Looking at the Environment is a one-year high school environmental science course that employs geographic visualization and data analysis tools in an inquiry-based approach to science education. Investigations in Environmental Science places students in the role of environmental scientists. It engages them in investigations of realistic environmental problems, in which they must make recommendations for sustainable uses of resources. In the course of these investigations, students employ a variety of scientific research techniques, including computer tools for the visualization and analysis of geographic data. These tools include WorldWatcher, a visualization and analysis tool for learners developed by the project members at Northwestern, and ArcView, the leading commercial geographic information system (GIS). Investigations in Environmental Science is being published in the Summer of 2005 and is now available for purchase in hardback on this site.
