This capstone project will consist of modifying Living Environment labs used by teachers in the Greece Central School District. Modification of these labs will reflect current research in science education including Web-based learning, the use of modeling, the impact of various lab styles, and various sociocultural factors. Students will be provided a higher quality laboratory experience which will yield higher academic achievement and understanding of science concepts. Increased academic achievement will further result in credit accrual for students in the Living Environment course and students meeting the minimum laboratory requirement for the Regents exam.
