TED 1100 INQUIRY-BASED THINKING IN STEM (3 credits)
This course provides students with hands-on science content experiences that model the inquiry-based thinking used in science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers. Students will undertake interdisciplinary science modules to understand prairie ecosystems and to study how living things (such as animals, plants, and microbes) interact with non-living things (such as water, soil, and energy) within a dynamic system. Students will study the prairie at UNO's Glacier Creek Preserve facility from an interdisciplinary perspective, investigating the geology, biology and chemistry of the prairie environment, while using information science to analyze data and model prairie systems.
Prerequisite(s)/Corequisite(s): Not open to non-degree graduate students.
Distribution: Natural/Physical Science General Education course
