space Competition

Congratulations to the Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna Robotics Club students who got the 1st place in the CanSat in Greece competition and will represent Greece in the European CanSat Competition of the European Space Agency (ESA)!

This competition is the preliminary of the corresponding European Competition of the European Space Agency (ESA) and it is very demanding due to the complexity of the project and to the strict requirements, demanding a lot of intermediary reports and trials.

For those not familiar with CanSat (Satellite in a Can), it is a high standard competition posing as a main challenge for the student teams to manage to fit all the necessary systems for a satellite, such as the sensors and the communication system, in a very small space, not bigger than a refreshment can. The satellite blasts off to the height of about a kilometer and makes various measurements, such as temperature, pressure, magnetic field tension, and transmits them through radio waves to the base. In the end, it must land with safety, being equipped with a parachute.

The team members are:

  • Leader: Margaritis Christos
  • Parachute: Papanikolaou-Dais Gerasimos, Papatheodorou Aikaterina
  • Data analysis-Findings Presentation: Konidas Christos-Aggelos, Pipis Evangelos, Balatos Dimitrios, Dontas Ioannis
  • Engineering-Electronics: Margaritis Christos, Tsakonas Georgios, Papadopoulos Panagiotis, Fokaidis-Psyllas Athanasios, Kazantzopoulos Konstantinos
  • Software-Programming: Margaritis Christos, Pipis Evangelos, Richard Bariampa, Aggelopoulos Dionysios, Georgakopoulos Elias, Balatos Dimitrios, Bakoli Eleni (from the 3rd High School of Nea Smyrni)
  • Propulsion: Veli Danae, Dontas Ioannis, Protonotariou Eleni
  • Telemetry: Papadopoulos Panagiotis, Richard Bariampa
  • Teacher in charge: Christos D. Fanidis
The team during the award ceremony, accompanied by the president of Nea Smyrni Municipality School Committee, Mr. Alexandros Zavos

We wish students get the 1st place in the European Competition as well!

This competition will be held in Bologna, Italy, between 24/6/2019 and 28/6/2019.

Sustainable development guide for protection of the environment

In the framework of the European Project «Open Schools for Open Societies» where our school participates, with coordinator the Mathematician Ms. Argyri Panagiota, the learning scenario entitled «Sustainable development guide for protection of the environment» opens the doors of our school to real problems.

https://portal.opendiscoveryspace.eu/en/osos_authoring_tool/view/854031/853955

Our students take on the role of a “citizen science” member and they explore many different aspects of the phenomenon of climate change from real data (meteorology, pollutants). They focus on proposing how to reduce carbon dioxide emissions with specific solutions (diet, transport, alternative power plants, etc.). In this context, priority is given to gender equality in role-taking, co-operative games and debates on ethical issues arising from biotechnology.

Open access to the works in the digital community of our school:

This activity will participate in the innovative actions organized by the European School Network (www.eun.org) within the STEM Discovery Week 2019.

Maths Celebration about Arts and Museums

Students of A1 class of Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna with supervisor the Mathematician Ms. Argyri Panagiota succeeded in highlighting the value and role of mathematics through their connection to the world of Art, but also to everyday life itself. Our students have become authors and solvers of mathematical problems, mathematical story makers, designers of three-dimensional digital objects framed by mathematical problems, and finally, their original arts transfer the mathematical knowledge of the curriculum in a particularly innovative way.


The starting point has been the educational visit to the mathematics exhibition “Everything Is Number”, where the beauty of paintings is the subject of study of geometric concepts and problems.


Painting & Geometry Problems


The Museum of Ancient Greek Technology returns to the classroom as students transfer and use their knowledge of the STEM subject on the exhibits to synthesize and solve problems.


Museums of Ancient Technology & Problems of Science


But the same objects of our physical space are framed through original mathematical stories, with mathematical problem-solving.


Finally, novel designs of artifacts and three-dimensional objects validate the creative and active association of Mathematics with Art.


Our students presented their work on Saturday 13/4 at the Mathematical Symposium, organized by and held under the coordination of the mathematical leaders of the Primary and Secondary Education of Attica.


The mathematical celebration opens communication and collaboration paths with students and teachers from other schools.

The mathematical celebration continues with STEM Discovery Week
