Together with my preschool students, we learned to discover the existence of air through experiments. Each student did an air-related experiment with their classmates. And he explained the purpose of his experiment. My Students What is STEM? How does STEM apply to the classroom and life? They sought answers to their questions. My students were very happy when they met STEM. And they learned to combine this in everyday life. Using technology, they learned how important air is for living things and how to maintain a sustainable air cycle. They learned to calculate the measurement of air mathematically. With the experiments I did with my students, they understood the weather better. They plotted the meteorological data. After these experiments, my students’ self-confidence increased. And by trying many things in life, they discovered learning by doing experiments. They made inquiries. They argued. They grasped interdisciplinary education better with experiments. In these experiments, the teacher was just the spectator. The children, on the other hand, took the position of teachers to their friends and themselves. My students made applications related to engineering after the experiments. They used air to flow water. They saw how air and water were drawn from water wells. They moved the vehicle with the power of air. Engineering applications were very interesting for my students. My students made applications related to engineering after the experiments.

They were able to do many other things like this through experimentation. They produced very nice products related to engineering. My students and I were very happy.
To enable my students to understand the importance of air for humanity. I planned events between 28.02.2022 and 25.03.2022 to inform about the importance of clean air, weather conditions and how we can create a sustainable clean air cycle. My students researched. They experimented. They made a presentation. They argued. By doing and living they increased their knowledge of the weather.
We made our flying balloon vehicles. We improved our engineering skills. We watched our balloons float.
In our experiment, we covered the glass on it during the combustion reaction, which means that while the oxygen in the glass decreases, the amount of carbon dioxide increases. It goes out after a short time as there is not enough oxygen left for the candle to burn. For this reason, the pressure in the glass drops.
Experimentally, we found air trapped between solid and liquid objects.
We watched the Clean Air Theater performed by Konya Metropolitan Municipality.
We did the “BALLOON INFLATION EXPERIMENT”. First we put vinegar up to the half of the bottle and then some carbonate. We placed the balloon in the mouth of the bottle. The carbonate inside the balloon was lifted up and met with the vinegar. The balloon was filled with gas and started to inflate.
Water transfer experiment by blowing air from a straw.
Our experiment to prove the existence of air.
We add mineral water to our jar with water and corn. We close the jar lid. The corns hold on to the air bubbles and begin to move upwards. When the air bubble bursts, they sink to the bottom. This cycle continues up and down.
We made a car that can move with air, which is an engineering product.
We followed the daily weather forecast. We discussed the weather with our friends.
We saw the orange peel with air in it rise to the surface of the water. We saw that the orange, which did not have enough air in it, collapsed to the bottom.
We created a water transfer vehicle, which is an engineering work, so that our animal friends do not become dehydrated by using the air.
