Students are motivated to learn in the context of highly engaging and authentic “real-world” projects that guide instruction, serve to organize meaningful learning, and promote the excitement and joy of learning.
Students actively engage in science and engineering practices and mathematical reasoning to deepen their understanding of core ideas. Students work together to define problems, conduct investigations, make models, use computational thinking, write explanations, and discuss and present findings.
Our 21st century technology is designed to support a seamless implementation of our curricula. It includes all hands-on equipment needed for the classroom and top-of-the-line electronic books, probes, and mobile devices.
We are committed to providing comprehensive support services for districts implementing our programs. From face-to-face workshops to our ever-expanding Cyber professional-development resources, we can tailor-fit a complete solution to your needs.
Investigations in Environmental Science, a case-based approach to the study of environmental systems, is a three-unit, high-school environmental science course that employs geographic visualization and data analysis tools. The units cover land use, energy, and water.
Investigations in Environmental Science uses a case-based and inquiry-based approach.
Students learn as environmental scientists, investigating realistic environmental problems.
Investigations in Environmental Science students use evidence-based, decision-making processes.
Students make informed and explicit decisions about their impact on the environment.
Investigations in Environmental Science uses technology to support inquiry and learning.
Students use software, WorldWatcher, and GIS to conduct investigations with scientific data.
