About us

1ο ΣΕΚ ΕΚ Βόλου

The goal of 1st EK of Volos is to implement the laboratory classes of the five schools it supports. Its laboratories are located in the respective schools, but their fine operation is 1st EK's responsibility.
A fundamental part of this effort is based on our 30Kw photovoltaic park, which was built during the time Mr. George Philippou was the headmaster. The income brought by this park allows for the maintenance and upgrade of our laboratories.
We constantly try to participate in European Programmes. We consider this experience invaluable for both our students and teachers.

    Our school is participating in an European program


    The 1st EK of Volos is participating in the Erasmus+ European Program entitled "Interdisciplinary Intelligent Passive House Design - Ways to Save Energy and Reduce Pollution"

    The program is implemented by three schools:

    1. The Polish Zespół Szkół Technicznych w Kartuzach, a group of vocational schools
    2. The German BBS Bersenbrueck in Germany, a modern school with well-equipped workshops for construction, electrical engineering, mechatronics, electronics)
    3. The Greek 1st EK of Volos

    The purpose of the project is the use of the educational process aiming to design the home of the future, which will be a passive building that uses up to 90% less energy for heating, cooling and electricity.

    The operation of Passive Buildings has reduced cost requirements, while their construction costs are surprisingly affordable. In addition, this investment in energy saving is much cheaper and more efficient in the long term.

    The program includes 18 students and 20 teachers of the 1st EK of Volos, a quite experienced school in managing its own photovoltaic park and focuses on renewable energy, construction, and automation programs.
