High School Students (Grades 9,10,11,12)


I would [like] students to continue to focus on developing research questions. They have a hard time doing this. I also want them to see how they can do science in the field and participate in fieldwork. I would like them to continue to focus on understanding the process of science and look at phenomena to generate questions, learn how to better analyze data and go back to their original question to modify and repeat. I also want them to work with actual scientists so they can see how they think about data and how they would use it. And in particular focus on the data analysis. My students are 11th and 12th graders
