The Leader in Investigation-Centered STEM

Engaged Students

With our programs, student engagement comes from actively doing and making sense of science and mathematics. Students investigate and explain phenomena, gather and analyze data, develop and use visual models, and solve multi-step problems. They develop important life skills as they work collaboratively in groups and explore individually with technology supports. Our programs help students to articulate their thinking, critique the reasoning of others, and persevere in completing rich tasks and tackling complex problems.

Passionate Teachers

Our programs fuel the passion of our teachers. Educators delight in actively guiding students through rigorous science and mathematics investigations. Our comprehensive teacher resources provide the necessary content, structure, and supports. We provide videos for lesson preparation, just-in-time access to instructional materials, embedded guides to orchestrate each investigation, and technology supports to efficiently evaluate student work and provide personalized feedback.

Louisiana Institute Series

We are offering a series of two day institutes that will introduce the materials of IQWST to teachers, Science Coaches and administrators. After an introduction that places IQWST in the context of Louisiana Student Standards for Science and 3-D learning, educators will experience IQWST through the lens of student thinking by engaging in activities and readings from a module. They will learn the facets of IQWST that are shared across all modules and the instructional strategies needed to engage with them. Time will be spent experiencing modeling, articulating scientific principles, and writing scientific explanations, also known as CERs (Claims, Evidence, Reasoning).
