LAB ACTIVITIES

Below are copies of labs I designed as a "Scientist in the Classroom" through Vanderbilt's Center for Science Outreach. I co-taught 4 8th grade science classes once per week with the primary instructor with Metro Nashville Public Schools. We tried to design and implement problem-based and phenomenon-based learning experiences and labs to improve engagement, interest, and overall understanding of the state science standards.
