Scientific inquiry is all about "how much information (e.g., guiding question, procedure, and expected results) is provided to students and how much guidance you will provide as the teacher." [10] The purpose of inquiry-based learning is for students to construct meaning of what is being taught. It’s also an example of countries collaborating to prevent future sea disasters. They can learn how the station is assembled, take a spacewalk to bring station communications back online, or help tiny satellites on the station called Synchronized Position Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental Satellites (SPHERES) fly in formation so they can someday be used remotely to help astronauts handle tasks.
