About Us

INTERACTIVE EXHIBITS

Here in Planet Physics, we have created an impressive interactive exhibition, containing no less than 35 exhibits, designed to challenge visitors’ minds and senses. Our exhibits are educational, impressive and – most importantly – kids love “playing” with them! Our collection is not strictly kids oriented. Exhibits like the “Chaotic Pendulum”, “Tsunami”, “Ferrofluid” or the “Hyperbolic slot’’, always amaze the adult visitors too!

EXPERIMENTS AND LABS

We present to our visitors the most impressive science experiments in the world! Quantum Levitation, experiments with Liquid Nitrogen, experiments of combustion and explosion, pressure, sound, optics …and the list goes on! We are proud of the quality of our experiments and of their educational value! But our labs are not only used for experiments. We have several classes giving an experimental approach of the topics that students are being taught theoretically in school. Furthermore, we have several STEM classes, depending on the kids’ age and experience.

PLAYGROUND

How about a playground in your Sience Center? After a tour in your interactive exhibition, kids would love to play in the playground –and their parents would appreciate it, too – as they can relax in your café! Having a small playground in your facility will be a great “asset” for the Science Parties held in your Science Center.

Science Center visitors

Science Center visitors

Our visitors can enjoy a fully guided tour to our interactive exhibition, given by our experienced and motivated guides. Every interactive exhibit is presented by our guides, giving the visitors all the required information about the scientific phenomenon in question, with interesting and funny questions, tips and explanations needed! All the guests’ questions are welcomed and answered, and information about the practical and everyday appearance of the phenomenon is provided. Of course, the guests, are then welcomed to interact with the exhibit, testing it and observing the results of their actions. The tour lasts for approximately one hour and later the guests are free to relax in our café, let their children play in the playground or buy a scientific toy from our shop!

School field trips

School field trips

Our Science Center offers scientific, interesting and informative educational programs, for kids from 4 to 18 years old! Schools organize field trips in our Science Center, choosing from a big variety of educational programs, adjusted to the age and interests of the children. We have created programs for many chapters of the school books of all classes, adjusted to the educational material and level, presented in a scientific yet amusing and interactive way, so that children find themselves learning in a fun, interesting way, while playing, doing experiments, and participating in theatrical plays!

Science parties

Science parties

Planet Physics provides the opportunity of organizing science birthday parties that help the children to be creative, learn interesting things, play and get amazed by the most spectacular Science experiments in the world! Our parties’ program offers amusing constructions of toys such as fidget spinners, Newton disks, origamis and much more, that children can take with them, time to play in the playground, scientific experiments in the lab, guided tour of our interactive exhibits, face painting, balloon toys and many other, provided with a meal and cake time! At the same time our café is a place where parents can relax and enjoy their drink while their kids are having the time of their lives!

Summer camp

Summer camp

Do you ever find yourself wondering what are you going to do with your kids while they are on vacation, although you still need to be at work? Well, Planet Physics has the answer! We offer you the opportunity to bring your children in our summer camp, that allows the children to have the time of their lives and yourself the time to attend your obligations knowing your kids are in good hands! Our camp program consists of a good nourishing breakfast, fun games in the garden, tour of our interactive exhibits, robotics, theatrical play, scientific constructions, experiments and much more! We divide the children in small groups according to their age, so they can also make friends and work well as a group! Our crew is experienced and capable of answering all the kids’ needs!

Outreach programs

Outreach programs

PLANET PHYSICS participates in many evets that take place in theme parks, shopping malls, Science Festival etc, giving the opportunity to more people to enjoy our interactive exhibits and unique experiments! Our participation can consist of the presentation of spectacular Science experiments, or the presence of our moving exhibition in the premises of the event. This way, people who live away from our town can also enjoy the unique experience of our exhibition and be part of a magnificent scientific event! Due to our well-organized programs and presentations, as well as our unique scientific experiments and interactive exhibits, we are often invited to participate in numerous events around Greece!

STEM and experimental courses

STEM and experimental courses

Along with our other activities, we organize various courses of different educational programs such as STEM programs, robotics, chess and experimental courses in the lab! We divide our participants in groups according to their age and level of expertise, so that we can provide them with the maximum satisfaction and knowledge. Some programs can also have groups of adults, so our programs are not only provided for children! Well-experienced experts oversee our programs, making the learning progress fun and enjoyable!

Founder

How is a Lieutenant Commander connected to a Science Center? Kostas, a former Navy Officer with 20 years of service, became fascinated with interactive exhibits while studying for a Master’s degree in Physics, in the USA. While observing Science “informal education” through extremely advanced facilities, Kostas realized the immense value intrinsic in this type of unique learning experience. As someone deeply interested in Physics and how the world works ever since childhood, Kostas was captivated by how can Science become a fun process and accessible to everyone, especially kids. He returned to Greece with a vision and he soon decided to dedicate his experience and efforts to create something unique in his country. Driven by his growing obsession with interactive exhibits and his commitment to Science “informal education”, Kostas resigned from the Navy and grouped together some very talented people to work with him. Facing severe lack of financing, due to the long-lasting crisis, the team had to maintain a high level of quality with minimum financial resources. PLANET PHYSICS was founded in February 2015. Since then, PLANET PHYSICS has provided interactive exhibits, built to educate, impress and amuse children and adults, making Science a fascinating experience.

It was not always easy…. Our Architect (Velis) had to make many corrections to the original exhibits so that they can be durable enough to be handled by kids. Month after month, the corrections became fewer and fewer, until they stopped. After almost 3 years, we are confident that our exhibits are thoroughly “tested” by thousands of kids and we are ready to make more.

Kostas confesses: “It’s an amazing feeling to know that your profession not only integrates all your passions, but also makes a positive impact on hundreds of people every single day!”
