Why Science in Motion?
Science In Motion allows students to complete hands-on, inquiry based labs using scientific equipment that will help to prepare them to enter careers in science, engineering and other technical fields. The labs available for students to complete are aligned to the PA State Standards. The SIM program here at LCCC will prep experiments, order chemicals, provide safety materials and dispose of chemicals used all at no cost to the school.
Through Science In Motion, schools have the opportunity to access multiple sets of equipment they couldn’t otherwise afford to purchase. SIM provides support to schools by giving them the opportunity to access well-maintained, modern scientific equipment and supplies.
Schools can not only borrow equipment, but they can also request a Mobile Educator to their classrooms. Mobile Educators will not only deliver equipment to your classroom, but they can also provide team teaching in the classroom or act as an assistant to the teacher when running a SIM lab.
During the school year, SIM will host professional development at the LCCC Schnecksville campus (or other sites) for teachers to learn how to use the equipment in their classrooms and stay up to date on the latest advancements. Information about the next sessions to be offered will be posted on the LCCC SIM website at least one month ahead of time and will be emailed to all of the teachers on our contact list, as well as the principals from our sponsoring schools.
A priority for providing SIM services next school year will be given to teachers who have undergone any of our training workshops. Participants in the workshops will receive a certificate of training, a workshop manual, and .
Enrollment in the workshops will be limited to 30 participants per session on a first-come, first-served basis. Tell your friends!
