I have posted the most recent update from LABRats below. LABRats is a national program that is being developed by the Society for Amateur Scientists. For more information, check out my original post or go directly to the LABRats website:
Dear LABRats enthusiast,
LABRats held its first program development meeting recently. The proceedings are now posted on the new LABRats Development web page at http://www.sas.org/labrats/LABRatsDvpt.html
We are thrilled that so many world STEM education experts have joined the LABRats Program Content Committee. Among the members are representatives from Museum of Science in Boston, Harvard, Tufts, Northeastern, and UMass Boston. Everyone was exremely enthusiastic and supportive of the LABRats concept. In fact, one of the only concerns raised was that college may be disappointing to LABRRats participants after such a rich and
rewarding experience with the program in middle and high school. For more details, I invite you to review the meeting summary and presentations on the web page.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Society for Amateur Scientists
Director of Program Development
