The 12-year compulsory education new curriculum will soon be realized. There is an innovative new course named ‘Natural Science Inquiry and Practice’. The new course reflects the worldwide trend of the urgent need of STEM education. It will help educate the capable and flexible workforce needed to compete in a global marketplace, and generate future scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians who will establish the new ideas, new products, and entirely new industries of the 21st century. In supporting the 12-year compulsory education, and solidifying the ability of our citizens to compete for high-quality jobs, we develop a set of visual and optical inquiry and practice module based on the open-source microprocessors. Quantitative sensing is the base of all the modern academic and industrial inquiries, and provides sensing abilities for the Internet of Things, Big data, and AI applications. The developed modules will not only serve as a study on the visual and optical phenomena but also can be used in the inquiry projects in various scientific and industrial fields. The practice of open source processor (Arduino) provides students a new dimension of inquiry and innovation. They can design and create their own modules for various inquiry needs. In the first year, the prototypes were designed and tested in the inquiry practice workshop for large class feasibility and reliability. In the second year, the prototypes were commercialized, and presented to the students, teachers and public. The extended applications have also been developed.
