Fethiye Özel Sena Fen Lisesi is here!

Fethiye Özel Sena Fen Lisesi is a private science high-school which is located in Muğla/Turkey. The school and its teachers, themselves, so dedicated to teaching- especially teaching by using different kinds of methods just as drama. Thanks to our Physics and Astronomy teacher Umut Güzel, we have also been hearing all about the recent unusually perpetual teaching and learning method: STEM.

So proud of being the only school-all around Aegean Region in Turkey- that is a part of STEM Discovery Week, here we are, saying YES to STEM!

We are so excited and can’t wait to share our experiences with you. Let’s keep in touch. Best memories yet to come. 

 

Thanks STEM, call me a scientist now!

Navigating to relevant activity searches this week, students focused on demonstrative videos from YouTube.

I call my students # My Innovative Scientix.

Such are they, after they tried to be researchers in the subjects of physics and chemistry this semester. They tried to formulate the generalisation of the experiment and test the jumping hypothesis.

They left … Yes, Yes they left.

The exchange of knowledge about atmospheric printing, fluidity of fluids, proportional ratios in mathematics, and errors made in measurements are unquestionably presented to the cellular apparatus and advertised in social groups.

This exchange continues even more throughout STEM (STEAM) Discovery Week. We are competitive, both within the school, the community and the entire European community throughout this scientific week. In the video, students speak in Albanian, one of the oldest languages ​​in the Balkans, but communication through experimentation makes us understand more.

Children feel motivated, look more beautiful, clearer, do not make mistakes on their experimental performance, do not be fooled by mathematical calculus actions, look nice in the picture that they will create a video for the entire experimental school bank …

How much emotions all groups have been followed by this activity …

The special ones, my Albanian scientists!

20000 Leagues Under the Sea DIVERCIENCIA

                 ¨20000 LEAGUES UNDER  THE SEA¨

With this project we aim to plan, test, apply and produce a complete Learning Project, using Inquiry Methodology, aimed at Pre School and Primary School Students, about the Earth’s Oceans features. From the book “20.000 Leagues Under the Sea”, Students will be lead to research, formulate and test hypothesis and share knowledge with their classmates in their local communities, as well as exchanging ideas with other students from a different country. Thereby, they would be able to learn another language, share each other’s culture and discover the local environment. In this way we would expect to widen our students knowledge opening new horizons and motivating them to protect our planet’s natural marine resources. This project also aims to improve the use of STEAM methodologies both in Pre School and Primary School, by encouraging the students to use ICT and Robotic resources, to recreate scenes, test hypothesis and share conclusions from the story read. Students will also be expected to investigate, learn and discuss about Aquatic Transportation. By stimulating students natural curiosity, we would try to produce a wide range of resources to teach them and others about Earth’s Ocean’s features and needs. Last but not least…this project will produce new material available for everybody to see created by the children themselves, sharing  a valuable multilingual resources bank (Spanish, Portuguese, English) about the oceans, their animals and plants, at the same time.

 

Citizen science students about earthquakes in STEM education

STEM Discovery Week is coming but the STEM club Evangeliki Model High of Smyrna managed by Argyri Panagiota has participated in innovative activities for studying earthquakes from February.

Students must be exposed to real problems in order to learn how to develop, evaluate and choose solutions. Seismology can be safely considered as a field of science that offers this particular real-world environment that will motivate and improve student’s problem solving skills, both individual and collaborative

Teachers must also be prepared to look at the real world, especially the world of the students, in order to attract the emotional field to problem solving (willingness and persistence), but also to the cognitive field, helping to transfer skills to different environments.

Students develop STEM skills and take role of researcher, engineer, ICT programmer  participate to the competition  Make your own seismographer under the framework Open Schools for Open Socities EU Project, The competition organised by Ellinogermaniki Agogi and the Geodynamic Institute of the National Observatory of Athens.

Students participated in a Greek Student Parliament 2018 that includes real parliamentary procedures while acting as researchers on scientific issues with the help of distinguished specialists and scholars. It aims at enhancing dialogue and exchange of views and knowledge among students and scientists by involving children in parliamentary processes on issues that cover diverse areas of science and research and everyday life.

The theme area of ​​the Greek Student Parliament for this year is:
“Earthquakes: Exploring today’s achievements, future challenges and expectations in terms of education, response and prevention.” And it includes three sub-sections
A) Education, B) Tackle C)Prevention

Creativity in Earthquakes
