While technological developments are taking place rapidly in recent years, we think that STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education should be given starting from primary school in order for students to overcome the problems they may encounter in real life. They will learn to use 21st-century skills. Our goal is to raise individuals who can deal with problems and use scientific ways.
Duration: 7 months
Lesson Hours: 1 Lesson hour every week
By integrating STEM subjects, we encourage students to use the 5E Learning Model, Project-Based Learning, engineering designs and to work collaboratively to structure the teaching-learning process in a way that enables students to demonstrate the scientific thinking process, and to transfer knowledge to new situations. It provides benefits such as psychological vitality, superior cognitive functioning, less illness, and faster recovery after an illness in all individuals, especially in children. In fact, scientific research and design-based thinking are the basis of decision-making processes in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We want to prepare students for life by thinking that their learning by doing-living is permanent.
Integrating engineering and science provides opportunities for students to develop their learning and interest as they are exposed not only to science content but also to scientific research. We also want to change the idea that women are (unconsciously) incapable of science in society and eliminate the sexist approach.
Project preparation work will be done.
There will be an introductory webinar.
A pallet will be created and all partners will write their expectations about the project here.
The poster of the project will be prepared and the poster determined by the majority will be selected.
Task distribution will be made.
Creating a blog and website.
Creating a corner of curiosity in the classroom.
Classroom reading and review of Hubert Reeves’s “Oceans” and “The Jungle”
Introducing the word Science, which constitutes STEM.
Organizing science competition using Kahoot app.
Rearranging the classroom seating in accordance with the project activities. To ensure that the classroom is used as a laboratory in order to develop problem-solving skills.
Formation of student teams. Making students understand that the research process is more important than the result.
Observing animals and leaves in the natural environment. Making presentations about the observation results. Bilingual presentations will be provided for students.
Using virtual reality glasses.
Using the see, think, wonder method, students interpret pictures and create a word cloud with the mentor application.

Preparing and using plant puzzles for students to get to know and experience nature directly.
Preparation of e-safety day events.
Observing the sky. Talking about the types of clouds they see, drawing them.
Observing how seeds grow. Growing plants.
Earth Day events.
Making Science and Mathematics designs by using the Scamper technique.
Designing plants with origami.
Conducting a survey to evaluate the project process. Exchanging information on whether the project objectives have been achieved or not.
E-twinning day events
Creation of the project virtual exhibition
By bringing different disciplines together, to establish a connection between the information encountered in real life and the learned information and to ensure the realization of meaningful learning. By contributing to the development of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) literacy and STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education global entrepreneurship; to establish links between the school and the community. In addition, to enable students to make connections between the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and to apply these connections. To embody the subjects and increase the motivation of the students with the teaching that includes STEM-based activities. Students solving engineering problems in science and mathematics classes also facilitate their learning of science and mathematics.
To increase the cognitive development of children by improving their awareness, reasoning, and observational skills with nature practices. We aim to create a sense of unity and peace in children and to develop their observation skills. In this process, children’s interaction with peers and adults enriches their perceptions of objects and events in their environment, thus realizing a permanent learning process.
