Event-Based Science meets National Science Education Standards!

Scenario-Based Investigations

From time to time, our site will post real-world scenario-based science investigations for your use. They follow a structure we call the Total Engagement Learning System (TELS). Please let us know what you think of them.

Independant Investigations - Activities created by the EBS Institute for the use of teachers.

Saving the Inlet- A real-world investigation of beach erosion and prevention .

Remote Sensing - Ten scenario-based investigations that support specific Event-Based Science modules but are also available free to everyone.

Remote Sensing - NASA funded activities.

Collaborative Investigations - Activities created in cooperation with other educational institutions, foundations, and government agencies.

Managing a Pest - A real-world Integrated Pest Management activity created in collaboration with Penn State University.

Cover Your Bases - Fifteen math and science activities  that use baseball as their real-world context. These activities were created in collaboration with the Cal Ripken, Jr. Foundation.

Finding a Match - A simulated blood typing activity in the context of organ donation is part of a program called Decision: Donation—A School Program that Gives the Gift of Life Kit.  This educational program was created in collaboration with the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the McKenzie Group. Although it is no longer available from HHS, a pdf of the activity is available here. To obtain a Teachers Guide for the activity click here.

Investigations designed to be used with on-line interactive tutors created by Quantum Simulations™.They will also work as the stand-alone activities that appear here.

Combustion - A real-world Equation Balancing activity

Metric Units - A real-world Metric System activity

Death on the Road - A real-world Percentage activity

Cosmic Distances - A real-world Scientific Notation activity.

Russell Wright (principal author of the Event-Based Science series) has also developed 65 Scenario-Based Investigations that accompany a new middle-school science program published by Pearson.

Between 1995 and 2017 the Event-Based Science website was available free to all users. We want to continue making the site available free, but to do that we need your help. We're hoping that small contributions will provide the support we need to continue publishing.

No contribution is too small!
