A better way to teach science
In a typical school year, students are spending over 170 instructional days doing something hands-on. Labs and investigations related to problem-solving and phenomena, and woven tightly into the unit's overall issue, make up over two-thirds of the school year. Take a few minutes to watch an overview of one unit, Chemical Reactions, from Issues and Science, developed by SEPUP.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND TEACHER SUPPORTS
Professional development is a critical component of any new instructional material implementation, perhaps now more than ever. Lab-Aids works build internal leadership and long-term sustainability of the program. This professional development additionally supports a deepened understanding of the new standards and how they strive to serve all students.
Science educators have come to trust Lab-Aids as a valuable resource for engaging and worth-while professional development - whether it's an on-site implementation training, the Summer Academy to develop internal leadership, or a day focused on new standards or best-practice strategies.
