“Adventure Begins in Nature-Forest School”
The 122B652 “Adventure Begins in Nature-Forest School” project under the direction of PAU Education Faculty Mathematics and Science Education Department Science Education Department Lecturer Assoc. Dr. Fatma Taşkın Ekici was deemed worthy of support by TUBITAK. In the project, it was aimed for students who grew up disconnected from nature for different reasons, to have the opportunity to get to know themselves and their environment in forest schools, and to raise awareness about the environment. Activities will be held at the forest school to contribute to the development of students' personal, affective and life skills and to help them become self-confident, risk-taking, courageous, decision-making skills, strong communication and team spirit.
Activities within the scope of the project consist of five titles: “activities to get to know the forest holistically”, “artistic activities”, “application activities”, “game-based activities” and “outdoor sports activities”. Project activities are planned to be held in the first week of September (5-11 September 2022).
