This course is intended primarily for students planning to become elementary school teachers or middle school science teachers. The course emphasizes the interdisciplinary application of fundamental scientific principles, practices, and ways of thinking to address questions relevant to everyday life. By exploring questions such as "How do we power our cars?" and "Why do we cook our food?", students will explore and apply foundational scientific concepts and processes by actively participating in scientific investigations and considering implications for curriculum design.
