Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
21st Century Texas students will need a science curriculum that engages them through a problem-based, issues oriented approach and therefore LAB-AIDS is proud to announce that it has submitted its intent to bid for adoption in response to the Texas Education Agency’s (TEA) Proclamation 2014.
“We are proud that LAB-AIDS science curriculum offerings are American-Made” stated David Frank, LAB-AIDS’ President, who added that “our offering include all the material necessary for students to experience science.”
LAB-AIDS’ offerings feature a brand-new Texas version of their middle school program (grades 6, 7 and 8) that was developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley and was designed around the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
LAB-AIDS is also offering their high school biology program, Science and Global Issues: Biology which focuses on how science and sustainability are related. This program was also developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley through a grant from the National Science Foundation.
In addition, LAB-AIDS is offering their high school chemistry program, A Natural Approach to Chemistry, which was authored by Drs. Tom Hsu and Manos Chaniotakis and is 100% conforming to the TEKS.
At LAB-AIDS everything we do is focused on being “A Catalyst for Learning.” We develop, manufacture and publish supplementary and core curriculum products that help students better understand science concepts through direct experience. These experiences truly build a strong and long lasting foundation of knowledge.
LAB-AIDS was established in 1963 by a science teacher based on a unique and exciting idea – to help science teachers offer a more meaningful "hands-on" experience in the classroom by providing them with the materials and equipment that they need to execute actual science experiments with their students, making learning more effective. He knew that when students experience science first-hand they are more engaged and have greater knowledge retention.
From the science materials and equipment that have been the mainstay of our offering for almost 50 years to the middle and high school curriculum that we offer today through partnerships with Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California - Berkeley and others, we have revolutionized science education and today, we are a leader in science curriculum and inquiry-based learning for middle and high schools across America.
