STAY AT HOME WITH STEM

Participants: Etwinning Project Partners Teachers, Students and Parents from

As partners of the eTwinning project from Stem Club to Stem School, we decided to participate in Stem Discovery Campaign with a challenge, led by project founders Candan Kilbul and Cem Moran. We talked about what we could do for the 2020 STEM Discovery Campaign and how we could apply online teaching by organising webinars.

Our schools have been closed since 13 March 2020 because of the Covid-19. For this reason, we decided to do a challenge called “Stay Home With STEM” by doing STEM activities at home. We made a lesson plan under the leadership of our project founders.

We implemented various live events and sound recordings with our students in our lesson plan. The students were given a task related to our daily life. They were asked to think about how we could help the elderly uncle in the fairy tale (that we read) to measure things. The students made an interesting investigation on the Internet and shared their finding related to the weighing tools. They designed how they could scale various things.

During the live event that we organized, students they prepared some materials and were encouraged to use expressions such as “heavy”, “light”, “balance”, “kilogram”, “gram” by weighing the materials they determined during this challenge.

For the evaluation, we expected the students to design posters related to weighing tools.

We carried out our “Stay At Home With STEM” activity between 20 April 2020 and 26 April 2020. We promoted our event on a website.

  1. With this project, I learned the style and was able to apply stem studies in my classroom. We also made balloons that went with the family participation work. We had a lot of fun, we learned a lot.
