Kapila, Vikram; Iskander, Magued – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2014
A student's first introduction to engineering and technology is typically through high school science labs. Unfortunately, in many high schools, science labs often make use of antiquated tools that fail to deliver exciting lab content. As a result, many students are turned off by science, fail to excel on standardized science exams, and do not…
