Welcome to the home page of the Science as Exploration Institute at Bryn Mawr College (directions) for the year 2001.

The Institute is designed to bring together college faculty and Philadelphia precollege teachers to develop inquiry based, hands on, classroom "modules", which allow students to develop scientific sophistication and understanding themselves, with teachers acting as guides and consultants rather than as instructors.

The Institute, which runs from 9 July through 20 July is supported by a grant to Bryn Mawr College from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
