For Local Teachers: Bring your class to the Learn By Doing Lab!

Yes, that's correct we are offering the Learn By Doing Lab (LBDL) this school year and we are so excited!

  1. Limiting the number of students
  2. Cal Poly students are required to follow strict on-campus guidelines https://coronavirus.calpoly.edu/campus-requirements
  3. Your students will wear a mask at all times when inside
  4. Professors are planning on one of the labs being outdoor (this cannot be guaranteed)
  5. Only registering for one quarter at a time 

LBDL spots for Spring 2022 will be filled using a lottery system. This means that slots are not filled on a "first come, first served" basis. The application portal closed on January 17, 2022 at 5:00pm for all interested parties to apply.

Information for Visiting Schools

Who: Local 3rd-8th grade classroom teachers and students interested in experiencing a real world, standards-based, inquiry-driven science curriculum taught by Cal Poly undergraduates planning careers in teaching.

What: An exciting, virtual hands-on learning laboratory

When: Learn By Doing Labs take place Thursday and Friday mornings (9:20-11:30) during Cal Poly's Winter & Spring Quarters (January-March and April-June) for 4th-8th graders.

How: Registration is required to participate.  All applicants will be entered into a lottery, and spots will be filled accordingly.

Where: Cal Poly Campus

Why: By having local 4th-8th grade students engage with Cal Poly students in meaningful science activities, we anticipate the the LBDL will 1) impact the recruitment and education of pre-service teachers, 2) impact the learning and college going expectations of visiting 3rd-8th grade students, and 3) enhance the professional development of teachers who visit the LBDL.
