Join us at the NSTA Engage Fall Virtual Conference. 

Lab-Aids will be hosting a virtual booth with live representatives ready to chat with you. Our booth will have informative videos and documents for your review. 

Lab-Aids will host three live workshops and make sure to schedule SEPUP's Session also.

MODELING THE INTRODUCTION OF A NEW SPECIES
Friday, November 13, 2020
Time: 4:50p - 5:35p EST |  ☼ Live Workshop

From the Middle School Issues and Science Ecology Unit
Presented by Cindy Lilly | Science Teacher - Ocean Bay Middle School, SC

Through an online simulation, students will develop a model for an ecosystem and then introduce a new species to explain how this new component in the system affects the flow of energy and cycling of matter throughout the ecosystem. Learn about Lab-Aids’ new Remote Learning Activities and discover ideas for implementing hands-on curricula into an online platform. The activity provides an opportunity to assess student work related to MS-LS2-3.

 

NGSS-FOCUSED SUMMATIVE CLASSROOM ASSESSMENTS OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL LEARNING
Friday, November 13, 2020
Time: 4:05p - 4:55p EST | ☼ Live Workshop

From SEPUP/Lawrence Hall of Science
Presented by Maia K. Binding | Curriculum Developer at SEPUP

Explore classroom-tested benchmark assessments and scoring guides designed to assess students' three-dimensional learning related to middle school performance expectations for life, physical, and Earth science. 

 

INVESTIGATING EMBRYOLOGY
Saturday, November 14, 2020
Time: 1:00p - 1:45p EST | ☼ Live Workshop

From the Middle School Issues and Science Evolution Unit
Presented by Cindy Lilly | Science Teacher - Ocean Bay Middle School, SC

Through an online simulation, students analyze and interpret skeletal and embryological images to identify patterns of similarities and differences across species that look very different as mature animals. Students identify patterns of similarities throughout developmental time to infer evolutionary relationships not obvious in the mature animals. Learn about Lab-Aids’ new Remote Learning Activities and discover ideas for implementing hands-on curricula into an online platform. This activity provides an opportunity to assess student work related to MS-LS4-3.

 

CELL DIFFERENTIATION AND GENE EXPRESSION
Sunday, November 15, 2020
Time: 11:30a - 12:15p EST | ☼ Live Workshop

From the High School Science and Global Issues: Biology Genetics Unit
Presented by Donna Parker | Science Teacher - Dublin Coffman High School, OH

Students often have trouble conceptualizing how selective gene expression works. In this workshop, participants will use digital manipulatives to see how to teach this concept and explain how it is connected to genetic engineering, using concrete modeling. A follow up reading shows how this technology is used in food production, making selective gene expression a relevant and engaging sustainability issue. Discover ideas from Lab-Aids for implementing hands-on curricula into an online platform. From the Science and Global Issues: Biology program from SEPUP and Lab-Aids.
