Within the framework of the SDW 2018, the “STEM Azerbaijan” project has a number of activities from different school of the region. Students demonstrate a high level of activity and creative approach.
“SDW 2018” events for the science teachers from different regions of Azerbaijan were organised, including training activities in science and robotics. During the training activities from 11:00h to 18:00h, teachers learned how to build Arduinio, robot through programming, ICT skills, and effective STEM lesson plans. Nearly 50 teachers of the “STEM in Azerbaijan” project actively participated in this event, organised at ADA University in Baku.
WORLD Aviation and Cosmonautics Day on April 12! So another STEM holiday week is ahead. Are you ready to prepare a “water rack” with your students and test them in the yard of the school?Azerbaijani STEM teachers and their students will do it whith great pleasure.
• PROJECT • Investigation of reactive movement
Theoretical information. The fascinating practical application of the impulse conservation law is a reactive act. You know what jet activity is from the 6th and 8th grade physics disciplines:
● Reactive motion is when the body moves in the opposite direction when it moves with a part of it. For example, rocket movements are based on the principle of reactive movement.
Principle of the rocket operation. The missile is a closed system of cover and fuel. Covered pipe, one side closed and one side is open. A soplo was worn to release the burning gas on the open side of the cover. When the rocket is turned on, fuel burns into high pressure gas. As the pressure of the gas is high, it is thrown into the atmosphere at a great speed from the rocket’s sling, and the rocket shifts to the opposite side .
The start of the “water rocket”
Supply: plastic bottles (1 liter), water (0.5 l), fungus goggles, pneumatic and pneumatic pumps that blow air to the ball.
The course of action.
1. Pour 1/3 of water into the bottle, close the mouth with a plug, place the bottle upwards on the rack so that it is at 40-50 ° angle to the horizon.
2. Quickly hit the bottle with the needle pumping needle. After a few minutes in the bottle
“Exciting” events happen and the “rocket” is at a great pace
Note: The “rocket” can be used to design the surface of the rocket, making it possible to paste additional details from the top of the bottle with a rocket image.
Questions for students:
What is the reason for the “rocket” acceleration?
What kind of speed can this speed be calculated?
Novruz is a seasonal holiday symbolizing the awakening of nature. The features of this holiday are all connected to STEM. That’s why we can say that Novruz is a STEM holiday. I wish success to teachers who joined our project. Hopefully, we will work on a mutually beneficial project for our students and other schools from different regions. School No 221 from Baku is preparing for SDW 2018 with great pleasure. Here are some links to event videos:
STEM holiday – Novruz is full of refreshing nature. We’ll celebrate Novruz STEM traditions with all students of our republic Azerbaijan. The holiday of Novruz, which marks the coming of a new astronomical year and the reawakening of nature, has always been the Azerbaijani people’s most cherished holiday. But according to tradition, people begin to prepare for this holiday from the last month of winter, continue the holiday celebrations with the arrival of the equinox and carry on celebrating into the New Solar Year. Novruz in Azerbaijan has always been a spring holiday that celebrates the revival of nature, moral purity and equality. It was and remains primarily a holiday of the Sun and its earthly representation, Fire. There are a lot of STEM events throughout the Festival of Novruz.
The STEM Azerbaijan project was one of the official partner projects of STEM Discovery week 2018. Within the framework of the international project, we intend to implement the STEM holiday Novruz project together with the teachers who have been named STEM teachers of the republic. Our project has been officially added to the SDW18 – Activities’ map.
http://www.stemazerbaycanda.com/”STEM Azərbaycanda” layihəsi beynəlxalq STEM Discovery week 2018 -in rəsmi tərəfdaş layihələrindən oldu. Beynəlxalq layihə çərçivəsində “STEM holiday Novruz” layihəsini respublikanın STEM müəllimi adı almış müəllimləri ilə birgə həyata keçirmək niyyətindəyik. Layihəmiz rəsmi olaraq SDW18 – Activities’ xəritəsinə əlavə olundu.
