Sports Science is a new and evolving industry. There is a great potential in this domain which will be realised by capturing and analysing the performance data of the elite athletes and displaying all relevant information to them for better decision making and performance improvement. Establishing reliable systems to achieve performance monitoring in the sports science domain require hardware sensors, firmware and software algorithms work coherently. Such complex systems having also cyber-physical characteristics would bring their own challenges. In this paper, first we present the challenges related with the domain and the development environment based on our experiences in the STATSports Company. Then, we discuss how we adopted agile software development practices to overcome these challenges in a phased approach.


Exploring representation of nature of science aspects in science textbooks
Yamak, Yeliz; Çakıroğlu, Jale; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2009)
The aim of this study was to examine middle school science textbooks according to some criteria in terms of nature of science (NOS). A total of three middle school science textbooks in 6th, 7th and 8th grade and two biology units were analyzed in each textbook. In the 6th grade science textbooks, “Reproduction, Development and Growth in Living Beings”and “Systems in Our Body” units, in the 7th grade science textbook, “Systems in Our Body” and “Human and Environment” units, in the 8th grade science textbook,...
Integrating STEM Education: Perceived barriers and facilitators
Taşcı, Duygu; Öztekin, Ceren (null; 2017-05-21)
The purpose of this research is to uncover obstacles science teachers face regarding integrating STEM in their science course. Data were mainly gathered from 4 experienced science teachers through in depth interviews. They were also requested to draw a picture of their visualization of STEM and they were asked explain their drawings, data were then analyzed by categorizing barriers avoiding STEM integration. Three categories were emerged as teacher-oriented barriers, students-oriented barriers and situation...
Technology Education In Preschool An Applied Sample Lesson
Turgut, Gökben; Tunga, Yeliz; Kışla, Tarık (2016-01-01)
Science and technology is rapidly changing and developing in our ages. Human knowledge is being renewed and changed every day. This situation makes technology integration which accelerates accessing information into educational systems inevitable. Developing ICT skills of children starting from early ages gains importance considering the fact that those skills support the ability and attitude to use electronic media their future lives. For this reason, European Union gave a significant place to education of...

Nanotechnology is an avant-garde field of scientific research that revolutionizes technological advancements in the present world. It is a cutting-edge scientific approach that has undoubtedly a plethora of functions in controlling environmental pollutants for the welfare of the ecosystem. However, their unprecedented utilization and hysterical release led to a huge threat to the soil microbiome. Nanoparticles(NPs) hamper physicochemical properties of soil along with microbial metabolic activities within rh...
Co-Design Practice in Industrial Design Education in Turkey A Participatory Design Project
Yalman Yıldırım, Zeynep (2015-01-01)
The evolution in design research has shifted from a user-centered design approach to co-design approach. With co-designing, roles of designers and users have changed. In growing co-creation and co-design notions, user is seen as a partner, not as a passive object of study. In current undergraduate industrial design education in Turkey, user research is done in limited steps during design process. User observations that are required for students during their design processes are done outside of studio course...
