WHAT IS INQUIRY BASED SCIENCE TEACHING?

school science experiments
A project involving countries from all over Europe faces the challenge of developing a common terminology and a common understanding of its basic ideas. Although the roots of IBST (inquiry-based science teaching) as the main approach to improving science teaching and learning in S-TEAM lead back to the early 20th century (Minner. Levy & Century, 2009), the seminars showed that no common definition currently exists at a European level. In many of the participating countries appropriate translations of the term in the national language were not found.

CHANGING THE WAY SCIENCE IS TAUGHT

s-team experiments
S-TEAM has been created to change the way science is taught in schools across Europe and beyond. Its task is to make it easier for teachers to use inquiry-based or 'investigative' methods when teaching science. These methods should increase student motivation and engagement with science. In turn, this means more scientifically-literate citizens, and more students taking up careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.S-TEAM does not claim to offer an instant cure for the problems of student engagement with science.
