Abstract

Students face several challenges when trying to make sense of data from sensor networks. The Sensing the Environment Inquiry Module was developed to help students learn about adaptation by investigating ecological data from a local sensor network. Sixty-one students from three Los Angeles-area schools piloted the inquiry unit in Spring 2004. Students at all three schools made significant learning gains.
