The importance of developing the abilities to conduct and understand inquiry cannot be overstated. Acquisition of inquiry strategies will prepare students to encounter and solve problems and questions throughout their lives. By developing a more complete understanding of inquiry, it will be possible to infuse it throughout the curriculum and begin building a repertoire of strategies and content-based lessons. We hope the 2010–2011 volume of Science and Children will become a valuable resource. With this issue, we begin a Year of Inquiry.
