ERATOSTHENES Centre of Excellence supports educational activities

For Schools

Promoting Earth Observation to schools since 2007

Since 2007, ERATOSTHENES Research Centre at the Cyprus University of Technology supports schools participating in national and European research competitions. Indeed, now through ‘EXCELSIOR’ project and ERATOSTHENES Centre of Excellence (ECoE) our activities with schools are more powerful in passion and enthusiasm!

We are ready to support groups of students to participate in school competition such as:

  • Stockholm Junior Water Prize
  • Cyprus Contest for Young Scientists
  • Competitions ΜΕΡΑ ΤΕΚΕ

Promoting Earth Observation to schools through ‘EXCELSIOR’ & ERATOSTHENES Centre Excellence

Our aim is to support students during their first contact with research, science and technology and encourage them to become young researchers. Students participate in research competitions by forming working groups and are guided by their teachers. In addition, researchers from the ‘EXCELSIOR’ & ERATOSTHENES Centre Excellence are also involved to guide the group through meetings and communication and assist them during all stages of their research work. These include the study of relative publications (literature review), set the question/hypothesis, design the experimental methodology, observation and analysis of the results and finally, conclusions and dissemination of the outcomes of the study.
