Developing a Competitive Application for the Shell Science Lab Challenge

This web seminar took place on October 3, 2013 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. eastern daylight time. The presenters were Eric Crossley, Director of Science Education Competitions at NSTA, and Ruth Ruud, judging chair for the Shell Science Lab Challenge. In this program, Mr. Crossley and Ms. Ruud provided strategies and advice for applying for the Shell Science Lab Challenge, an award that recognizes middle and high school science teachers who illustrate replicable approaches to science lab instruction while using limited school and laboratory resources.

During the presentation, Mr. Crossley introduced participants to the award and shared information about the categories of winners and prizes. Ms. Ruud gave details about the application process and judging criteria. Participants had the opportunity to ask questions about the award, and then they watched a video featuring past winning teachers.
