Sustainable Inquiry Research and Education Network (SIREN) Wiki

The Sustainable Inquiry Research and Education Network (SIREN) program has integrated inquiry teaching strategies into sustainable agriculture projects designed by established producers and experienced scientists, building a research and education network of K-12 teachers, classrooms, schools, community education programs and university outreach and engagement activities in Minnesota.

The SIREN Project wiki page was set up for the teachers participating in the work of the project. The wiki archives all of the workshops the teachers attended including all of the materials handed out. It serves as a curriculum resource for teachers and research reports for producers and the community, expanding the audience for sustainable agriculture concepts. It also includes some of the videos explaining the protocol for conducting the classroom experiments.

SIREN is guided by an Advisory Council of conventional and organic farmers, researchers, and educators. Teacher workshops follow the well-tested Improving Teacher Quality model.
