ED53E:
Teaching the Scientific Method as an Integral Part of Earth and Physical Science Classes - Posters

Session Description:
Fundamental knowledge of the scientific method is integral to helping students understand scientific concepts and topics.  Often, however, this basic premise is not emphasized in Earth and physical science classes.  This session welcomes a broad range of presentations that discuss and highlight methods in which the scientific method is taught and included in both K-12 and university-level science classes.
