The Industrial Gas Museum “travels” to the schools of Attica in an exciting educational suitcase. Students 8-12 years old discover in the classroom the different stages of gas production, the workers’ job profile and the working conditions, the 19th-century machinery and the history of the neighbourhood around the factory through numerous educational games and archival material. Children are introduced to concepts such as “product”, “production line”, and “factory” and get to know the relationship of the factory with energy, the environment and man. Thus, courses such as modern history, physics and especially energy, language and art are seen from a new perspective through games.
The original activities of the museum suitcase enhance children’s social empathy and sensitivity to social and environmental issues, while group educational activities promote the development of not only social skills, such as teamwork, communication, active participation and cooperation but also life skills, such as responsibility, problem-solving, critical thinking, conflict resolution, etc.
The museum suitcase “We travel with gas” includes:
• Printed instructions for teachers and students
• Audiovisual material (video projection)
• Historical archives and copies of documents
• Sensory Interaction Cubes
• Card games
• Board Games
• Mystery games
• The Industrial Gas Museum Catalogue
• An Evaluation Questionnaire
Each educational activity includes historical and other supplementary information and photographic material on different topics.
