Inspark is a global team of educators and experts creating and sharing next-generation courses to revolutionize science education by teaching the subject as an exploration of the unknown, not just a mastery of the known. Inspark’s smart courseware includes “BioBeyond”(introductory biology course), “Habworlds”(general education science course), and “Inhabiting Earth”(course teaching chemistry principles through the interplay of matter and energy). Inspark’s “Infiniscope” feature presents virtual field trips and exploratory activities. The Inspark network is led by a partnership between the Center for Education Through Exploration (ETX) at Arizona State University and adaptive-learning developer Smart Sparrow.
