Abstract


In this research, it has been aimed to develop a STEM center model by examining the situation analysis of STEM centers in Tukey. The general scanning method is used from the scanning methods. In this study, the data were obtained from the “Semi-structured Interview Form” and “Structured Observation” notes and the data were analyzed by descriptive analysis technique. The working group is consisted of three separate STEM center in Turkey and the teachers working in these centers. As a result of the research, it was determined that the STEM centers examined differ from administrative and structural aspects and they are structured on the basis of public services and teaching. There is also no framework legislation that sets out the working procedures and principles of STEM education centers. The common points of the STEM education centers examined during the research process are also limited. It is proposed to establish a legislation by determining the criteria governing the establishment and operation of STEM centers in the direction of the data obtained from the research.


Keywords
