Field Trips and Experiential Learning

At MEF IS learning Extends beyond the walls of the classroom. Field Trips and Excursions are part of the learning process PreK-Grade 12 as we believe hands-on experiences deepen student’s understanding of concepts and allow students to make meaning of content. It is common for our primary students to take excursions related to the unit of inquiry or concepts taught in classrooms. This may include visiting museums, understanding the importance of waste management by touring the landfill or composting facilities, learning more about the history and Turkish culture by visiting historical monuments, or venturing to the local dog shelter to inspire new ways to "take action", a vital underpinning of the IB curriculum.

Here are a few images of our Primary students applying what they learned on various field trips including the grade 4 annual field trip to Izmir for the much anticipated Space Camp, where students explore the mysteries of space and learn from trained Aerospace Engineers.
