KIDS WILL LEARN BIOLOGY IN A FUN WAY
Children will learn about types of species, their evolution, and formation in a fun way. Asst. Prof. Dr. Seçkin Eroğlu, Lecturer, Department of Genetics and Bioengineering, Izmir University of Economics, is trying to find answers for types of species in “Bilbi ile Bilim” (Bilbi and Science), the first of the children’s book series which he co-authored with Deniz Hasret.
Asst. Prof. Dr. Eroğlu stated that their main purpose was to instill a love of science in children, and their book, a coloring book at the same time, offered examples of comparative anatomy, zoology, and ecology. By offering scientific knowledge in a fun way, they aimed to attract the attention of children in science, indicated Asst. Prof. Dr. Eroğlu and he said, “How do the fossils shed light on the past? What helps diversify the types of species? What are the differences between people who lived in the past and people of the present time? We searched for answers to these questions in the book. We also talked about lines of evolutionary descent of different species and how new species are formed based on evidence from different disciplines. We encourage children to think and reason rather than make them memorize”.
Learning through fun was one of the most effective methods of learning in education, reminded Asst. Prof. Dr. Eroğlu and he said, “The University supported us with the publishing of the book. We hope that parents read the book to their children. We also give detailed information about the subjects on the internet site of the book to help parents answer possible questions coming from their children. By doing so, we hope to get parents involved in the subject as well. Parents, too, will get a chance to learn and update their knowledge along with their children. You can access the book on social media by typing in ‘Bilbi ile Bilim’”.
‘Space and artificial intelligence is next’
Co-author of the book, Deniz Hasret said, “The book is based on the curious bear Bilbi one day deciding to count how many types of species are around him. By realizing the richness of species on earth, Bilbi decides to consult the IUE Department of Genetics and Bioengineering. We plan on focusing on different topics such as space, genetically modified organisms, and artificial intelligence on our future books”.
