The Private Eye - looking closely and thinking by analogy with jeweler's loupes and inquiry method for hands-on interdisciplinary science, art, writing, math, and more

The Private Eye working with
Oregon STEM Hubs

“The Private Eye Program stresses interdisciplinary and connected thinking. The three-dimensional instruction and learning called for in the Next Generation Science Standards is the premise of The Private Eye. Focused, coherent, and engaging instruction allows for problem solving, decision making, explaining real world phenomena and integrating new ideas.”
—Carol Biskupic Knight, Director,
Teachers Academy for The Portland Metro STEM Partnership

“The Private Eye has developed engaging methods to guide students to become first-rate observers AND to communicate their observations.  The program is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards and integrates these essential skills into stimulating hands-on lessons that connect students to the world around them.  Teachers leave this workshop with a clear understanding of the methods which can be easily incorporated into their classrooms.”
— Julie Keniry, Grant Facilitator,
    GO-STEM Collaborative


“The Private Eye is a powerful process for enriching STEM education. It raises student (and teacher) curiosity and creativity, emphasizing the interconnectedness of subject areas. It’s well aligned to the NGSS and the Common Core, and we love how it accelerates critical thinking and writing across the curriculum. Best of all it can be used inside and outside the classroom and gets kids to look closely at and appreciate their environment.”
—Ruth MacDonald, Director,
   Oregon Coast STEM Hub
