This study’s results demonstrated that the students’ creativity increased after conducting the CPS model. Students gained the opportunity to think about the solutions in a creative manner while participating in the CPS class and they found the class interesting. Moreover, students’ level of understanding towards the environment issue increased, and they though that they participated in the class with greater interest compared to the existing lecture type of class.
