Applying STEM lessons during online learning

Author: Ferhat Ayranci

We implemented a lesson as an online lesson which was originally designed for classroom. Students learnt about natural disasters via an educational game (stopdisastersgame.org) and designed solutions for their imaginary villages. Their aim in the mentioned game is to protect their villages from different disasters.

Students spent an hour on playing stopdisastersgame which helps students understand the basic characteristics of natural forces and also provides some visual explanation about the preventive ways of negative consequences of natural disasters.

The game focuses on 5 main disasters

Students then worked on their villages. Since they are future citizens, engineers and architects etc. , they are now aware of the fact that they will have to help their communities on a local or global scale.

Students designed their safe villages

I am so happy to see that we could implement an online STEM challenge with different tools and with a good level of success.
