HMOF created a partnership with Turkey’s Bilim Kahramanları Derneği (BKD/Science Heroes Association) for Science Heroes Projects and has supported the participation of the teams from girls’ dormitories for FLL Tournaments.
The program has been implemented in Turkey since 2004 under the name of Bilim Kahramanları Buluşuyor (Science Heroes Meet). This tournament is for children and young adults aged between 9 – 16 from 110 countries. Participation allows the participants to feel like they are real life scientists and engineers.
128 girls from 12 dormitories in 6 years have participated the tournaments with the support of the Foundation.
