Turkish and Syrian children between ages 8-15
It was aimed to develop children’s abilities such as problem analysis and solution, algorithm creation, flowchart, systematic thinking starting from the basic steps of coding and robotics.
Architecture and STE(A)M Workshop
The aim of this workshop was to strengthen social awareness and cohesion while focusing on multidimensional thinking, imagination and visual abilities of children with increased knowledge in STE(A)M.
The workshops addressed social themes such as basic environmental awareness, child-friendly-neighbourhood understanding, living together with differences, sustainable neighbourhoods, and focused on experimental and exploration-themed activities in line with the contents that children learned in their school classes.
