Hacettepe STEM & Maker Lab

Hacettepe STEM & Maker Lab was established in 2009. H-STEM & Maker Lab has involved in several EC FP7 and Horizion 2020 projects (e.g., S-TEAMSAILSMaScil, MOST) and Erasmus+ projects (STING, ENSITE and INSTEM).

We do believe that formal, informal and non-formal education should engineer the future of a society by empowering their imagination, creativity and innovation. We would like to contribute Horizon 2020 Science with and for Society consortiums related to:

  • Open schooling and collaboration on science education,
  • Grounding RRI in society with a focus on citizen science * Science education outside the classroom,
  • The gender perspective of science, technology and innovation (STI) in dialogue with third countries,
  • Gender Equality Academy and dissemination of gender knowledge across Europe,
  • Innovators of the future: bridging the gender gap,
  • Exploring and supporting citizen science,
  • Hands-on citizen science and frugal innovation.

Hacettepe STEM & Maker Lab's areas of research: 

STEM & Maker Fest/Expo: Every year, we organize a STEM & Makers Fest/Expo. STEM & Maker Fest/Expo is a member of European Public Engagement Association (EUSEA). STEM & Makers Fest/Expo aims to promote  public engagement with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It unites STEM practitioners, researchers, policy makers and public to enhance the quality of STEM education and broaden participation in STEM. So far, more than 200,000 participants from different age groups have engaged with STEM & Makers activities. The festivals have been held in 10 different provinces and the number of these provinces and people is increasing day by day with your contributions. STEM & Makers Fest/Expo has been organized in collaboration among universities, schools, local authorities and industry. //www.stemandmakers.org

Turkish STEM Alliance, founded in 2015, is an independent body of a network for promoting public engagement with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It unites STEM practitioners, researchers, policymakers and public to enhance the quality of STEM education and broaden participation in STEM. Turkish STEM Alliance consists of several different members from science centres, science museums, PD centres, NGOs, STEM centres, companies, research centres and public organizations. Turkish STEM Alliance is a member of EU STEM Coalition. www.stemalliance.center
 

Promoting public understanding about STEM through popular media: 

STEM NewS Aggregator: www.bilimiletisimi.com (in Turkish), www.bilimiletisimi.com/en (in English), which aggregates science, technology, health, education and business news content from a variety of sources (e.g. online newspapers and popular magazines) and feeds them to its users.
