Teachers from all over the country participated in this two-day seminar organized by Nilgün Erentay, main NSC of Science on Stage Turkey. At the event the Science on Stage network, its activities and exemplary STEM teacher projects were presented to the participants. Also four other workshops, one fieldwork for observing sky at night and one day trekking and field work at Kaz Mountains were offered to the participants. 

Zağnospaşa Secondary School hosted this event in collaboration with Science on Stage Turkey, Balıkesir Municipality and National Education Directorate of Balıkesir Province.

At the first day of the seminar, two presentations and three workshops were realised: Examples of Science on Stage projects at schools, an Arduino Coding workshop for teachers, an outdoor game for teachers at nature called 'Magic Tower' and the workshop 'Ebru Art'.

Turkey: Seminar with beautiful mathematics in Bolu

Meltem Yontar, one of the teachers of the Turkish Science on Stage delegation for the upcoming European festival in Debrecen, carried out a workshop about her project at a training seminar in Bolu which was organised by Nilgün Erentay, head of Science on Stage Turkey. The workshop focused on the number Phi, which was considered to be the number of beauty in ancient Egypt and Greece, hidden in many beautiful things of life. In fact everything that looks good to the human eye is in proportion to the number of Phi (1,618). On this basis the participants were asked to make their own rugs with colourful rug motifs. Participating teachers designed their own studies with small groups they formed. In the mathematical proportions of the rugs they discovered whether or not there was a Phi number.
