The last meeting of the first year of the project for "Met Inside" took place at the Polish partner school Zespol Szkol w Zychlinie, Poland Our representative was made up of six students and two teachers who worked and lived together with the partner school groups composed of boys and girls from Turkey, Poland, Spain, Portugal and Lithuania for a week. Works and experiences were carried out relating to the teaching of STEM, science, technology, engineering and mathematics through practical activities of science and robotics. The groups also carried out activities at the university and visited the Polish capital.
MET INSIDE Project’s 3rd Meeting held in Poland.Zespol Szkol w Zychlinie was the host school of this event.The 3rd Meeting had lots of challenges again as regards to MET INSIDE tasks.The students in each country presented their videos they prepared before about their E-stem related activities like “Save the Marine Life” ,” The House of Mother Nature” and robotic activities like “Pianist Robot with Ev3”, “Building Drawbridges with Ev3” and “Projectile Launcher with Ev3”. Except from these activities,we also visited Lodz Univertisity to make students have deeper knowledge in Arduino.
During the meeting, works were presented by groups in their schools, for example robots made with Mindstorm lego kits for the construction of an elevator or lift for the disabled, a self-sufficient ecological home with zero impact and various ideas and solutions to clean up the sea from waste.
The ideas were sketched on paper by the students in the classroom and then transformed into virtual objects designed in three dimensions.
The best ideas among our boys were those for a house that produces food with a roof garden and electricity through panels, wind turbines and floats that take advantage of the wave motion if the house is near the sea and boats with or without crew for clean up the sea. Crewed boats are floating houses where volunteers would live for a few weeks while cleaning up stretches of sea.
