With the beginning of our Scientific Method Unit, we are learning about inquiry..what it means, how to apply it to the scientific method and how inquiry drives curiosity/creativity & vice versa. I was looking for a way to engage my students & get them thinking about inquiry in real world terms…outside of the lab setting, and then I saw this Google commercial about 10 minutes ago. I usually get a fuzzy, “wow” feeling from most of Google’s commercials, but this one was immediately a “light-bulb” moment!! Take a look at the commercial and see if it doesn’t drive you to go search something out…and using the internet to help you do so.
Kudos Google…you know how to say just the right thing and I’m hoping my students can get fired up about inquiry because of it
