Students from KYAL,repeated Eratosthenes' experiment of measuring the circumference of the earth in Istanbul after many years. Together with their geography teachers, they measured the circumference of the earth using simple tools such as a 1-metre stick, compass and metre, and with the help of mathematical operations and geometry knowledge.

FROM CLOTHES to RUGS

"WST" and Korkmaz Yigit Anatolian High School/Turkiye  developed the project on the sustainability of clothes . Clothes that are old and sometimes old go to waste without being worn. We thought about how we could benefit both the environment and the economy by recycling these clothes. We took waste materials that would go to waste from production facilities. We turned these into ropes. We created our own rug patterns. We also examined Turkish rug motifs, and by combining our own patterns with Turkish rug motifs, we created 21st century patterns again. We made rugs with these patterns we created. We also made an AR application by developing a 3D model for our clay.

We would like to thank ReyhanÖzgür, TurkishConsulateGeneralinNewYork for hosting us, DeclanKirrane for giving us a place at the Science Summit UNGA78, our speakers for sharing their valuable experiences with us, and our guests who attended our session and accompanied us.

SUSTAINABLE  CLOTHES

"As ,Women Science Teachers" portal and Korkmaz Yigit Anatolian High School from /TURKİYE ,we developed the project on the sustainability of clothes . First of all, we examined the clothes that are our cultural heritage. We worked on the sustainability of fashion by combining 100-150 years old clothes with today's fashion. In addition, we examined not only Turkish clothes but also clothes in Europe (D'orsay Museum - Paris). Then we created new clothes with the cultural heritage of the past. In order for the clothes to be worn for a long time, we made them compatible with 5-10-15 ages
