KASTELLORIZO – The first ever Kastellorizo Puzzle Festival took place September 24-26. The main goal was for scientific knowledge to reach everyone – young and old – in a simple, accessible and enjoyable way.

Puzzle Festival co-organizer Eleni Grammatikopoulou noted that the event was an absolute success.

Among the activities during the festival were discussions, scientific events in the form of games or theatrical narration, impressive experiments that explained everyday phenomena, tours, Stand up Science for children, exhibitions, theatrical / musical workshops and Karagiozis figure-making workshops for children, and, of course, countless puzzles to solve.
