Natural Approach to Chemistry

A Natural Approach to Chemistry was developed by a team of innovators, professors and teachers who felt chemistry instruction needed examples in order to make connections with students, it must be experienced at an appropriate level, and it must be personally relevant. 

Students need the opportunity to do chemistry and to develop an experimentally-validated understanding of each key concept.

National Agriscience Teacher Ambassador Academy

We are proud of our 13 year partnership with DuPont, the National Association of Agricultural Educators and the National FFA Foundation that supports it. Lab-Aids was the 2010 DuPont Education Partner of the Year - primarily for our long-standing role as a curriculum partner and our initial role in program and workshop design.

What's the big Deal?

Are research-based programs really that different from others?
Absolutely
I'm not convinced
Yes!

Research-based curricula is built on rigorous research in content, cognitive development, and educational best-practice. These programs require ongoing evaluation for efficacy in student understanding and, in our case, are linked to highly regarded institutions that also have a stake in maintaining their reputation of excellence. 

Yes - there's really no comparison.
