Web-based Inquiry Science Environment

Web-based Inquiry Science Environment

WISE is a simple yet powerful learning environment where students examine real-world evidence and analyze current scientific controversies. The curriculum projects are designed to meet standards and complement existing science curriculum, and grade 5-12 students will find the resources exciting and engaging. A web browser is all they need to take notes, discuss theories, and organize their arguments... they can even work from home! A Teacher Area lets you explore new projects and grade your students' work on the Web. Best of all, everything in WISE is completely free.
