Schools and teachers should help students understand the challenges and empower them to take action and if they play this important role, they need ongoing support with inspirational examples and professional development.
In our project, within the scope of the needs analysis surveys and SWOT analysis results conducted by all our partner institutions, the need to use sustainable development goals, STEM education method and e-learning platforms are seen.
