Students learn a little about each of the planets before they land on planet Mars. Along they also learn to solve problems that astronauts could face on a journey into space. “It was more really about problem solving and using the strategies in the tech and science design process,” teacher Katheryn Spivey, the school's science and technology content specialist, said. “They’re learning, reminding themselves of the science concepts like what do you need to survive ,like oxygen and water, and they talked about chemistry so it actually ties into all of the middle school science program.”
Through innovative and experiential education programs for grades K-12, we are sparking interest in STEM careers, building the workforce that will drive the innovation economy, and bridging school, community, health and business.
Our Programs in Action
A Life Changing Experience
The mobile science lab was a life changing experience for our children this summer! Josiah failed science in school last year and the science part of the STAR test as well. He was frustrated and hated science for this reason. Josiah is a very intelligent child but for some reason science was a struggle for him. The science lab changed his mind on the way he felt about science. Josiah stated “ science in school was boring but I love the experiments Ms. Desurae had us doing because she makes them a lot of fun”. So far this year his science grades are great! Thank you MDBio for changing the lives of our children and giving them an unforgettable summer. — Charlotte Dorsey, Executive Director
A great week with the Bio Lab
I wanted to thank you and your crew for the great week we had with the Bio Lab. It could not have gone any better – from the site prep and the drop off, to the experience provided for our students. We wanted access for all students, and we received more than we could hope for! Our ESOL students who are new to English and the language of science are still talking about the experience! Our upper level IB and AP kids were thrilled to have an opportunity to work in such a professional setting. – Beth Foster, Science Academic Chair. Annapolis High School
In the Media
"This Texas mobile STEM lab is the perfect opportunity for kids to come in, use the engineering design process and to solve real-world problems for the future,” said science teacher Leslie Hess. The future engineers are already on the right track thanks to organizations like Learning Undefeated who are making sure opportunities are available to as many Texas kids as possible.
