Science Adventure Lab

Curriculum

The Science Adventure Lab might not be on the road right now, but we are offering modules virtually for students to continue their education. Each lesson is a 10-minute condensed version of what is taught on the mobile lab, supplemented with 10 minutes of live Q&A. In addition, you may read about activities (PDF) you can do from home!
