Each “Lab in a Box” activity is intended to teach students how to observe, to ask questions, to come up with hypotheses, to experiment; to critically acquire and evaluate information; to deal with uncertainty and the unexpected; to value different opinions, to collaborate; to take on attitudes and values towards sustainability and civic responsibility.

The “Lab in a Box” team develops and adapts simple, detailed and appealing experimental activities with a strong ecological component, that are integrated in the subject-area curricula of different regions and learning levels. All “Lab in a Box” activities can be visualized and downloaded separately, or in a Teacher’s Guide + Lab Notebook format, compiled and edited for specific school years and curricula.
