STEM Discovery Week 2019

I am a vice-principal and a computer science teacher from Turkey. We are organising 3 STEM week activities in 6 Nisan Anadolu Lisesi (6 Nisan Anatolian High School ) between 22.04.2019 and 28.04.2019. Our activities are now in the STEM Discovery Week 2019 Map.

1. Natural Sources

The EU’s definition of bioeconomy is “sustainable production and processing of biomass for food, health products, fibre products, industry, and energy” European Network For Forest Pedagogy, internet-platform that intends to develop as an European-wide forum for information and communication about forest pedagogics, offers basic frames of standards to describe what is required in order to deliver environmental education for sustainable development. The standard describes six steps of pedagogical approaches with activities to increase environmental maturity; learn to enjoy outdoors, experience and observe nature, understand the ecological web, understand the interplay between man and nature, make decisions on environmental issues, be responsible for nature.

Adalar STEM Activities

Adalar Public Education Center is proud to share the first experience from our STEM Discovery Week events. We had organized a series of STEAM events dedicated to the STEM Discovery Week 2019 between 13-28 April.

During the STEM Discovery Week, we organized various activities for students in order to learn about sustainable development and understand the importance of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)
 
Activity 1

First of all, we visited the Istanbul Technical University robot Olympics Center with over 90 students. The purpose of this visit was to connect our students with students from other schools. We wanted them to experience STEM applications. Our students benefited from the conferences, studied the designed robots, learned about the materials and programs of the robots in the competitions. They also had the chance to work with 3D printers and were interviewed by the students at the stands. Some students found themselves in a university environment for the first time and talked to the robot. This trip has developed their goals and it was very useful for their future.
