Students show and explain different science laboratory practices that can be carried out in online classes, using tech tools, apps and household materials that replace the ones used in the lab. They will demonstrate how learning science through online practice is as significant and meaningful as face-to-face learning.
|Audience:||Principals/head teachers, Teachers, Coaches|

|Additional detail:||Student presentation|
Students participate in the design and execution of science lab practices in online environments investigating different Science topics, designing the practices and experiments, and choosing the resources, apps and simulators that better adapt and support the application of Science concepts in diverse contexts, such as Science Journal, Khan Academy, Decibel X, Smart Tools, Tape Measure, Conversor, PhET, The Elements, among other tools.
° Let students play an active role in their learning process.
° Provide students more options about how to work and how to express their own learning.
° Develop scientific reasoning abilities by thinking "out-of-the-box" to design and carry out new assignments.
° Strengthen teamwork abilites sharing responsibilities, listening to others' opinions, considering everybody's ideas, and working together to achieve a shared goal and create fun and significant lab practices.
° Boost students' confidence in developing problem solving skills.
° Foster engagement, motivation, and responsibility by letting students make decisions about the design and tech tools used in the science lab practice.
° Communicate in Spanish and English (second language) to explain the purpose of their presentation and tech tools used for this project.
