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
3-Recycling
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?

Authors: SERGİN ŞAHİNOĞULLARIGİL and HATİCE GERGİN

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
