2010 NDYS WILL BE HELD IN THE CITY CALLED BURSA

Bursa is a city in northwestern TURKIYE and the seat of Bursa Province. With a population of 2,562,828 in 2007, it is TURKIYE's fourth largest city, as well as one of the most industrialized and culturally charged metropolitan centers in the country.

The city of Bursa, southeast of the Sea of Marmara, lies on the lower slopes of Uludag (Mt. Olympos of Mysia, 2543 meters).

It was the first capital of the Ottoman Empire. Many important Ottoman buildings remain. So there are many historical places to visit in the city.

It is known as "Green Bursa", the city is filled with gardens and parks and overlooks a verdant plain. It is at the center of an important fruit growing region. Bursa was, and is still, famous for its peaches, silk trade, towel manufacture and thermal springs. Make a point to try the locally-created iskender Kebab, a dish of bread, tomato sauce, strips of grilled meat, melted butter and yogurt. Candied chestnuts are another regional specialty.

Thirty-six kilometers from Bursa is Uludag, the largest center for winter sports in Turkey and offers a variety of activities, accommodation and entertainment. The slopes are easily reached by car or cable car (teleferik). December to May is the best time for skiing, although the area, Uludag National Park, is well worth a visit at any time of the year for the lovely views and wonderful fresh air.

A seaside resort town 25 km from Bursa, Mudanya's fine fish restaurants and nightclubs are popular with the residents of Bursa. Just 12 km from Mudanya, Zeytinbagi (Tirilye) exemplifies the architecture and layout of a typical Turkish town.

The Gulf of Gemlik 29 km from Bursa has wide sandy beaches, of which Kumla is the favorite.

School is located on a closed area of 15.000 m2 surrounded with pine forest at Nilüfer Gümüştepe part of Bursa, which is away from the crowd and traffic stress of the city center. With the special architecture of the school campus, it is easy to feel the value given to our students.  Tunçsiper School presents the excellent quality of education thanks to the modern classes, labs, closed & open sport facilities, conference lounge, a very hygienic refectory and a specially decorated canteen. All classes are equipped with technology-supported devices used for interactive education.      
School is everything… Educational Institutes always need to update both their facilities and their teaching models. In 2007, we have started to apply a new method that will determine what kind of educational model should be followed to let our students reach their career objectives as well as plan their in & out of school activities. Leaded by innovative teachers, Tunçsiper Schools provides opportunities for students to engage in developing their IT skills.
Traditional Values & Valuable Diploma The school concept perceived by Tunçsiper Schools is that “school isn’t only a foundation of teaching and learning but also it offers a global perspective to students in order to help them shape their view of life”. This is applicable only when the school manages to convert certain values like amity, respect, responsibility etc. into behavior. Peace is the key for happiness and success and you feel the real peace at Schools at once your first step into our facilities. So, Tunçsiper Schools believe that diploma doesn’t certificate only the academic success but also the social achievements of our students!

Share The Process of NDYS 2009
In our team, we are composed of nine, ten and eleven grades students.

  1. Considered the harmful environmental effects of natural gas and coal in generating energy on global warming.
  2. We firstly completed technical drawings of our project, which aims the use of freely flowing water for electricity generation.
  3. Then, we visited Misi village, the pilot area, to find a good place for installation of our system and a tea garden near the river in Misi village was chosen as a target point.
  4. Items of the systems were carefully designed in cooperation with the municipality.
  5. We cleaned the water flowing channel and poured concrete on the area to have smoothness for the installation of the wheel.
  6. We worked with a small atelier for the construction of wheel (3m diameter) and financed this stage by organizing five bake sales in our Schools.
  7. We agreed with Gumustepe Primary Schools and Local Agenda 21 on maintenance and protection of the system.
  8. All members of our club worked actively both in pouring concrete and constructing the wheel. In cooperation with the municipality, NGO’s, institutions, village people and our twin Schools.
  9. We managed to generate 1.6 kilowatt/hr energy with zero environmental harm and low investment cost. The tea garden was lightened by this system. The best acquisition for us is that our students have become more sensible for environmental problems and more eager to take active role for solutions.

    Our project was broadcasted on the local TV channels called As TV and Olay TV, which was a big step to raise public awareness on generating electricity via freely flowing waters, which is our basic project objective. Please, click on the link for more information:  http://www.tuncsiper.com/volvo/default.html

Present Topic Outline
Aims of the project in the short run:  To generate electricity enough to power at least 70 units of electricity bulbs for lightening a tea garden in Misi village, the pilot area of the project.
Aims of the project in the long run: To provide the use of environment-friendly alternative electricity generation sources by the owners of small facilities. By designing our project with lighter and thinner materials to decrease the cost and make the system look smarter we can manage to make the design accepted as a “City Accessory” or “ City Furniture” This design can be used worldwide soon.  
Social aim of the project: To increase the awareness of youths on environmental problems so that finding effective solutions against these problems can easily become their philosophy of life.
