Explore how to use these investigations with your students both in the classroom and remotely. Earn PDPs and optional graduate credits. Receive a toolkit containing materials to enable you to complete the inquiry-based, minds-on, hands-on investigations introduced during the course. As an added bonus, you will be invited to participate in optional field sessions with our partners during the 2021-2022 school year.
