Abstract

The Eudoxos project aims at using the possibilities the Internet offers in order to transform the classroom into a research laboratory. The project studies the applicability of the emerging technology in the school sector and provides a platform that allows the students to use the Robotic Telescopes of the Eudoxos National Observatory for Education and Research in the framework of their school curriculum. The robotic telescopes are installed in the Eudoxos National Observatory for Education and Research on the Ainos mountain of Kefallonia Island (Ionian Sea), Greece, performing night sky as well as solar observations.
