The Innovative Technology in Science Inquiry Project

The Innovative Technology in Science Inquiry project (grades 3–12) presents STEM activities that use integrated technologies, such as modeling, computational thinking, and real-time data acquisition. Available for elementary, middle level, and high school levels, the activities combine hands-on inquiry with integrated, technology-based learning and address numerous topics in engineering, life science, physical science, Earth science, environmental science, biology, chemistry, and physics. For example, in Wind Generator (Elementary 3–4 Engineering), students design and build paper turbine blade models and use a voltage sensor to collect data about how much energy each design generates. In Reaction Time (Middle School Life Science), students use a computer interactive to record data on how quickly they move a finger in response to three different types of signals: sight, sound, and touch. Probability Clouds (High School Chemistry) explores the structure and properties of atoms through several model-building computer interactives.
