When the subject of education is examined all over the world, we determined that the most emphasized concept is STEAM. In traditional education, courses are taught independently from each other and it is important to associate different disciplines with each other in STEAM education.

Kulturpark Rotary aims to increase carbon footprint awareness in its Carbon Free I'm Happy presentations.

It is seen as “Improving the quality and efficiency of education and training, encouraging creativity and innovation, including entrepreneurship, at all stages of Education and Training”. This learning scenario includes a series of engaging lessons that explore ways to reduce carbon footprint, reduce water footprint, renewable energy and recycling. It includes STEM-related activities in science fiction Emissions to move towards the use of renewable energy. Lessons aim to help students learn while having fun.

It aims to provide information about renewable and non-renewable energy sources and to raise awareness about recycling. Students This learning scenario helps students think about actions necessary for future sustainability During the weekly class hour, the lessons can be taught alone or as part of a more cohesive project throughout the course.

Each of the activities has a multidisciplinary approach. Students are encouraged to work collaboratively with their peers. Thanks to the emphasis placed on discussion and group work, students were encouraged to take on an investigative role in this project.

It is our priority to raise our students who have low academic success and talent for fine arts in our schools. and creativity and bringing them into society. As a result, students will take their places in society as individuals who have gained a sense of responsibility with high self-confidence, learning and renewal skills, information media and technology skills, life and professional skills. Within the scope of the project, students will have important information about different STEAM applications. This will increase students’ motivation to come to school. In addition, the academic success of the students will increase. With STEAM applications, students will expand their horizons. Students’ self-confidence will increase and their communication in a foreign language will improve.

I started the project, I merged with the group. ”

In our schools, it is our priority for teachers to use Stem literacy in their STEAM activities by learning Nature-based solutions, and to raise conscious individuals by guiding students to become responsible citizens in their future lives.
Students will take part in society as responsible individuals with learning and innovation skills, information media and technology skills, life and professional skills, self-confidence.

  • Awareness about natural life and human impact on natural life will be increased.
  • Access to scientific information will increase,
  • Will be able to learn tips and advice for younger students and their families
    With STEAM applications, students’ horizons will be opened and their academic success will increase.
    -Students will improve their communication in a foreign language.

Ecology based nature education in Cukurova Delta and its surrounding

Nature is wise. A pine tree does not try to establish authority over deer. Or mushroom plants will not be envious. A turtle travels patiently through life. Nature has a lot to offer to a human. Yet the youth is far from it.

Young people spend their day in a closed world in the triangle of telephone-television-computer. With this project, our students will explore Cukurova Delta and its surroundings and the natural life within it for 7 days. They will love and learn to protect. This is the purpose of our project.
Cukurova and its surrounding natural elements such as landforms, water resources, climate, vegetation, soil features and historical human structures such as castles, mounds and aqueducts are examined, and the education and activities to be given by experts in these areas are about the environment and nature.

“The World is My Habitat” Ecological and Carbon footprint, Covid-19’s Impact on Carbon Footprint

Habitat or habitat, the place where a creature lives and thrives. This place can be a physical region, a special part of the earth, air, soil, or water. Habitat can be as large as an ocean or a meadow, or a decayed tree can be as small as an insect’s gut.
The cause of global warming is the harmful gases people release into the atmosphere. With this study, our aim is to raise awareness by providing a better understanding of the concept of carbon footprint in society.

Technology is developing rapidly, the consumption trend is increasing day by day. It is not possible to directly reduce the carbon footprint to zero as we cannot give up our basic vital activities.
Scientific process steps will be applied in the study. Literature review, research, examination, comparison and decision-making methods will be used. With this study, we measure our carbon footprint, and the annual average amount of carbon a person releases into the atmosphere will be determined. Through the school website, social media and EBA, posts, presentations, videos, short films and paintings will be made to raise awareness of the society.

How to Reduce Carbon Footprint?

  1. Walk
  2. Use a bicycle
  3. Preferance to bulk transport
  4. Travel with More than one person in individual vehicles
  5. Reduce flight rides
  6. Use a hybrid tool
  7. Pay attention to energy efficiency inside the home
  8. Use enough electronic products

With (“The World is My Living Space”), we are participating in the 2021 STEM Discovery Week, (6 countries). We are working with 15 teachers and 105 students.
2021 Stem Discovery Campaign and (“The World is My Habitat”) Project Training.
1-Ecological and Carbon footprint, Covid-19’s Impact on Carbon Footprint
2-Water footprint
4-Forest footprint grassland footprint agriculture footprint
5-Global warming
6-Renewable energy

With this study, it has been tried to popularize what will be done to reduce the carbon footprint in society. By saving energy we can reduce our carbon footprint by doing and changing some of our habits. In addition, trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. The importance of planting trees for society will be explained in order to pay off our debt to nature, albeit a little.

What are the Contributions of Asteroid Mining or Space Mining to the World Economy?


The eTwinning project for Astro-Stem was carried out to promote astronomy and space sciences. This was done through the deeply-rooted work of the students, who learnt with fun and discovered the mystery of the universe.

With the AstroStem project, astronauts will get accurate information about the history of astronomy, constellations and mythological stories, and try to get to know the universe.

The teams worked collaboratively in the AstroStem project. One of these activities, “MaStem”, is the work dedicated for the 2020 STEM Discovery Campaign. Thus, we are participating in the 2020 STEM Discovery Campaign, with “The ADVENTURE OF STEM with Mars”, the joint STEM work of our project.

The project has 24 partners, 24 teachers and 24 schools coming from Turkey and from Europe. In total, 170 students were involved in the project.

In the “ADVENTURE OF Mars with STEM” event, we tried to explain how a team planning to travel to Mars manages this process through the distribution of tasks.

The work to be done by the teams was divided into 12 parts:

Mars through the eyes of an astronaut.Team 1
What do people need to know to live on Mars?Team 2
Space home design for those who dream of livings on Mars.Team 3
Repairing a system damaged by sandstorms on Mars.Team 4
Elimination of psychological and social adaptation problem to Mars.Team 5
What are the contributıons of asteroid mınıng or space mining to the World?Team 6
What are the characteristics of vehicles sent into space?Team 7
How does an astronaut prepare for space travel?Team 8
Solving the problem of food under Martian conditions.Team 9
What are the things you should take wıth you on your way to Mars?Team 10
Finding a solution to the water problem in Mars conditions.Team 11
What are the characteristics of an astronaut suitable for Martian conditions?Team 12
