- “The Science Inquiry & Discussion Contest” was held in 1993 as a part of “The 1st Students' Scientific Inquiry Olympic”. This contest was consisted of students’ cooperative inquiry and discussion in the form of ‘game’. The contest was successful and positively evaluated in science education, but it was originally designed for junior high school students. So we tried to apply the method of this event program(scientific discussion and cooperative inquiry) into curriculum of Physics Education Department in Seoul National University(SNU). “The Science Inquiry & Discussion Contest” was reorganized for undergraduate students and has been held since 1995 in Physics Education Department on SNU. All of undergraduate students and staffs in Physics Education Department participated in this program. In this report the results of “’96 the Science Inquiry & Discussion Contest” were introduced in detail with the evaluation and discussion. Through the application and evaluation of this program we came to get many positive implications. The first implication is that the cooperative inquiry with inter-grades students was possible. Second, the opportunity of long-term study was given to the students by this program. Third, Students could have chance to study in the different manner rather than those of classroom lecture style. And the last implication is that this program can be developed into a new style assessment of undergraduate physics education courses. In conclusion, the scientific discussion and cooperative inquiry method though “The Science Inquiry & Discussion Contest” had many positive results in undergraduate physics education curriculum, and such activities will be a kind of new style curriculum of undergraduate physics education courses.
