About the event
Inquiry-based education is meant to engage student’s curiosity and interest, so that students become self-motivated to learn. Learning science becomes an exploration to find answers to the student’s own questions. I am offering science teachers a short workshop to demonstrate Inquiry-based leaning. We will explore the phenomenon of our vision. Our eye is constructed like a camera with a lens that focuses an image on a surface (the retina) just like a camera lens focuses the image on the film. Does our eye work like a camera? We will do three short experiments on-line to explore this question and meet after each experiment to discuss our results. Then we will discuss what additional professional development teachers need to implement curricula like Open-Sci Ed into their classrooms.
Participants in this workshop will earn up to five hours professional development.
