This project addressed the problem of student engagement by giving teachers a set of laboratory lesson plans that can be preformed outdoors. These lessons let the instructor move his/her classroom outside to do experiment in the environment that they occur. The labs were designed to be completed in any type of environmental setting in which a school might be located and with limited instructor preparation time. The last chapter of this paper includes a section containing feedback from experts pertaining to the validity of this project.
