Ortaokul Fen Bilgisi Dersleri için Deney Aletleri: MEB Ders Aletleri Yapım Merkezi ve Nesibe Aydın Eğitim Kurumları İşbirliğiyle

This project was carried out at Middle East Technical University, Department of Industrial Design in collaboration with Turkish Ministry of Education Course Equipment Production Center and Nesibe Aydın Educational Institutions, during the 2020-2021 Spring semester, as part of the ID202 Industrial Design II course. In this project, students were expected to work in teams to design experiment equipment for science education in secondary schools (5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades) by considering possible scenarios and experiment activities at these grade levels. Different topics were assigned to each team and they were expected to develop the scenario and the experiment activity based on the learning objectives of the topic. While developing design solutions, the students were required to consider the learning context, the learner’s physiological and psychological capabilities and needs, and integrating fun and gamification in the learning activity. Moreover since this equipment is for the classroom environment, long-term durability, robustness and safety are critical requirements that were considered in design.


Hands-on building practices in architectural education : METU summer construction practices
Turgay, Özce; Gür, Berin Fatma; Department of Architecture (2005)
This thesis explores the position of hands-on building practices in architectural education by focusing on METU Summer Construction Practices (ARCH190), which has been conducted in the rural sites of Turkey since 1958. It is believed that the summer construction practice is a tool of education to acquire knowledge of architecture by building 1-to-1 scale constructions. METU Summer Construction Practices are examined by asking the questions of أwhat is learnedؤ and أhow is learnedؤ in order to understand bot...

The field study indicate...
Intelligent infrastructures: anatomy of the METU Campus
Ağırsoy, Ömer Faruk; Savaş Sargın, Ayşen; Department of Architecture (2022-2-02)
Designed and constructed with the ambition of generating “a small city” in the 1960s, Middle East Technical University (METU) Campus is facilitated with a sophisticated infrastructural design. This thesis focuses on the complex infrastructural systems, needs, and problems of the campus. The goal is to re-investigate the university campus as an early model for modern, sustainable, and liveable urban environments. This thesis provides documentation and representation of campus infrastructure from campus scale...
GAP: An Irrigation And Development Project In Turkey
Taraklı, Duran (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 1989)
The Southeastern Anatolia Project (GAP) in Turkey, which was initiated in 1976 with the Karakaya Dam consists of thirteen major projects. Twenty-two dams and seventeen hydroelectric power plants (HPP) with a total capacity of 7 561 MW will be constructed as part of it. GAP will provide irrigation for 1641282 hectares of land and will have an annual output of 25 003 GWh of power (1). Turkey has about 27.7 million hectares (ha) of land suitable for agriculture. Surveys show that it is economically feasible to...
