An Inquiry & Design-Based Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education Program

Alignment with NRC Core Goals for Laboratory Science

In 2006, The National Research Council (NRC) published America's Lab Report in which the panel reported on the status of laboratory science in secondary classrooms and made recommendations for improved practice. Many of the NRC recommendations had already been incorporated into MWM. The table below articulates the striking similarities between the NRC core goals for improved laboratory practice and MWM module features.
