iWonder is a student-led platform that allows classrooms to develop their own research programs, called investigations, to help them solve a local problem that may be related to environmental challenges.

Are you ready to revolutionize your students’ learning experience?

Come join the iWonder Student-Led Community Science program!



About Us

The iWonder project brings together students, educators, scientists, and community members across varying communities and educational settings. These community stakeholders work toward a common goal to help their communities thrive and enable deep, authentic community learning within co-created community science projects.

Beyond the Curriculum

Our program doesn’t stop at textbooks and classrooms. It takes learning to a whole new level by engaging students in captivating discoveries that extend far beyond the limits of the classroom.

Deepened Learning

We empower students to be the drivers of their own learning journey. With hands-on exploration and problem-solving, they’re not just absorbing knowledge—they’re actively seeking answers to the real scientific challenges their communities face.

Inspiring Purpose

By placing learning directly in the hands of students, we ignite their passion for making a difference. Our program encourages them to find purpose in the solutions they create for their local scientific community challenges.

Research-Backed Excellence

iWonder is built on a solid foundation of over 12 years of research. It seamlessly weaves together hands-on learning with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to equip your students with the skills and knowledge they need to become the scientists and leaders of tomorrow.



Flexible pricing packages allow us to meet teacher and student needs in one classroom, for a school, or across a whole district. Each plan includes teacher support, iWonder staff time, tools and resources, connections to scientists, and access to our online community platform.

“iWonder has been an impactful resource for both me and my students as I integrate it into our math and science curriculum. Because of the student-driven inquiry, my students are engaged and excited to pursue their own wonderings about the world.”
