Aviation and STEM Education Network : Ready to Fly !

Title : Aviation and STEM Education Network : Ready to Fly !

Category : Futute Tech, Education,

Target Group : High school teachers, high school students between 14-18 years old.

Project Aims :

According to the comprehensive research conducted by different organisations towards the STEM labor force expectation in 2014, it is predicted that the labor force areas will increase accordingly to the STEM areas within the next 5 years. Recently, we often heard the concepts, Industry 4.0 and digitalization require advanced STEM knowledge. USA is one of the world’s leading high-technology exports (17%) and the proportion of schools that provide STEM education in the USA is 19%. This rate is gradually increasing as the result of the action plan that was put into action in 2009. When we examine Europe, we see that this ratio is 12% in high technology-exporting countries such as Germany and France and it increases day by day. Despite some private schools carry out qualified studies on STEM Education.

“Aviation and STEM Education Network: Ready to Fly!” Project aims to produce an innovative STEM Curriculum and tools that can be used extensively in public high schools in Europe, starting from this analysis. In this context, it develops international cooperation and aims to create concrete effect by combining university and private sector experience with Ministry of National Education, which is a decision maker and implementer. Innovative and high-tech STEM curriculum and tools will be developed with the support of Virtual Reality technology in the aerospace industry, one of the world’s fastest developing and high-tech sectors. These tools will be applied to high school students with practical modeling of the aircraft.

Outputs :

  • Aviation & STEM Education High School Curriculum
  • Ready to Fly! Software

Changemakers PRO : The Bridge to Silicon Valley

Title : Changemakers PRO : The Bridge to Silicon Valley

Category : Entrepreneurship and Startups, Future Tech

Target Group : Engineering faculty students between 18-25 years old.

Project Aims :

In today which is named as technological era, the most important entrepreneurship area is “Technological Entrepreneurship.” Promoting of technological entrepreneurship as an entrepreneurship area with the highest added-value has a key importance in terms of sustainable development aims of EU. Today, `booking.com` the biggest accommodation supplier in the world has NO hotels and again UBER the biggest transportation network has NO vehicles on their own. This is pretty inspiring to unify qualified entrepreneurship with up-to-date opportunities.Supporting entrepreneurship, especially technological entrepreneurship, should be one of our indispensables on the behalf of strengthening competitiveness, providing sustainable development, and reducing unemployment in EU Unfortunately it is not possible to talk about an extensive “entrepreneurship ecosystem” for young people in some EU countries yet.”Consequently young people’s getting support from this ecosystem and making a difference is lower than targeted level especially when compared to developed countries.”Changemakers PRO : The Bridge to Silicon Valley” is prepared based on this needs.We will combine EU Technical University’s extensive experience on technology with the institutions who have similar experiences in international field from USA which are one of the most advanced countries on technologic innovation and entrepreneurship in the world.(Germany is 5. ,USA is 4.)Also, we will develop an ecosystem to enable youngs to make difference on international scale by promoting them to technologic innovation with local and from EU exprienced partner organizastions. EU’s one of the first Technology Innovation Center that targets youngs, CBI LAB ‘s facilities settled in campus, will be used actively to support this concept.

Outputs :

  • TRIZ For Entrepreneurs Education Program
  • Changemakers PRO: The Bridge to Silicon Valley” Practical Entrepreneurship Programme

Activities :

  • TRIZ Edu. Program That Specialized on Techno Enterprise Ideas
  • Idea To Demo - Applied Demo Producting Programme / Maker Workshops

Empowering Young Farmers; Agriculture and Innovation Center

Title : Empowering Young Farmers; Agriculture and Innovation Center

Category : Sustainable Development, Future Tech

Target Group : Young Farmers, Institutions in The Status of Authority for Agriculture

Project Aims :

It is known that Europe developing countries structural problems in agriculture sector are labor, land, water, capital, data inadequacy, agriculture-environment relation and lack of R&D. Based on this fact, following actions must be taken;

  1. Raising the education level of the current workforce working in agriculture
  2. Encouraging young population to remain in agricultural production and taking actions to ensure the employment of the young population in agriculture
  3. Taking quick action when transfering all kinds of information related to agricultural innovation (technological or legal regulations etc.) to the agriculture sector

Empowering Young Farmers; Agriculture and Innovation Center project has been prepared based on these 3 specific questions. We will establish an agricultural and innovation center with national and international public, civil society, academia and private sector partnership within the project. The center will contribute to rural development in a sustainable way by supporting young farmers in a comprehensive manner. It will support the EU agriculture policies. It will transfer international good practices. Also, it will produce innovative technological studies and ensure that it is applied locally.
