Isaac Newton propounded that light consists of a flow of particles. Generations of students and researchers have accepted this idea. Light was believed to be composed of large numbers of billiard-ball type material bodies, visualized as spherical objects that traveled through vacuum and non-opaque regions with no luminiferous medium required. Thomas Young’s work in the early nineteenth century contradicted this established view. He apparently started with a pro-wave agenda, which he communicated to the scientific community by means of a series of well-constructed experiments. One of his experiments remains one of the most famous and beautiful, the two slot experiment. Our students tried to make an artistic representation of the experiment.
The second Ltt of our project took place in Reykjavic, Iceland in April, 2018. In a very cold, at least for the Greeks, environment we had the change to live for a few days in a place that has very few similarities to our country. The weather, the daylight, even the ground itself created a unique experience that perhaps we could not even imagine. Some photos and video of this amazing place are shown here:

The 2st Ltt took place in Reykjavik, Iceland. Among other workshops our students tried to take photos and videos of all the monuments and spots they visited and made impression to them in order to create a photo show and a short video about the Art and Science spots in Reykjavik.

In order to celebrate the World Art Day, the girls of our team prepared a dancing show. It was based on ancient Greek dances and music and it was presented at the closed stadium of Pyrgos to a lot of people as after our show there would be student athletic events. You can see the videos of the dancing here:
The first Ltt took place in Palermo, Italy in March 2018. Our students and colleagues had the chance to visit this beautiful and joyful city. Here you can see some photos from moments and places they wanted to always remember
Here you can see the city’s most important sites and monuments as described by the Italian students
and finally a video made by the Greek team

The Golden Number or Ratio is considered as the most beautiful ratio in art and architecture for centuries. From the Parthenon to Salvador Dali’s The Sacrament of the Last Supper the Golden Ratio has been found in some of the world’s most celebrated creations.
Represented by the greek letter phi (φ), the Golden Ratio is the irrational value: φ=1.61803. In order to find the φ we can have a line segment and divide it into two smaller segments such that the ratio of the whole line segment (a+b) to segment a is the same as the ratio of segment a to segment b, like this
or using algebric form .
The geometrical representation of this is the golden rectangle which looks like this
Our team tried to find some of the most known art works that are created by using the φ ratio. The result is this video:
