abstract
Inquiry-based teaching is central to the National Science Education Standards as well as the Wyoming State Education Standards. However, many teachers hesitate to teach science through inquiry because they did not learn this way themselves. Teaching and learning through inquiry promotes deep understanding of science concepts, active communication and high engagement in learning science. Students working in an inquiry setting are practicing science as ‘true scientists’. Through my WySTEP fellowship I was able to gain a greater appreciation for the scientific process and in doing so strengthening my skills as an inquiry based educator. My presentation is going to look into the benefits of inquiry-based science education as well as the ways that I have tried to incorporate scientific inquiry into my curriculum.
