The Voltaic battery

 

Seppe Hermans

I teach my students to make videos of their experiments. It helps them remember what they did and it's a fun way to integrate media skills into STEM. In this video they experimented with voltaic cells and explain what happens.

Celebrating Spring & STEM

"We did it ourselves!" is the moto of the event. The event facilitated students' interest in science and environment by participating in entertaining science projects. STEM event challenged students to solve real problems that exist around us. Students were focused on real-world problems and worked on developing solutions which aimed to improve skills such as cooperation, communication and team work.

Materials

Computer science week

The main objective of the event "Computer Science Week" is to promote computer science in primary education, to improve students knowledge in computer science and coding and to increase interest among students to study Computer. During the event different activities like QR code competition and Scratch workshop were organized.

Different kinds of bread production: Physics and sensory properties

This research project was carried out by 40 students. During the event students learnt about the nutritional components of different types of cereal flours, differences between dry and fresh yeast and chemical reaction produced when bread is fermenting. At Miguel Hernández University (UMH) students baked their own type of bread! And in the Interactive and Didactic Science Museum MUDIC students participated in a Health workshop.

Materials

Eco product

Students from School "Sv. Kliment Ohridski "carried out a research on how plastic bags are consumed in a household waste. They visited the factory for plastic bags production, where they learned the method of eco-wrap production and how to reuse plastic bags in order to preserve nature from the plastic pollution.

From school to college through STEM inquiry

This event took place at BEITH BERL college for education and teaching. 300 students from secondary school were invited to Science& Technology labs of Beith Berl college and there they were participated in inquiry based learning program. Students were exposed to the importance of STEM faculties and careers.

Materials

Incredible underwater world - Turtles, sharks, whales and coral

The event "INCREDIBLE UNDERWINATER WORLD" informs students between 10-18 years old about marine life. Students were given an overview of some most iconic and loved marine creatures: turtles, sharks, whales and coral. But what are coral creatures? What is the perfect habitat for turtles? How many different shark species are there? Where are the most whales located? Students got the answers!

Inspiring Student's & Science Careers

The educational program on science careers entitled "Can we see …the black holes?" was implemented. Students worked like real scientists in order to characterize an object as a possible black hole. Teachers informied students about STEM careers and latest developments in astronomy, astrophysics and science. All the actions taken during the event are several parts of ONE ACTION towards Inspiring Students in Science Careers.

Spotlight on STEM Careers

The event was focused on STEM careers from three different perspectives across three key stages and age ranges. It was held across a fortnight and involved 3 different activities during both National Careers and British Science Week 2017 to highlight numerous career options available to students.

Materials

STEM - Bringing together Science & Technology

A discussion about STEM careers and the various technology that we can find around us took place in class. Students discussed different technologies that they use in the computer laboratory.

Materials

STEM - Where Science, Technology & Math are more than a subject

In the beginning of the event students were introduced to the indoors and outdoors activities related to Science, Technology and Mathematics. A brainstorming session about the various types of plants and their seeds was held in the lab. Students got to know that there are thousands of species of plants. In order to explore and investigate some of the facts they learned in the class, student participated in outdoors activity.

Using an Arduino board to study the human nervous system

Utilising the working sheets and the instructions of a free, volunteer-led, community-based programming club called CoderDojo Nafpaktos, the students of the first grade of Panou high school studied the effect of the audio-visual stimuli on the reaction time of fellow students and some of the school's academic staff with the use of low cost open technologies. For a biology lesson concerning the nervous system and in cooperation with the school's IT department the students programmed a circuit the combines a temperature detector, an LED lamp, a speaker, a button and an AUDUINO board.
