Abstract

This poster presents preliminary results from the second year of a three-year project designed to help elementary students learn about scientific inquiry and become active participants in their own science education. Florida State University has developed a set of technologies (an iPad application and website) integrated with a standards-based nature of science and scientific inquiry curriculum called Habitat Tracker. Preliminary analysis of the students' task engagement shows that this project has the potential to support student engagement during field trips to natural wildlife centers. Current results will inform future iterations of the project, and improve support for science teachers integrating museum field trips and classroom activities.
