    Using an inquiry-based activity in the classroom can significantly enhance students’ engagement and understanding of scientific concepts. Here’s how I might implement it:

    I would begin by introducing a real-world problem or question related to space exploration, such as “How can we design a sustainable habitat for astronauts on Mars?” Provide students with background information and relevant resources. Organize students into small groups and guide them to brainstorm potential solutions, encouraging them to ask questions and conduct research.

    Facilitate hands-on experiments and simulations using resources, such as building models or conducting simulations of Martian environments. As students work through their inquiries, I would prompt them to make observations, collect data, and analyze their findings.

    Throughout the process, I would encourage critical thinking and problem-solving. Concluding with a class discussion where groups present their solutions and reflect on their learning. This approach fosters collaboration, creativity, and a deeper understanding of scientific principles.
