The feedback will be given during: Demonstration of exercises in the hands-on lab activity. Demonstration of Mini Hackathon Challenge.
Completion of Lab and Mini Hackathon Challenge link Video
Peer to peer to students of different classes ( In Progress ) Mini Hackathon Challenge the winners are: 1 B class, a female team 1 A class, a male team Finally the jury (formed by the students of the other classes) will decide the winning team.
Research in the STEM field states that female role models are very important for STEM career fields (Hiil, C., Milgram, D. & Zachmann, K). For this reason, the science woman who is a role model for our students, Prof. Dr. We chose Imran HATAY PATIR. Selcuk University Faculty of Science Department of Biotechnology Prof. Dr. I. Hatay Patır told our female students about her life story and her work to become a science woman and answered our questions. Science activities were carried out by his assistants in her laboratory. We visited the scientist at Selçuk University (23/3/22). Selcuk University is located in Konya. The interview with 26 female students lasted 120 minutes. The age of the students is approximately 13-14.
WHO İS THE PROF. DR. İMRAN HATAY PATIR?
Prof. Dr. İmren Hatay Patır was born in Tekirdağ in 1983. She graduated from Selcuk University, Department of Chemistry in 2003. She received her master’s degree in the same field in 2006. He completed his doctorate in chemistry at EPFL Institute in Lausanne, Switzerland, and Selcuk University, Institute of Science and Technology, with the support of TUBITAK’s Domestic – International Integrated PhD Scholarship Program in 2010. She received the title of associate professor in 2013. She received the title of professor in 2019. She completed his project titled “Hydrogen Production from the Decomposition of Water Using Sunlight”, which he is the coordinator of and supported by TUBITAK, in 2018. In 2016, he was deemed worthy of an award within the framework of the Turkish Academy of Sciences (TÜBA) Outstanding Young Scientists Award Program (GEBİP) in the field of chemistry. In 2017, she won the L’oréal Turkey & Unesco Turkish National Commission Young Scientist Support Award for her project on producing hydrogen from water using nanocomposite materials containing metal oxide and carbon nanotubes.
