ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Invitations to Inquiry with FieldScope project uses FieldScope, a software platform for citizen science data collection and analysis, and short, focused classroom investigations using FieldScope data and tools, to support the implementation of inquiry-based environmental science learning in middle and high school classrooms. Our current work is focused on outreach efforts and providing teacher professional development opportunities.
