Inq-ITS is an AI-based assessment system designed to support real-time science instruction. Come try your hand at a virtual science lab and see how AI measures you. Perfect for middle or high schoolers who want to try a science lab, or for teachers and arents who are interested in seeing how this technology can benefit learning. Not to worry if science isn’t your thing! Rex, the AI tutor can jump in to help a student while they work.


Try out the latest version of EpicWin, a gamified to do list, on iPads available at our booth and talk about how to make it better!

Thinking and Knowing in Science

GSE students and faculty will present activities and challenges that they have co-developed and used in their educational research to promote better thinking about real-world issues. Visitors can also engage with science simulations that we have developed to support thinking in science.
