previous experience: 1- The Designed for Better Learning (DfBL) program has successfully delivered a new educational paradigm in Greek public schools by transforming the built environment and the educational experience of 24 school communities, across all levels of education, in the City of Athens. It is an innovative, lowcost program that employs participatory design and maker education to refurbish underfunded schools in ways that enhance teaching, improve learning, generate pride and lead to personal as well as community development. 2- The Maker Space of the City of Athens is a state-of-the-art open laboratory, the only municipal facility of its kind in Greece, equiped with innovative design and fabrication technologies (laser-cutters, 3d printers and a CNC router) as well as modern technological applications that go beyond the computer screen (robots, haptic interfaces, interactive projections, virtual reality headsets, electronic invention tools and toys). It is an educational facility that organises and supports a large variety of learning programs for all age groups (STEM events for schools and life-long learning seminars) while providing free maker-oriented services for citizens.
