Susan Singer, the Laurence McKinley Gould Professor of the Natural Sciences at Carleton College, has earned a Science prize for her Inquiry-Based Instruction (IBI) teaching tool for her genomics course called Genomics Explorers. Science's IBI Prize was developed to showcase outstanding materials, usable in a wide range of schools and settings, for teaching introductory science courses at the college level. The materials must be designed to encourage students' natural curiosity about how the world works, rather than to deliver facts and principles about what scientists have already discovered. Organized as one free-standing "module," the materials should offer real understanding of the nature of science, as well as providing an experience in generating and evaluating scientific evidence.
