PHYSICS AND FLAMENCO. DIVERCIENCIA

Our daily challenge as disseminators of scientific knowledge is to bring this knowledge to the students in a meaningful way, so that this facilitates that, through an internal process, they use it in the development of a competence. This is the main reason for organising a science fair.

It has been a pleasure to participate in the inauguration of the Second fair of science of Tarifa, showing the project of “Physics and Flamenco”, a winner of Diverciencia 2017 and Science in Action 2017. With this project not only the physics is transmitted in a significant way of sound, but also the transformation of something physical, like sound, into something as human as art, in this case flamenco, representative of Andalusian culture and intangible heritage of humanity. Thanks to Ana Villaescusa Lamet, Andrés Luis Martín, Ezequiel Andréu and Manuel Salazar Miranda.

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!

Water with Science

WATER WITH SCIENCE

AGUA A CON CIENCIA

This  collaborative project is born to improve our environment and to delve into knowledge  to value and love a precious good like it is water. Its objectives expose the main characteristics of water and, from there, carry out experiences the help to internalize the objectives.

This citizen science project aims to show the water cycle, different uses that this limited resource receives and how can we rationalize our consumption, improve use at home and, above all, in our schools.

To achieve meaningful student learning involved, experiences have been designed to capture the contents and advance in a consumption more conscious. With surveys, the school compiled a lot of data for, within the framework of a science initiative citizen, find solutions and reduce consumption.
