Participants of SCIENTIX competitions are invited to blog about their activities for the 2020 STEM Discovery Campaign here!
I am vice-principal also a computer science teacher in a high school. I am STEM coordinator of Bursa from Turkey. I am writing thesis as a PHD student on educational management. I am also an ambassador of Scientix and Europeana DSI-4. I am interested in integrating STEM subjects to learning. As a computer science teacher, i am participating and conducting national and international projects.
A teacher asked students to solve a problem using technology. Students said that no one reads texts on school boards so they planned to add some interaction to school boards.
Our students researched the ways to interact with photos and text on school boards. Then they came up with the idea of using augmented reality. They used some tools and chose ROAR tool to implement in this project.
We have organised the STEM Discovery Week 2019 activities in 6 Nisan Anatolian High School. I am going to write about my experiences connected with the activities of bioeconomy.
What is bioeconomy?
Students watched a video about bioeconomy, “The Bioeconomy starts here!” https://youtu.be/2xvXkOMRTs4. Teacher defined bioeconomy as the production of renewable biological resources and their conversion into food, feed, energy, chemicals and other materials. The EU definition of bioeconomy is “sustainable production and processing of biomass for food, health products, fibre products, industry, and energy”
My students determined a problem and solve it using robotic technologies. I presented renewable energy resources to the students. I used a web page https://goo.gl/RmHNp2 and asked students to design a model which will use a windmill or a solar battery to produce energy. Students designed models and presented them in a class. Students thought how they can produce energy.
I am a vice-principal and a computer science teacher from Turkey. We are organising 3 STEM week activities in 6 Nisan Anadolu Lisesi (6 Nisan Anatolian High School ) between 22.04.2019 and 28.04.2019. Our activities are now in the STEM Discovery Week 2019 Map.

The EU’s definition of bioeconomy is “sustainable production and processing of biomass for food, health products, fibre products, industry, and energy” European Network For Forest Pedagogy, internet-platform that intends to develop as an European-wide forum for information and communication about forest pedagogics, offers basic frames of standards to describe what is required in order to deliver environmental education for sustainable development. The standard describes six steps of pedagogical approaches with activities to increase environmental maturity; learn to enjoy outdoors, experience and observe nature, understand the ecological web, understand the interplay between man and nature, make decisions on environmental issues, be responsible for nature.
