There is much to be found in play

The Andrey and Julia Dashin Foundation will host a number of fundraising activities, workshops and attractions in collaboration with Frederick University during the tenth Cyprus-Russian Festival running this weekend at the Limassol Municipal Gardens.

From 4pm until 8pm on both days children will be able to make their own Pythagorean cup using recyclable materials. The cup is an invention of the famous Ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras, who used it to teach his students the virtue of moderation. The cup magically spills its entire contents out of the bottom if the user is greedy and pours liquid over a certain limit.

Children will also be able to participate in a Robotics Academy and learn how to programme robots. Through various innovative educational activities the children will discover the exciting world of robotics and learn how various machines can be programmed to help them learn.

Participants will follow simple steps of graphic programming to programme a hungry alligator, a drummer monkey, a football player, a roaring lion, a boat in a storm, a spinning top, dancing birds and, who knows, maybe a few more animals.

All proceeds from these events will be donated to the Miranda programme for physiotherapy for children with disabilities of the Dancing Queen Foundation. The Foundation will give an additional substantial donation to the Children Therapy Centre Stella Soulioti for children with disabilities of the Cyprus Red Cross Society.
