Welcome to TEEMSS2

What is sound? How does a light bulb work? Why do seasons change? How can you design a playground for an egg?

These are some of the questions students in grades 3-8 answer using sensors and models. The TEEMSS project engages students in inquiry-based activities in their science classrooms—and in the fields and parking lots around their schools, too.

Students use the power of technology to ask questions, investigate, measure, analyze, think, and communicate. In other words, they do real science!
