“I like the lab because it makes me feel like a real scientist.”
Sam, Grade 2
No matter what program you choose, we understand that if teachers aren’t comfortable applying it, chances are the program won’t flourish. That’s why on-site comprehensive professional development is standard with each LabLearner program.
LabLearner’s Professional Development for teachers includes the same hands-on, interactive and engaging training techniques that have become so revolutionary in the classroom with students. While working with practicing scientists, using the very same equipment, materials and curriculum that will later be applied with their students, teachers can actually live out the old adage: practice makes perfect!
LabLearner teachers are a diverse group. Some have a limited scientific background while others have studied science with more depth. LabLearner Teacher Professional Development is designed to work with teachers of all scientific backgrounds to maximize their success in teaching the LabLearner program, understanding important science concepts and gaining a familiarity with scientific equipment.
