Eugenides Foundation

Communicating and teaching science to everyone, from children to the elderly

We are today the most important science centre in Greece. We are based in Athens, and our mission is to encourage science communication and learning, and to do this, we implement an all-year round outreach program in the field of science, technology, and society. We were established in 1956 as a non-profit-making legal entity to fulfill the wishes of the late Eugenios Eugenides, a benefactor of the Greek nation.

What we do


We will develop the engineering course and will coordinate the whole liaison with mass media at partner level. We bring into the consortium methodological expertise in problem-solving and processes of knowledge-building-and-sharing, and a strong tie with local schools and stakeholders.


Our foundation takes pride of the many ventures taken so far across the globe with the common goal of sharing science and particularly engineering among students of all ages.


A European project where museum specialists and school teachers developed 10 engineering challenges for elementary/primary pupils. Challenges included building a glider to carry messages between friends or a plant watering system.

Based on the SeaPearch program developed by MIT Professors Thomas Consi & Chris Chryssostomides, this activity is inspired by the book "How to Build an Underwater Robot," by Harry Bohm and Vickie Jensen. We created the Hydrobot program in late 2011 and distributed more than 250 Hydrobot kits and 100 Hydrosensor kits to schools around Greece, engaging more than 5000 students from Junior High Schools and High Schools (ages 12 to 18 years old).



Design and construct a robot vehicle that can move and get a glimpse of how engineers work. You will also learn how to navigate the vehicle and avoid any obstacle. Transform it into a full-scale robot.
