"Science teachers know that students are intrigued by emerging ('headline') science issues, and learn best by inquiry. But it's hard for science teachers to find deep resources for emerging science topics, and to find time to support open-ended inquiry-based science research in their classrooms.
"Base Camp Earth can help. Each expedition will acquaint your students with a contemporary science topic and inquiry-based learning. The expedition is conducted by fellow students, which makes it accessible, inviting and fun."
