Ballard High School Project

Students Using Labscape at Ballard High School Our first pilot project to test the Labscape system in an educational setting took place in the spring of the 2002 school year. A select group of students at Ballard High School used flat-panel, touchscreen computers running the Labscape system to carry out experiments from the genetics curriculum. Students performed a DNA extraction, polymerase chain reaction, and gel electrophoresis with Labscape guiding them through the procedure and capturing data throughout the experiment. Preliminary results for learning potential and usability were very positive, and the project will be expanded to three schools in the coming academic year (2002-2003).
We would like to acknowledge the sponsorship of the Learning Science & Technology group at Microsoft and Intel Higher Education, whose generous support made the CSI-Labscape pilot project at Ballard High School a possibility.
