Icon Explain - You think you know the solution then explain it
Icon Extend - If I now understand this mystery and its science, what else can it help me understand?

This App was developed and tested under project TEMI (Teaching Enquiry with Mysteries Incorporated).
TEMI (2013-2016) is a Europe wide training project giving teachers new classroom skills and resources to deliver effective enquiry based learning. TEMI draws on scientific mysteries to invite students learning, putting them in the position of scientific detectives searching for the solutions. The TEMI teaching philosophy, training and resources combine engaging presentations with specified learning stages, allowing the student growing freedom to experiment, just like a real scientist. Details and full multi language resources available to download on www.teachingmysteries.eu.
The TEMI project has been funded under the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement No 321403.
