Feel free to browse my books, guides and educational resources.
Here are a few things that have been said about my work:
"A Greek amateur astronomer's burning enthusiasm brings the greatest surviving artefact of Hellenistic times (the Antikythera Mechanism) to the center stage of the International Science Festival held in the Scottish Orkney Islands". - to Vima, Greek newspaper on the Antikythera Mechanism Outreach project
"An amazing insight into the people of the times, and an excellent and thought-provoking lecture by Dr. Vassilios McInnes Spathopoulos.". - the Orkney News website on the Antikythera Mechanism Outreach project
"The fascinating book by Dr Vassilios Spathopoulos presents the ultimate guide to must-see places for science lovers, from ancient sites to planetariums". - Greece Is travel magazine, on Scientific Secrets of Athens
"Here you will learn about the observatory of Meton that was set up 2,500 years ago, or how to get to the Tower of the Winds, the world's oldest meteorological station that observed both the weather and the time. In short, in this guide you will discover the scientific secrets of Athens, for a walk that is different from the usual kind of walks. Besides, this is its name: Scientific Secrets of Athens". -Translated from the Greek edition of the HuffPost, on Scientific Secrets of Athens
"The book by Vassilios has been used recently by some of our instructors teaching a course with similar title, "Physics of Sports" offered to 7-10th graders...Since the book is written in easy language with explanation of the physics behind every equation, and is low cost, it is definitely a good starting point for a serious study of the subject" - Dr. Muhammad Ali Yousuf,
Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, on An introduction to the Physics of Sports
"Strength, Power, and Speed is all about movement and weight transfer, and movement is all about physics. 'The Introduction to the Physics of Sports' is an excellent book that breaks down all the myths associated with Sports. You don't need a College degree to understand the basic fundamentals of physics, and how it applies to all sports, as this book will show you how. Recommended." - Jimson Lee
