What captures the interest of students? FOOD! Yes, food can be used to engage students in inquiry-based science — really! The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in collaboration with the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) have created Science and Our Food Supply, an innovative, interactive supplementary curriculum for use in middle level and high school science classes.

  • Master teachers spend more time unpacking standards and objectives than they do planning learning activities because they understand that clear learning goals will drive everything else they do.

Several of the ENSI lessons contain elements appropriate for STEM teaching (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), as well as NGSS and CCS (Common Core Standards). They deal with scientific argumentation, scientific creativity, functional design, applications of math, and some with the potential for reverse engineering and competitive engineering. Others use molecular data obtained from online data banks; one of these is actually a tutorial so students can find and download desired online data, and use online tools for processing data.
