From Electric Field To Nanotechnology
From Pre-school to University
Science Inspired by Spider!
Teachers: Ayşin Kahramantekin, Ceyda Nur Yılmaz, Umut Güzel, Onur Kırık, Umut Kanya
How do spiders spin extremely strong and long fibres only a few nanometers thick? May it have to do with electric charge?
Yes! Spider spins silk fibers only a few nanometers thick with electric charge.
So, can we make a simple cell phone battery with aluminium foil and stretch film, charge it, and measure the electric field? Yes, our students just did that! From pre-school to high school!
About our project
We, as educators from different cities, were very happy to adopt the same STEM plan to different levels from pre-school to university, and implement it enthusiastically and in cooperation. It has been a magical learning journey for students and educators.Continue reading
