The engineer and Director of the Technical School EPAS of Kiato Panos Megaritis has supervised the Planet Park construction. The installation has been constructed in the steel construction factory of Ioannis and Andreas Rovas (Kiato).

The panels of the planets have been created by the research groups of youth the exchange and in all languages ​​of the participants involved (see panels below).
