Inquiry in Rain Forests is an in-service program, and incredible field course, for teachers that aims to improve K-12 science teaching by helping teachers DO science – by conducting open-ended, inquiry-based research in Costa Rica.
Inquiry in Rain Forests harnesses the excitement and novelty of tropical ecosystems and organisms to inspire participants to develop their own field-problem-based activities. During these two weeks, participants become more confident in, and skilled at, true process-oriented, NGSS-style teaching, and in the development of teaching and assessment plans for use in classrooms. Teachers also receive training in filming and producing videos for use in teaching.
