A stop motion animation video on the Big Bang Theory, created by the 3rd Primary School of Chios, Greece, under the guidance of primary teacher Despoina Armenaki (pictured below) has won a global competition on creating an educational video on astronomy. The competition was held by the OAD project ”Looking …Up! Astronomy for ALL”. The project aims to promote inclusive astronomy education.
A total of 46 entries were received from six countries around the world. Out of five finalists, two winners were selected in the end. The 3rd Primary School of Chios, Greece, is part of “Playing with Protons”, an education initiative led by the CMS experiment at CERN bringing together primary school teachers, science education specialists and CERN researchers to develop creative approaches to helping all primary students engage effectively in physics, discovery and innovation.
