**IMPORTANT
• Due to policy changes in the DOE Office of After School Professional Development, the Winter/Spring 2011 certificate training will not be offered for P-Credits.
• Participants who would like to receive Professional Development Hours will receive a certificate of completion for proof of participation.

Training will provide conceptual context and connections to New York-based science research, lab planning and preparation, and classroom implementation. An online Lab Center accompanies each lab with pre- and post-lab activities, video interviews and animations, and a teacher portal to share lab write-ups and teaching tips. Participating schools can check out an equipment footlocker and reagent/supply kits that support each targeted experiment.
