What does DNA have to do with the taste of broccoli? How do roller coasters make our stomachs drop? Can you find a solution to water pollution? Students can explore these and other questions as they roll up their sleeves in The Tech Interactive's hands-on Science Labs.
These interactive, facilitated sessions offer deeper learning experiences that reinforce scientific concepts and help students develop 21st-century skills. Participants will use the design process to brainstorm, design, build, test and redesign their way to creative solutions to real-world science and engineering challenges.
Each of our labs supports Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards and California Science Content Standards. They are complemented by related gallery exhibits and pre- and post-lab activities.
Information on each of our eight labs -- including lesson plans and educator guides -- is provided below.
