The question has been raised over and over: what is the best way to teach science? Everyone seems to have an opinion about how educators are doing it wrong, but — with information abundance and everything being searchable — how does one actually prepare students to be successful scientists in the 21st century? And what are the operationalized characteristics of a learning environment that fosters wonder and curiosity, alongside resilience and resourcefulness? In our chemistry and biology classes at Nueva, centering student questions and their ability to solve problems through inquiry-based learning has yielded great success, and I would love to share our work with you! Come to the session ready to learn about our best practices, get tools and materials you can adapt for your classroom, and bring your questions to the group for an interactive session about student-centered science education. I’ll bring my questions too!
