EQuiP Rubrics

Classroom resources that are fully aligned to the NGSS should meet the rigorous criteria of the EQuIP rubric developed by Achieve and NSTA. 

In 2014 Lab-Aids used the EQuiP rubrics to evaluate our own programs to see where we were already meeting and where we needed to improve. Turns out good science is good science and we already had a pretty solid foundation to work from. 

Notebook Tutorial Video

Whether you're new to notebooking or you want to dig deeper this helpful video walks through the aspects of keeping a science notebook. 

Sample Science Notebook

A science notebook not only models the way scientists work, but it helps to develop and reinforce students’ science learning and literacy skills. 

Up your game

Sometimes you need a little reminder or a new idea to implement a new strategy to your teaching. These resources can add depth to your approach, help expand your teaching skillset and are a nice supplement to our implementation PDs.

Atmosphere and Climate

This course was developed for alignment with the Framework for K–12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas (National Research Council, 2012)

Lab-Master Tutorial Video

The Lab-Master® is an innovative, easy-to-use, probeware system consisting of an integrated RGB spectrophotometer, temperature probe, and voltage probe. Instead of an open flame the Lab-Master system uses a safe, electric control-point heater to heat test tubes.  

Lab Preparation Videos

Produced by the authors to provide background and logistical information to help prepare you for conducting the lab investigations. Timely tips are provided for pedagogy, equipment setup, discussion points, and sample responses.

Podcasts

This is a series of virtual lectures, complete with a slide presentation, for each chapter. A useful tool for a flipped classroom or just to help you prepare for presenting information to your students. Students can also use them to catch up on what was missed during an absence or as a chapter review.
