To reach out to Anatolia, we started the Anatolian Maker Movement (AMM) 4 years ago, visiting schools in 20 cities including Eskisehir, Mersin, Kars, Edirne, & Balikesir, reaching 3870 kids. In our projects, we provide Scratch, coding, & game design education to kids, and assist them to learn about STEM through the informative games that we created. While they have fun playing these games, they also learn about influential scientists, engineering tools, and robotics terminology in an effective way. So far, 400 children in 4 different projects have learned from these games, & they are all donated to each school we visit.
In every school we go to, we also bring at least 100 books with us, which we gather from our schoolmates, team members, & sponsors. We also bring the book “Small Robot’s Big Ideas” which we have written and published in order to inspire more kids about robotics and STEM. Our sponsor & partner Cirak Atolye provides us with STEM-related books for children to be used & distributed in our projects. Until today, we’ve established 17 libraries, donating 2000+ books in the cities where we execute our projects.
