About the Course
With a legume plant as the primary phenomenon, this semester-long, project-based learning course will engage students in authentic scientific research. Using inquiry-based methods, students will use their direct observations and background research to develop their hypotheses and carry out experimental research. Students will present their findings at the end of the semester through a virtual symposium.
Students may also have the opportunity to interact with guest experts in space exploration and astrobotany as schedules allow. While the main investigations will utilize the ExoLab research platform, students will engage in other hands-on activities that build their inquiry skills and deepen their conceptual understanding. Students will be enrolled in an online learning platform, the Magnitude.io Classroom, for lesson content, with live interactive sessions held via GoogleMeet.
