In fact, we mentioned that bacteria would become  very handy, helpful and inteligent “machines” in appropiate conditions. We  listed the former experiments and parts that took place in iGEM competition and  gave some examples about what to do next. <br>
+
-
              We also talked about iGEM  competition and its international character. In the article attending of 130  teams throughout the world, seperation of competition to stages by continents  and the teams from Turkey attending to iGEM were mentioned. The article took  place in the magazine published on July- August- September 2011.&nbsp; Considering its innovation and presentation  for synthetic biology and iGEM competition, we found this work too important.</p></td>

+
-
                engineering is!<br>
+
-
                        <br>
+
-
                Our one of the most important goals as a team Fatih_Turkey is to introduce iGEM
+
-
                and Synthetic
+
-
                Biology to the students in Turkey. But we did not want to limit ourselves
+
-
                by choosing only same age groups and we decided to tell the
+
-
                children, too. </p>
+
-
                  <p align="justify">Synthetic biology has been told them by consultating
+
-
                    with several pre-school institutions. Also
+
-
                    we told them that bacteria do not cause only diseases ,in fact, they can also do good
+
-
                    things for people. For
+
-
                    example; they can heal the wound or they can produce light. </p>
+
-
                <p align="justify">Then, we asked
+
-
                  what
+
-
                  their bacteria can do for them. We want them to show their ideas by painting. They are
+
-
                  only 6-age individuals but they have a lot of<br>
+
-
                  original idea that can be seen by looking their paintings.<br>
+
-
                  <br>
+
-
                  For instance;<br>
+
-
                  * Bacteria that extends the hair 8 cm in 3 minutes',<br>
+
-
                  * Bacteria massagers under the bed',<br>
+
-
                  * Singer bacteria etc.<br>
+
-
                  Consequently, we have told children that bacteria are not too harmful creatures<br>
+
-
                  In fact, sometimes, they would be very useful for people. This experience was a wonderful remembrance for us.<br>

HIGH SCHOOL DIVISION

High schools have started to join iGEM from this year. We think that this is really important and necessary. However, how much are the high schools in Turkey aware of iGEM and synthetic biology?
As Fatih_Turkey team, we went to some high schools of Ankara to inform high school students about that opportunity and also to help them to assemble their own teams. Firstly, we gave a presentation, told them the future of synthetic biology and its fields of use. Then, we introduced them with iGEM, told the rationale behind it, interesting projects from previous years, and our own project. Also, in order to teach iGEM and synthetic biology in an enjoyable way we played our game altogether. Students who played the game understood the iGEM and logic of biobrick more clearly. After the presentation and the game, we got very good reactions from students. They said that they would like to assemble a team and asked about the materials required for laboratory studies. We talked about the instruments and materials and also stated that we could help them whenever they needed.
As a result, we realized that high school students did not know much about synthetic biology and iGEM, which is quite natural. However, we believe that if we tell and encourage them, some students might choose to study in this field which may lead new useful projects. As Fatih Turkey team, we will support, encourage and help them as much as we can for next years’ competitions.

The high schools which we informed:
- Ahmet Ulusoy High School
- Private Samanyolu Serhat High School
- Nene Hatun High School
- Nevin Gökçek High School
- Öncü High School

In order to teach iGEM and synthetic biology in a funny way to people of all ages, we prepared a monopoly-like game. We played the game in our own university, and also in high schools where we went to introduce iGEM. We had a great time while playing the game with our friends and teenagers from the high schools. We also got really good reactions from the players, and one of the most interesting suggestions was that we had to sell this game.
Moreover, the players were given a survey prepared to measure the effect of the game. What is synthetic biology? What can be done by it? What is the logic behind the projects of iGEM? Those were the questions that they could find the answers in this game. The game not only gave them an idea about the iGEM or synthetic biology, but it also taught them the names of some mostly used antibiotics, principles of some experiments, and laboratory instruments, such as autoclave.
All the process is full of unforgettable moments, and they will remain in our memories for long and long years.
