In this hands-on workshop, participants will experience five guided inquiry activities related to ongoing research at Furman University that involves the development of ionomeric composites for nerve tissue engineering scaffolds. The activities include exploring alginate as a substitute for an extracellular matrix, producing a conductive polymer, measuring physical properties such as strength and viscoelasticity, and 3D printing. The discussion will include ways to foster a self-directed, research-oriented approach in students who lack experience with open inquiry. The activities incorporate the science practices from A Framework for K-12 Science Education.
