Record attendance for the 10th ACSTAC 2024

More than 180 Anatolia High School students participated in the 10th ACSTAC, taking the opportunity to present their work as real researchers and giving substance to ideas that combine scientific knowledge and social benefit. In total, the conference hosted 550 students from 40 public and private high schools in Greece, who presented their projects in 90 oral presentations or as one of the 73 exhibitions/constructions in the various fields of STEAM.

During the opening ceremony, they had the opportunity to listen to Dr. George Giannopoulos, currently the Head of the Technologies for Space, Security, and Connectivity Unit, working on security-related topics, such as critical infrastructure risk and resilience, Galileo, 5G applications and implementation of the EU Space Program, on the topic "The European Union and space exploration: charting the path to innovation and prosperity for future generations."

After the sessions, students also had the opportunity to attend two of the 12 workshops during the two-day conference on a host of topics, such as Patent Office Simulation, Quantum Physics, Robotics, Arduino, and many more.
