Description

MicroPhySci Kit / Integrated Physics and Chemistry AOP

The MicroPhySci Kit provides an academically challenging laboratory curriculum for students in grades 7-10. It is intended as the laboratory portion of a physical science (integrated physics and chemistry) course providing a full year of labs.
(For curricula coordination with Alpha Omega click here).
 
The MicroPhySci Kit includes a 112- page manual with seventeen lab experiments. The manual explains each experiment covering:

- Goals
The goals section outlines the major learning areas of the experiment.
- Background
The background would be equivalent to a short lecture on the theory of the experiment.
- Materials and Equipment
Get the mentioned equipment out of the kit and you are good to go. Any items not included in the kit like ice, sugar, hot water, etc. are also mentioned in this area, as well as at the beginning of each experiment.
- Procedure
Just follow the step by step procedure to do the experiment. Instructions are clearly explained making it easy for students, homeschool parents, and teachers/instructors.
- Results
Students answer questions in the results area. This gives students a better understanding as well as a record of their completion.
 
We have designed the MicroPhySci Kit in order to make teaching and preparation very convenient for the instructor. It contains all materials necessary except for a few common household items. The kit contains sufficient materials to perform every experiment five times.
 
The chemistry portion of the physical science lab is based on the Microscale method which uses about 1/100th of the chemicals a typical lab would consume. The chemical reagents are supplied in dropper bottles that are ready-to-go and do not require any mixing or further preparation. Use with adult supervision, for ages 14 and up.
