Abstract: Math, science and technology (MST) education in Europe is significantly based on experiments and problem solving. The innovative project weSPOT aims introducing of such education with a strong emphasis on scientific inquiry, individualization of learning and enhancing the role of social interaction. To achieve this goal, each student is supported by a set of software tools, helping him to plan, implement, comment and document his personal scientific experiment. The students are encouraged to share and discuss their experience and to learn how to conduct a scientific research. They share their achievements in class as well as in their own social community (friends, family, scientists, etc.). This paper describes in details the scientific approach which is the base for the pilot experiments of the weSPOT-methodology. It presents the first pilots of inquiry based science education in secondary school and analyses the applicability of the used software products.
