Science Pipes: A World of Data at Your Fingertips

by: Courtney R. Wilson, Nancy M. Trautmann, James G. MaKinster, and Barbara J. Barker

A new online tool called Science Pipes allows students to conduct biodiversity investigations. With this free tool, students create and run analyses that would otherwise require access to unwieldy data sets and the ability to write computer code. Using these data, students can conduct guided inquiries or hypothesis-driven research to investigate patterns and trends—such as the distribution of plant and animal species across biomes or the migration routes of various bird species.
