BSCS Science Learning has launched Invitations to Inquiry to help middle and high school students work with community and citizen science data from projects hosted on FieldScope. Teachers and students use FieldScope to collect, visualize, and analyze data. Using these new inquiries, students can explore FieldScope’s advanced mapping and graphing tools to dig deeper into data in the context of meaningful science classroom lessons. Students will analyze data to answer questions like:
What is the best time to host a lilac blossom festival?
Does a plastic bag tax work to reduce litter in the environment?
The inquiries are designed for 2-4 days of classroom learning and also present opportunities to get outside to collect data for local and global community and citizen science projects. Find the lessons on the BSCS Educator Resources Center
