What is the Science Inquiry Institute?
This week-long professional development is a space for you to learn how you can bring more science inquiry to your school yard and classroom. Inquiry science education is a pedagogical method of using exploration, discovery and investigative questioning to teach science related content.

What will the week look like?

Each day we will focus on a BIG IDEA about inquiry science weaving in the content taught through the CORE Science Modules. We will also be taking field trips to other educational places.

 Monday – All about our Senses
 Tuesday – Be Curious!
 Wednesday – Investigate
 Thursday – Collect and Analyze Data
 Friday – Communicate the Findings
