SDW 2018 event in Azerbaijan-Teacher trainings

“SDW 2018” events for the science teachers from different regions of Azerbaijan were organised, including training activities in science and robotics. During the training activities from 11:00h to 18:00h, teachers learned how to build Arduinio, robot through programming, ICT skills, and effective STEM lesson plans. Nearly 50 teachers of the “STEM  in Azerbaijan” project actively participated in this event, organised at ADA University in Baku.

 

Why is Novruz a holiday of STEM?

Novruz is a seasonal holiday symbolizing the awakening of nature. The features of this holiday are all connected to STEM. That’s why we can say that Novruz is a STEM holiday. I wish success to teachers who joined our project. Hopefully, we will work on a mutually beneficial project for our students and other schools from different regions. School No 221 from Baku is preparing for SDW 2018 with great pleasure. Here are some links to event videos:

“STEM holiday Novruz” as part of “STEM in Azerbaijan” project

STEM holiday – Novruz is full of refreshing nature. We’ll celebrate Novruz STEM traditions with all students of our republic Azerbaijan. The holiday of Novruz, which marks the coming of a new astronomical year and the reawakening of nature, has always been the Azerbaijani people’s most cherished holiday. But according to tradition, people begin to prepare for this holiday from the last month of winter, continue the holiday celebrations with the arrival of the equinox and carry on celebrating into the New Solar Year. Novruz in Azerbaijan has always been a spring holiday that celebrates the revival of nature, moral purity and equality. It was and remains primarily a holiday of the Sun and its earthly representation, Fire. There are a lot of STEM events throughout the Festival of Novruz.

The STEM Azerbaijan project was one of the official partner projects of STEM Discovery week 2018. Within the framework of the international project, we intend to implement the STEM holiday Novruz project together with the teachers who have been named STEM teachers of the republic. Our project has been officially added to the SDW18 – Activities’ map.
