What is the Project ?
The project is developed to help children’s math & science skills in Turkey where PISA scores have shown that Turkey is 44th country among 65 countries in math and science and getting worse throughout the years. The project will take 3-5 years to reach 40,000 children in 37 different cities of Turkey. 3 different layers of children will be targeted (1-2 grade, 3-4 grade and 5-7 grade) with creative math & science programs to stimulate the learning process of students. The programs will be developed together with the experts and delivered through the volunteer trainers of TEGV in the targeted cities. Programs will be supported with e-learning modules as well as hands on learning modules to combine both learning models.
