About the Course

With a legume plant as the primary phenomenon, this semester-long project-based learning course will enable students to conduct authentic independent research under the guidance of a science educator. Using inquiry-based methods, students will conduct literature reviews, formulate a research proposal, conduct an investigation, and present results. View the syllabus

Guest speakers may be arranged based on particular topics and student interest, and these scheduled sessions may occur on different weeks depending on availability. While the main investigations will use the ExoLab, students may engage in other weekly hands-on activities that build understanding and deepen their inquiry skills. Students would be enrolled on the Magnitude.io platform for lesson content and enrichment. Live class sessions would be held through Google Meet.
