What does STEM mean?
Is STEM important or not! If STEM is important that’s why!
What can be done within the STEM for teachers and also for
What kind of activities can be carried out with using STEM?
What does Inquary Based Learning mean?
What kind of stages does IBL has?
How can be configured a science course with using
What does Formative Assessment mean?
Formative Assessment is important or not! That’s why!
What did we do?
Firstly, STEM teachers were educated on STEM after that they
educated their students on STEM.
It has been carried out 10 training courses to STEM teachers within
the project up to now.
480 STEM teachers took advantage of from this Project.
Each training events took two days which are related STEM.
Teachers tried their students’ realising their potential.
Teachers carried out some activities with their students.
Crazy experiments on science education,
National Conference on STEM
To see pojects’ results on STEM,
To gather researchers, STEM teachers, academicians, students and their parents,
To support each of Professional expert’s experience,
