For the third straight academic year, SciCo, with the support of the Vodafone Foundation and the academic contribution of Ellinogermaniki Agogi, is bringing the extracurricular STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) educational program to 12-16-year-old students in remote areas of Greece. The goal of the STEMpoweringYouth program is to connect schools with their local communities, cultivating the students’ creative thinking and inspiring them to research problems affecting their community and come up with innovative solutions using science and technology.
Each cycle of the program begins with the training of educators. Our
STEMPowering Youth is an extra-curricular STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) program implemented by the non-for-profit educational organization Scico, with the support of the Vodafone Foundation and the academic contribution of Ellinogermaniki Agogi, since 2017. In each cycle of the program, 13-16 year old students from remote areas of Greece are given the opportunity to obtain new knowledge and skills on topics of science and technology. One of the main goals of the program is to teach the students how to apply their skills and scientific thinking as well as
“STEMPOWERING YOUTH” for a third straight cycle: Meet our new crop of young scientists!
“STEMpowering Youth” is an extracuricullar STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program which has been implemented by Scico in cooperation with Ellinogermaniki Agogi and the support of Vodafone Foundation since 2017. The program’s aim is to bring innovation in school classes of remote Greek areas: In each cycle of the program, 13-16 year-old students are trained with interactive educational tools on topics of Natural Sciences, Astronomy and Programming, and participate in experiments as well as design and
The non-profil educational organisation SciCo organised for the fifth year in a row the unique festival on science and innovation, Athens Science Festival, at Technopolis City of Athens, with 22,000 visitors. Of those, 6,000 were students who were exposed to many interesting scientific activities. During 6 days, the festival hosted 160 research, academic and educational organisations, 115 different interactive events, 48 labs for kids, 23 workshops, 55 speeches and 5 competitions, as well as a series of other events for visitors of all ages!
Particularly charismatic and acclaimed speakers of international
The “STEMpowering Youth” program is implemented in 15 provincial towns since February of 2017, and aims at student empowerment on science topics, with the use of new technologies. In each round of the program, the students are trained with interactive educational tools on Natural Sciences, Astronomy and Programming topics, and they participate in experiential activities and group projects, making constructions.
At the end of each course round, each team creates its own project. Within their project, the students have the opportunity to do research and manufacture a construction in order to
How do chances affect our everyday life? We have produced a video series dedicated to probability theory which hopefully will help you understand the role of chances in making a decision both in the human and in the animal kingdom!

Maths in Motion is a two-year KA2 Erasmus+ project about how to use body movement as a tool to teach Mathematics. The final goal of the project is to create a toolkit of activities that combine music and movement as a tool to teach mathematics and explain basic mathematical concepts.
Maths in Motion is designed and implemented by Olde Vechte Foundation and brought together mathematicians, teachers, dancers and STEM educators from 7 european countries (Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Bulgaria, Italy, Romania and Greece) The non-profit organization “SciCo – Science Communication” represents Maths
The Academy of Ambassadors is aiming to empower the participants’ skills in science
communication, to further develop their professional capacities and to feature them as main
spokespeople of SciCo’s values and goals.
The main goal of the program is for the participants to make them active in their fields of
work by developing their personal and professional skills. So that this can be realized, the
participants should be willing to acknowledge their wishes and desires, their needs and
capacities in order to get to know themselves.
“STEMpowering Youth” is implemented for the previous year in provincial towns, in order to introduce the concept of innovation in the local societies, to train the teachers and to help students develop new skills. In parallel, it encourages experimental design and the construction of innovative applications for the resolution of local problems and issues of everyday life. The laboratories allow the students to discover skills and talents, to obtain hands-on experience on making or processing STEM applications (Science –Technology – Engineering – Mathematics), and get educated via interaction and active
