Throughout history, artists have used materials in nature as a tool for themselves. We can be inspired by nature in our activities. People discovered nature. It obtained paint from plants in nature hundreds of years ago and used it in many areas. Our high imagination, curiosity and needs encouraged us to make inventions and obtain products.
We organized Nature-Based activities. We asked the students to explore nature and what they could do with the plants they found. As children make their own products, their interest in science and art increases. We created a problem situation for them. We waited for them to produce solutions. The age group of our activity is 4-6 years old and it continued for 2 days. It reached 8 students and 10 teachers in 95 schools in Turkey.

On April 23, 2019, the topic “Symmetry in Mathematics and Art” was presented at Teodor Trayanov’s 10th School in Sofia. During the hour Neda, Koya and Toni introduced the students of the 5th grade with several types of symmetry in mathematics and art. With the help of dynamic resources created with Geogebra, the pupils made an author’s works.
It is a specific online competition, which connects mathematics, IT and art. The purpose of the competition is to develop key competences and popularise mathematical instruments in front of a wide audience.The competition is a motivating tool for students to learn new knowledge and create their own environments and artworks.
To enter the competition you must fill in the data and attach an author’s photo or a dynamic file. There is no limit to the number of models that anyone can participate in. Each entry is self-registered. There are no age restrictions for the participants. After the deadline for participation, the works will be displayed in a voting gallery. There is a limit for voting from one address to 1 time a day. At the end of the second stage, the winners selected by the jury as well as the most liked work from the audience will be announced.
