Top Apps, Games, and Websites for Scientific Inquiry
Discovery driven by genuine curiosity is powerful. And when we can facilitate that for students in context as they make connections, it can lead to deep learning experiences. Scientific inquiry is just one example of this kind of learning, and it can be helpful to have resources that that help guide students through the process. These tools offer students the techniques to design their own "scientific method" through inquiry-based learning: asking questions, making observations, gathering data, uncovering answers, revising their thinking, and asking new questions. Use these tools to harness students' natural curiosity and inspire them to think critically and creatively as they make sense of the scientific phenomena around them.
