Grade(s): Middle School
I studied Social Studies in the faculty of teaching in Karadeniz Technical University from 2000 to 2004. Following the graduation I began my professional career as a teacher of Social Studies in Private Marmara Evleri Ihlas Primary School where I worked four years and resumed my career in Private Bahcelievler Ihlas Primary School where I currently am in charge of the Social Studies Department.
I became third place winner in the competition, " Teachers are producing-Teaching a Lesson" which was organized in association with the Ministry of Education and SEBIT Inc. across Turkey in March, 2011 and was granted the invitation to "Digital Educational Technology Program" ( DEPT ) held in Arizona State University. I attended the ISTE'12 which took place in San Diego, USA in June 2012. Four projects of mine have been accepted for the "International Applied Educational Congress" in the Middle East Technical University in September 2012. I also submitted another project to ISTE'13, which has also been accepted. I am a member of the ISTE Young Educator Network. I have also been taking active part in TEDxIhlasCollegeED event. I could humbly define my self as a passionate and devoted seeker of development and innovation in education.
Bill Nye is a man with a mission: to foster a scientifically literate society by helping people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Nye has spent the past 20 years educating students young and old about science and understands the importance of keeping minds active after the last school bell rings. “Learning can happen anywhere and at anytime – the important thing is that it should never stop,” Nye said. “We’ve put together fun, free and easy activities that will make this the summer of learning versus the summer filled with the dreaded words ‘I’m bored.’ ” AN EARLY KNACK FOR HOW THINGS WORK Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill has done most of his life. Growing up in Washington, D.C., he spent afternoons and summers de-mystifying math for his classmates. While working for Boeing in Seattle, Bill combined his love of science with his flair for comedy. After winning a Steve Martin look-alike contest, he became an engineer by day and a stand-up comic by night. Eventually, Bill made the transition to comedy writer and performer on Seattle’s home-grown ensemble comedy show “Almost Live.” This is where “Bill Nye the Science Guy®” was born. The 18-time Emmy Award-winning show appeared before Saturday Night Live and later on Comedy Central. During this time, he also wrote five kids’ books about science, including his latest title, “Bill Nye’s Great Big Book of Tiny Germs.” BROADENING HIS MISSION Bill’s passion for math and science translated into a love of space. His role as CEO of The Planetary Society, the world’s large space interest organization, has taken him across the globe. And one thing Bill is very proud of is the MarsDials, two sundials on residing on Mars he created with Cornell scientists. America’s favorite stand-up scientist hasn’t changed much from that kid growing up in Washington, DC. He still rides his bike to work. He’ll pull out his Periodic Table of the Elements from his wallet. And his drive for helping others understand science is as strong as ever.
