Physical Science Lab Kit
The MicroPhySci Kit 2nd Edition provides an academically challenging laboratory curriculum for students in grades 7-10. It is intended as the laboratory portion of a physical science course providing a full year of labs.
The MicroPhySci Kit 2nd Edition includes the 207 page MicroPhySci Kit Manual 2nd Edition with 36 lab experiments. As with all our kits, the included manual explains each experiment covering:
Goals – The goals section outlines the major learning areas of the experiment.
Background – The background would be equivalent to a short lecture on the theory of the experiment.
Materials and Equipment – Get the mentioned equipment out of the kit and you are ready to go. Any items not included in the kit like ice, sugar, hot water, etc. are mentioned in this area, as well as at the beginning of each experiment.
Procedure – Just follow the step by step procedure to do the experiment. Instructions are clearly explained making it easy for students, homeschool parents, and teachers/instructors.
Results – Students answer questions in the results area. This gives students a better understanding as well as a record of their completion.
We have designed the MicroPhySci Kit in order to make teaching and preparation very convenient for the instructor. It contains all materials necessary except for a few common household items. The kit contains sufficient materials to do every experiment five times.
