For the third year, High School of Math and Science Kyustendil joins the STEM Discovery Campaign initiative. This year the focus is on student projects, which are an example of real application of what has been learnt in the field of mathematics, technology, science and engineering. We present in the form of a virtual demonstration/online lecture the best projects of students from our school. We used Google Site and thematically arranged projects, related to the tagline for this year’s campaign – Sustainability and Citizenship.

About our projects

All projects are winners in different categories in the national competition “Looking for super STEM Bulgaria”, as well as other national competitions.

The resources from the Scientix Repository of resources helped us to implement the activity (online and in-class). We used the CODING IN STEM EDUCATION brochure, which can be found here: “What does a robot have to do with environmental protection?” “How do you remote control a model ship using a smartphone?” “How can you program a ‘pet’?” “IT is everywhere and coding offers many possibilities for exciting and relevant lessons” – just to name a few topics investigated in the brochure.

17th SDGs UN as a roadmap for a better future

The Sustainable Development Goals are humanity’s to-do list for a sustainable planet, a clear roadmap for a better future. This matters to each of us because we are all responsible for being a part of the change. SDGs  play a huge part  in my science classrooms. These goals can help me engage students and inform lesson plans.

Discover some of the activities and  projects I have undertaken with my students to  stay on the road to a prosperous planet.

2021 Goals Project by Take Action Global /January 25 – March 4/

The 6-week program brought together over 3,000 schools and classrooms from 118 countries to examine the UN Sustainable Development Goals and their ability to take action through shared experience and use of innovative technologies and practices. Students took  on one Global Goal and worked with students from other countries as they consider both local and global implications. In the final week, students  joined with project partners from the UN in a global online celebration, the Goals Project Day of Solutions, as they shared their learning, actions, and even inventions.

The United Nations has been offering an exclusive Virtual Tour of the UN Headquarters in NYC for all Goals Project teachers and students.
