A STEM ACTIVITY FOR GIFTED STUDENTS: BIODEGRADABLE SMART PACKAGING DESIGN THROUGH PHYSICAL COMPUTING

Öz:
The study aims to present how to apply a STEM activity in which physical computing principles and computational thinking processes are used as a differentiation practice to be used in the education of gifted students. In the activity, the students designed smart packaging that will provide healthy long-term storage of foods to solve the greenhouse gas emission problem caused by intensive plastic production. The activity was carried out with eight gifted students studying in 7th -9th grades. The students investigated the factors that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and synthesized biodegradable polymers during the inquiry process. In the engineering design process, they determined the most suitable solution for packaging design in the polymer synthesis they carried out using different plant extracts with antibacterial properties. They developed a smart packaging design using physical computing in this process. During the STEM activity, the students used computational thinking, engineering design, and inquiry process.

ÖZEL YETENEKLİ ÖĞRENCİLER İÇİN STEM ETKİNLİĞİ: FİZİKSEL PROGRAMLAMA YOLUYLA BİYOLOJİK OLARAK PARÇALANABİLEN AKILLI AMBALAJ TASARIMI

Öz:
Bu çalışma, özel yetenekli öğrencilerin eğitiminde kullanılmak üzere bir farklılaştırma uygulaması olarak fiziksel programlama ilkeleri ve bilgi işlemsel düşünme sürecinin kullanıldığı bir STEM etkinliğinin nasıl uygulanacağını sunmayı amaçlamaktadır. Etkinlikte öğrenciler, yoğun plastik üretiminden kaynaklanan sera gazı emisyonu sorununu çözmek için gıdaların uzun süre sağlıklı bir şekilde saklanmasını sağlayacak akıllı ambalajlar tasarladılar. Etkinlik 7-9. sınıflarda öğrenim gören sekiz üstün yetenekli öğrenci ile gerçekleştirildi. Öğrenciler, sorgulama sürecinde sera gazı emisyonlarını azaltacak faktörleri ve biyobozunur polimerleri sentezlediler. Mühendislik tasarım sürecinde antibakteriyel özelliklere sahip farklı bitki özleri kullanarak gerçekleştirdikleri polimer sentezinde ambalaj tasarımı için en uygun çözümü belirlediler. Bu süreçte fiziksel programlamayı da kullanarak akıllı ambalaj tasarımı gerçekleştirdiler. STEM etkinliği sırasında öğrenciler bilgi işlemsel düşünme, mühendislik tasarımı, sorgulama sürecini kullandılar.
