Purdue College of Science Virtual Learning Experiences

Middle & High School Virtual Labs 

We are currently turning our AP Friday labs and Science Express labs into virtual experiences for all. This is a project we are working on weekly. We will be adding to the list regularly. If you have a lab that you would like us to prioritize, let us know. k12science@ 

Check out the 'Sample link' to see what the lab will be like. When you click the 'Teacher copy', you will be asked to make a copy into your drive. The videos will look like they are just photos, but they are links. After you make the copy, you can check out your student view by clicking send and copying the link into your browser. You can make changes to your copy if you would like or assign as is. If you need assistance setting up the Google form, let us know and we will try and help you.

Programs for Elementary Students

Conservation Challenge

Conservation Challenges for elementary students is created through a partnership between Purdue University College of Science and the Tippecanoe County Partnership for Water Quality (TCPWQ) These are quick STEM challenges (for students in grades K-5) that teachers can assign to students during remote instruction. Each video has a link to a Google form that students can use to submit their responses. We will highlight select student responses and post them to our Facebook pages. 

Purdue Kids STEM Degree In Development 

We are creating grade level playlists of videos (3-5 minutes). Each video will be appropriate for students and include standards-based content with ideas for activities that students can complete at home. Students will have the option to complete a quiz (Google Form) at the end of each video where they will earn a code. Collect 10 codes and be eligible to earn a Kids STEM ‘degree’ from Purdue University. This program can be completed individually by students, or together as a class depending on teacher preference.
