Curricular Resources

ARISE teachers and Brown University scientists have worked collaboratively to develop inquiry-based curriculum for life science classrooms. Curriculum and resources on inquiry-based teaching are available to all teachers.

Nature of Discovery Symposium

Each spring, Project ARISE teachers and their students will be invited to Brown University for the Nature of Discovery Symposium. Students will be given the opportunity to present results from both classroom laboratory exercises and independent research performed using mobile lab equipment. The symposium will also include seminars from Brown faculty and postdoctoral fellows.
