Children Meet Science with the Mobile Mathematics Museum

Written by TR Dergisi

Mobile Mathematics Museum launched by Yunus Emre Enstitüsü within the framework of the Scientific and  Academic Cooperation of Turkey Project (TABİP), brings children together with science.

Launched by Yunus Emre Enstitüsü under the auspices of the Turkish Presidency, Scientific and Academic Cooperation of Turkey Project (TABİP) organizes various programs for creative individuals to apply new ideas and for young scientists to connect with each other. Mobile Mathematics Museum is one of Enstitü’s scientific projects that aims to educate new scientists and to teach mathematics by integrating it with social life. The primary goal
of the Mobile Mathematics Museum is teaching mathematics by materializing it, making it popular, and demonstrating its functionality in everyday life. Accordingly, there is instructional material on usage of each mathematical formula and their functions in real life in every station on the truck. Each of the 35 stations symbolizes and illustrates different mathematical formulas.

Launched by Yunus Emre Enstitüsü, the project targets Syrian children under protection in temporary shelters in Turkey, and is projected to reach nearly 45 thousand individuals between ages 6-18. Mobile Mathematics Museum set off from Ankara on February 1st, 2018, to reach young and creative individuals and stopped over at Aydın
Thales Mathematics Museum, one of Europe’s most comprehensive mathematics museums. Mobile Mathematics Museum that stopped over at Adana Sarıçam Temporary Shelter regarded as the world’s largest container city; will meet with children in Osmaniye, Hatay, Gaziantep, Kahramanmaraş, Şanlıurfa, Mardin, Adıyaman, Malatya and Ankara. The project is of importance for promotion of Turkey’s interest and contributions in science, mathematics
and life sciences. At the same time, the project aims to promote Turkey in the field of science and to strengthen Turkey’s positive image.
