OTE and Cosmote support Antikythera Shipwreck exhibition

Friday 28 December 2012 | 12:40 CET | News

OTE and Cosmote have announced their support for the exhibition 'The Antikythera Shipwreck: The ship, the Treasures, the Mechanism' at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. OTE and Cosmote is providing technology and education to help visitors understand the Antikythera Mechanism, including an application that helps users to navigate the exhibition room and find out more information about the ship, the treasures and the ancient astronomical computer. They are providing an application based on the NEMO system, the first comprehensive museological application for location-based services in Europe as well as a smartphone application, introducing technological innovation to museum tours in Greece.

In addition, the museum, with the support of OTE and Cosmote, runs an e-learning programme for teenagers. Thousands of children over the age of 15 are invited to go online and unlock the mysteries and functions of the Mechanism through four different modes (as archaeologist, epigraphist, engineer or historian of science).

Also, more than 50 students from Kythera and Symi were hosted by OTE and Cosmote to acquaint themselves with these rare findings with the help of archaeologists and scientists at the museum. Within the next few months, dozens of schools in the Attica region and nearby provincial towns will be received and guided around the museum, with OTE and Cosmote covering their transport and food expenses, as well as providing souvenirs and a specially designed tour programme by scientific personnel of the museum.
