Research Paths

From the oldest computer to Nasa

We are a young non-profit company, and we run training, educational and cultural projects. Born in 2013, our team puts different heads around the same table, with the goal of giving all the complementary tools to young people necessary to face their future after school: we are astrophysicists who worked for NASA space experiments, philosophers, lawyers, science educators, experts in pedagogy and in online distance learning, primary school teachers and electronic engineers.

Can we fight social exclusion and unemployment with technology?

NAR-SPI is an Erasmus + project involving Research Paths and 7 other partners across Europe, where we facilitate access to the job market for young people in vulnerable positions or with no job stability. How do we do this? By making available for them online educational material, by training them to use their own critical thinking, cognitive strategies, analysis and synthesis skills. All of this is done by focusing our teaching modules on storytelling: tutors and students themselves take an active role in teaching.

Storytelling in science education-experiences and perspectives
An e-book on the pedagogical use of storytelling to teach science, edited by our team members Panagiotis Kokkotas and Spyros Kokotas.

Professor Xenophon Moussas, member of our team, and in charge of the STEMFORYOUTH Astronomy course studied for years the oldest known computer, the Antikythera Mechanism, found underwater near the omonymous island. The mechanism is as old as the 2nd century BC, and is known for tracking the cycles of the Solar System.
