Alexandros Delmouzos, the first Professor of Education in the Faculty of Philosophy of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and a main representative of Progressive Education in Greece, attempted to set up the laboratory. His proposal was rejected by the Ministry and this was one of the reasons that led to his resignation. Today, the laboratory accommodates the research conducted by the Department, as well as other academic activities.
