Nurturing Young Scientists Through Biotechnology Exploration
LabX is a comprehensive lab kit which integrates biotechnology exploration into STEM learning. Empower your students to make great scientific discoveries and develop a lifelong passion in STEM through LabX!
Relevant Learning Experiences
LabX is a kit of everyday science. With its simple setup and carefully-curated experiments, students relate concepts from everyday learning in school to the real world for meaningful learning - an opportunity to reinforce and extend learning.
Sound Pedagogical Design
Building on the widely-recognized Inquiry-based approach and the 5E instructional model, LabX and its experiments are designed for an active learning experience that promotes scientific literacy, inquisitiveness, and self-directed learning.
Strengthen Key Competencies
LabX hones knowledge, skills, and attitudes to help develop important competencies (OECD Education 2030) to prepare children for the challenges of the future world. S.T.E.M and Biotechnology integration also introduce new opportunities in the world ahead.
