Inquiry-based learning has great educational potential. Students explore their world, learning the facts, concepts and skills of science as they proceed - they are motivated and empowered.
The STEM faculty is working with the OU’s Institute of Educational Technology (IET) on a number of science inquiry projects, most specifically through the Open Science Laboratory initiative led by the cross-faculty eSTEeM centre. This centre is based in the STEM faculty. We have long cooperated in developing citizen science projects, notably iSpot (see below). We intend to link citizen science and science inquiry in this research opportunity.
