Distance teaching due to Covid-19 outbreak can be challenging. Being Scientix ambassador to Turkey and willing to engage students in STEM education, together with 85 teachers, on 13 April, 2020 we started the challenge project “STEM at Home”. As during the pandemic students are learning from home we wanted them to develop their problem-solving, creativity, communication, presentation and entrepreneurship skills. I joined this challenge with my 7 years old students that are in 1st grade. Please see their works in the video format below.
We decided to participate in the 2020 STEM Discovery Campaign during the “Science and Technology week” celebrated in Turkey in March 8 – 14.
We used TWIN SCIENCE materials in our effectiveness because it was the theme of “Innovative Trends in Education” and it contains very creative STEM materials for preschool and primary school students. The name of our project was “TWIN Science Sustainable STEM” in the 21st century, as STEM education aims to develop and deliver innovative solutions to global issues that are directly related to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
