In the morning, lectures were given by professors from the University of the University of Athens on nuclear and HEP physics. In the afternoon while the students attended a hands-on experience, a special session with the teachers took place. The teachers were introduced to the ISE project by C.Kourkoumelis,  who showed to the teachers the Z and Higgs demonstator in the iSE portal.
