AEMASE – Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE)

This short booklet provides a snapshot of concepts and international initiatives relating to Inquiry-based Science Education, a form of science education (SE) that – unlike the traditional model where the teacher provides facts and the students learn them – gives children the opportunity to explore “hands on”, to experiment, to ask questions and to develop responses based on reasoning. It is based on the proceedings of a 2014 conference involving experts and representatives from six continents, and it serves as a springboard for better understanding how Inquiry-Based Science Education can be supported in schools around the world.
