Hacettepe STEM & Maker Lab

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

We believe STEM education should be framed by considering creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship dimensions. We would like to contribute Horizon 2020 Science with and for Society consortiums related to

  • Institutional Change to Support Responsible Research and Innovation in Research Performing and Funding Organisations
  • Embedding Responsible Research and Innovation in Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation
  • Strengthening the Science with and for Society Knowledge-Base
  • Developing Inclusive, Anticipatory Governance for Research & Innovation.

Hacettepe STEM & Maker Lab's areas of research: 

STEM & Maker Fest/Expo: Every year, we organize a STEM & Makers Fest/Expo in conjunction with STEM Teacher Conference. In 2019, we expect around 50,000 participants to engage in more than 200 workshops, 100 science shows and 100 science talks. http://www.stemandmakers.org 

Mobile STEM & Maker Lab: + 5 counties + 12 Cities + 110,000 participants

Promoting Public Engagement with STEM: 
STEM & Maker Fest/Expo: Every year, we organize a STEM & Makers Fest/Expo in conjunction with STEM Teacher Conference in Ankara.. STEM & Maker Fest/Expo is a member of European Public Engagement Association (EUSEA) http://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. http://stemalliance.center 

Promoting public understanding about STEM through popular media: 

STEM New 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.
