The educational activities of the Fe26 project aim to highlight the usefulness and breadth of metals and consist mainly of educational programs, guided tours and routes.


The basic idea of cultural heritage education is to provide opportunities for engaging in experiences to acquire new ideas and skills. The great importance of educational programs lies in the fact that they are linked to informal, experiential education while cultural routes are tours of places of special cultural importance or different cultural attractions of a local community with the aim of highlighting the importance of cultural heritage and other elements.

Within the framework of the Fe26 project, two activities have been developed: the educational program entitled “The world of metal – from the resource to the tool or work of art” as well as a cultural route entitled “Athens Highlights: a guide on a guide on becoming a capital”.

“The world of metal -going from resource to becoming tool or work of art” highlights the importance of the four basic metals: gold, silver, copper and iron and it aims to familiarize the participants with metals both as raw materials, aspects of metallurgy and metalworking from antiquity until today while also revealing their connection with Art and cultural heritage.

The cultural route entitled “Athens Highlights: a guide on becoming a capital”, concerns the prominent role of the four known metals, gold, silver, copper, iron in the life of Athens from antiquity to modern times.

Until the end of the Fe26 project, the development of two more activities is planned.

By coming into direct contact with cultural heritage or analyzing it, learners acquire knowledge, intellectual skills and a wider range of competences in matters such as cultural heritage conservation or social welfare.


Metals are everywhere around us, in the universe, in the depths of the earth but also within us and the educational program of the NWMW organization continues their history and connects them as raw materials with the objects and works of art that come from them.

Athens might not have conquered the world so completely, if it had not become the capital twice in its history without the know-how developed around metals and this cultural route developed by NWMW tells us how.

The educational program “The world of metal – from the resource to the tool or work of art” will be available to teachers in 2024. It is being redesigned and will be turned into a museum piece to travel all around Greece. In case of interest, contact:

In February 2024, our route entitled “Athens Highlights: a guide on becoming a capital”.” will be piloted for the first time in Greek and all we want from you is your presence and your opinion. We won’t stop you if you want to contribute financially. To find out about the route as well as the days and times of its implementation, contact:

The creation of the educational program and the cultural route were made by Doctor of Museology Popi Georgopoulou in collaboration with Panagiota Stellakis, Archaeologist - Museum Educator. The educational program was developed with the valuable help of the School of Mining Metallurgical Engineering and Maria Perrakis - doctor of metallurgy. The first implementation of the Educational Program was implemented at the Geo-Orama Museum at the National Technical University of Athens.
