How does EI work?
EI includes two levels of inquiry, modeled after professional scientific research.
First, students learn specific research protocols.
Using these protocols, they conduct interactive
research projects. Downloadable
forms help students design feasible experiments and then analyze, interpret,
and present the results.
Who can participate?
This EI website is designed for use by any interested high school students and
teachers. Our college-level
