To teach is to make a life long commitment to learning--for our students and for ourselves. Teachers must work hard to stay abreast of new science content and pedagogy, which is why most states typically require ongoing professional development for re-certification every five years. LAB-AIDS® can help teachers acquire new content and skills, whether you are a veteran teacher, new to the profession, or somewhere in between.

The workshop/events calendar lists all LAB-AIDS field events for a year in advance. If there is a meeting or presentation of interest to you, contact information for the meeting, and for the LAB-AIDS representative attending the meeting, for your follow up.
Created by Achieve, the EQuIP Rubric (Evaluating the Quality of Instructional Products) is a tool for science educators to review science lessons and units for their degree of alignment to the Next Generation Science Standards. As a service to our customers, LAB-AIDS has created linked EQuIP documents for several of our current curriculum units. The embedded links in these documents take users to the student and teacher pages from our e-Books to cited pages in our EQuIP review.

Sample Student Notebooks
Below are digital copies of actual student notebooks from SEPUP curricula. These are intended to serve as annotated samples of student work for teacher planning and reflection.
