Inventing the Future [electronic resource]: K-16 Connection in Science

Trustees of Hampshire College
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In spite of a growing dependence on technology, studies show that as students move through grade levels they become progressively less interested in the sciences. This program illustrates how teachers can use inquiry-based learning, a powerful teaching method, to motivate students to deepen their understanding about the world around them. Students tackle problems and ask questions instead of simply memorizing concepts in the abstract. What makes this video unique is that it shows teachers using this approach in their classes across grade levels, from kindergarten to college.
