Mythological Lab for Kids & Athens Science Festival 2019

For the 3rd consecutive year, the Mythological Lab for Kids, founded and organized by the Supreme Council of Ethnic Hellenes (YSEE), will participate in the Athens Science Festival. The theme this year is: «Hercules and Geomythology,» which will be presented on Saturday, April 06, at 3:00 p.m.

With Hercules as our fellow-traveler and the science of Geomythology as our guide, we travel to the places of the myth and learn about the environmental-changes associated with his labors. Geomythology is the academic discipline that emerged from the intersection of Geology and Mythology. It deals with the interpretation of natural-myths in relation to the natural environment and the climatic conditions of prehistoric-times. Our aim is to bring children incontact with the natural environment and its changes in prehistory through the science of Geomythology. (Source: Athens Science Festival)
