The MdBioLab visits each school for up to 3 weeks.
The first week at a school MdBio
Mondays are reserved for setting up the trailer and meeting with classroom teachers. Classes with students are held Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and until 1 PM on Friday.
Class schedules should be developed by the school based on the minimum time required to complete each lab activity. If a class period is scheduled for a shorter period than the activity’s minimum class time requirement, another lab activity should be chosen. Schools may follow their bell schedule or create a unique schedule to be used for the week of the visit.
In order to serve the largest number of students possible, no more than two different activities be scheduled on the same day (but you may schedule any number of labs for the week). Schedules should be made based on the time a class is expected to be on the lab and when the class must leave the lab (accounting for travel time, etc.).
Schools are responsible for printing student handouts and ensuring that each student has a copy to bring to the exploration lab for their class. Pencils will be provided by the exploration lab.
During the first week of your visit, MdBioLab provides experienced science educators who lead students through inquiry-based activities. Learning Undefeated provides all necessary equipment, reagents, and supplies for the activity. Students and teachers only need to bring student handouts.
