Transforming science education through research-driven innovation



Invitations to Inquiry with FieldScope: Free Professional Learning


BSCS Science Learning is offering free professional learning (PL) opportunities with our new Invitations to Inquiry with FieldScope lesson materials, which get students working with real-world data from citizen science projects using FieldScope .

Invitations to Inquiry with FieldScope are 2-4 class period environmental science instructional materials that provide educators and students an initial experience with asking and answering questions by analyzing environmental community and citizen science (CCS) data. They are also designed to support educators and students in sensemaking using scientific data, making progress toward the NGSS practices of analyzing and interpreting data and constructing explanations.

The PL is three hours total, across two live Zoom sessions that happen one week apart. Sign up by October 1, 2021, to ensure your spot.
