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. For this competition,
teachers have the opportunity to share an exemplary approach to teaching in a science
laboratory with minimal equipment. The winner receives a school science lab makeover
support package valued at $20,000!
