The Özay Günsel Children’s University is continuing bringing children with scientists under one roof, to improve their knowledge about nature and the world, at an early age.
As part of its curriculum for the ongoing session, the students were given an opportunity to familiarize with the trees and plants in nature and collect samples and receive information about fragrant plants. The visit to a horse farm provided the students with the opportunity to learn about the facts of horseback riding and gain experience about horse riding. Within the scope of the program, students participated in learning activities enabling them to identify and improve their mathematical knowledge and skills.
Within the scope of the training program, which started with morning sports, World Group students participated in an event entitled “Forest in My Notebook” and familiarised themselves with the trees and plants in the surrounding area by touring the Near East University Campus. They collected samples from trees and plants to create their own collections by labeling the species in their notebooks.
The Sun Group students participated in a Mathematics Workshop based on activities regarding basic mathematics. Within the scope of the workshop, students participated in activities designed to enable them to easily understand the most basic concepts of mathematics. The Sun Group students had an event under the title “Do You Know the Rights of the Child?” Within the scope of the event, the group students learned about Children’s Rights stipulated by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and drew pictures depicting these rights.
