Within STEM Discovery Week 2018, our 7th grade students with their teachers, Dalibor Todorovic and Aleksandar Stojkovic, visited the Laboratory of Astronomy and Astrophysics of the Department of Physics at the Faculty of Sciences and Mathematics. Professors Dragan Gajic and Milan Milosevic from this department held great presentations. The students were introduced to instruments for space observation, such as the LKS200 Meade telescope, Lunt solar telescope and Vixen solar telescope. They also learned interesting facts about our galaxy and the galaxy of Andromeda. They were introduced to Skywatcher and through the great photos they discovered the magic of the universe and realised that science and physics are all around us.
In the second part, we visited the laboratories of physics and through interesting lectures and experiments, held by professor Dragan Radivojevic, the students discovered the importance of physics. They were introduced to exercises in mechanics (acceleration of gravity, harmonic pendulum, physical and mathematical pendulum, determining resonance, determining the speed of sound), Thermodynamics (measurement of DHL-viscosity coefficient, determination of surface tension of liquids, measurement of the specific heat of water by flow calorimeter), optics, electrical engineering (Ohm’s law), measurement of radioactivity using Geiger-Miller’s counter.

Today is a very great day! First, my conference paper has been published in the Knowledge E publisher in relation to the International Conference on Southeast ASEAN studies. Here is the link: https://knepublishing.com/index.php/Kne-Social/article/view/2335/5164
You can read and learn about STEM applications in food, especially for ASEAN food marketing. Do you ever convey that the STEM movement could gather with industry sectors? Of course, starting today, you have to realise that it is possible!
The second point I want to mention, is that when I scrolled my Twitter feeds, I found IBE-UNESCO’s update about the Education 2030 agenda. This is the happiest thing for me and you too! Kindly check this out: inprogressreflections.ibe-unesco.org/15-clues-to-support-the-education-2030-agenda/
From the reflections, STEM is no.5 of the clues for the Education 2030 Agenda to foster sustainable development. I am feeling energised because STEM has a strong power to enhance education in the future. For instance, the STEM Discovery Week 2018 has become the meaningful agenda for applying sustainable education because STEM people could engage together and share their perspectives. That’s also the point of the clues’ implementation.
Therefore, I hope I can survive and strengthen my journey as a STEM teacher in Indonesia and widen my networking to create STEM Indonesia Ambassadors.
High-five for all the STEM people! Let’s collaborate without borders.
In our classrooms and schools, technology tools are an integral part of the learning process. We should orient our students towards efficient and safe use. The Safe Internet and its use activity took place in our school. Pupils presented their work and analyzed some of the advantages of using Internet in schools. Parents say that the school should play a key role in educating pupils about maintaining their information and internet security.
Collaboration between students and their work brought a better understanding of security policies and recognition of copyright.
