Registration will open up as Cal Poly solidifies their covid guidelines.
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's afternoon (October- November) and Thursday and Friday mornings during Cal Poly's Winter & Spring Quarters (January-March and April-June) for 5th-8th graders. Wednesday mornings during Cal Poly's Spring Quarter (April-June) for 3rd-4th graders.
How: Registration is required to participate. All applicants will be entered into a lottery, and spots will be filled accordingly.
Why: By having local 3rd-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.
