OUR PROJECT WAS INVITED TO TUBITAK REGION EXHIBITION
The biotechnology project which was influenced by the doctrines of the Erasmus plus and what they have had experienced in Erasmus plus workshops of Merve Yaren Yumutgan and Enes Akyüz were invited to the regional exhibition of TUBITAK 50th High School Students Research Projects Competition held in Marmara University between 25th and 28th of February 2019. Our project in the competition with 16.679 project applicants from Turkey, was invited to the exhibition of passing the qualifying was one of 10 Biology projects. Our project, which was introduced to more than a thousand visitors, attracted great interest and received positive feedback.
WE DISSEMINATE OUR PROJECT BY SHARING EXPERIMENT EQUIPMENT
We contributed to the dissemination of our project by sharing our experiment materials obtained during our Erasmus plus project with different schools. Tarsus American College students won the Best Scientific Project and Most Authentic Project award at the “SEV Science and Social Project’s Fair” held on 10 May with their projects.

The results of the production of biodegradable plastic out of polylactic acid were multiplied in the following teacher education lessons.
- 06.03.18 in Pforzheim
- 20.03.18 in Ulm
- 08.07. – 11.07.18 in Esslingen
- 12.03. – 14.03.18 Nationwide Network of Biotechnology Highschools in Mosbach
Implementation at Thisted Gymnasium STX & HF (TG)
In January 2019 29 students at TG made a project about biohydrogen for their great midterm assignment.
They performed an experiment with producing biohydrogen by fermentation and running a fuel cell. They analyzed the gasproduction from the fermentation by gaschromatography and made an additional experiment with running a fuel cell with hydrogen form reduction of H+ by magnesium. The purpose of the last experiment was to calculate the amount of energy produced by 1 mL of hydrogen in a fuel cell and thereby estimating the amount of possible produced energy from the fermentation experiment.
Besides from discussing the results of the experiment, the assignment also included discussion of how biohydrogen can be used as a sustainable source of energy replacing energy from fossil fuels.
4 of the students and their teacher participated in the Erasmus meeting in Vienna I November 2018, and these students were able assist the other students during the experiment.
Besides from the above the teachers who participated in the Erasmus project has shared their experiences with the other biology and chemistry teachers at TG and therefor it is very likely that more project like the one above will be performed at TG in the nearest future and later on.
