Science teachers from the ESU 10 district came together on November 9, 2010 to collaborate and learn from one another. The theme for the day was Raising Questions and included a visit with ESU 4 science teachers and Jim Woodland from Nebraska Department of Education via distance learning. We also took a look at the recently released NeSA-S Table of Specifications. The highlight of the day was completing an inquiry-based experiment with ice balloons. Through this experiment, teachers were able to explore how to scaffold student questions and guide them to design their own investigations to find out more about the questions they ask. The Science Teachers Network will meet again on January 18, 2012; registration is currently open on ODIE.
