Mrs B's Science Class - Lab Notebook Format
These courses were then converted to an online format with single students working in remote environments with access to shared robot hardware. The mechanical design portion was eliminated with attention focused only on software control of a single robotic architecture and electronic-only lab notebook format requirements (as opposed to handwritten notes). A fixed hardware platform (Khepera robot) was used to keep the same level of functionality of the physical robot for all students as well as providing a robot simulator for individual use.

Well, that’s no longer a dream; it’s now eminently possible! In fact it’s easy! We’ve just optimized the sample management system in our eCAT electronic lab notebook for the iPad/iPhone. Here’s how it works.
ResearchSpace is a pioneer in thedevelopment of collaborative online web-based electronic lab notebookELN for scientific data management and inventory sample trackingsolutions for biology and biomedical scientific and clinical research.Once you have selected a lab notebook, the following tips and techniques will help you get started keeping an organized, well-maintained lab notebook for your science or engineering project:Otter's Christian Biology is a labor of love that reaches beyond Otter to other moms that are in the homeschooling trenches. We tried other science programs before embarking on this adventure with Otter but unfortunately with little success or real retention. My son finds the core components appealing: a digital text with occasional embedded video instruction(Mr. Anderson is a favorite) and a workbook with fun cartoons. Some of the awesome optional resources we have used include the Human Planet & Life video series(he loves these), Biology Coloring Workbook, and Ellen McHenry's games.
For labwork we have used the Illustrated Guide to Home Biology Experiments (IGHBE) almost exclusively (we purchased our supplies from Home Scientist and the microscope as recommended in the the guide). The labs in IGHBE are rigorous and have been the most difficult part of the program, partly because we chose to use a real lab notebook format. I would probably only attempt half of the suggested IGHBE labs if you choose to build a lab notebook as suggested by Mr. Thompson, the author of IGHBE. However, the quality of the labs is superb and the personal support by Mr. Thompson is PHENOMENAL. The cost of the labs is staggering if you are purchasing for one child but since we have 7 children we viewed it as a long term investment. We were also of the opinion that lab experience is really the heart of any science program. My son has a lot of confidence now using a microscope and is very comfortable donning his gloves and goggles. Of course, we won't talk about my son's handwriting in the lab notebook!
As a supplement for the defense of intelligent design, we use Discovering Intelligent Design (by Kemper) rather than the suggested Answers in Genesis materials (which we have used in the past). There is a wealth of information and activities in this manual & workbook combo. The information is presented from a purely scientific viewpoint and does not use scripture to defend creationism.
Jennifer, thank you for pouring out your energy, talent, and sweat into such an undertaking! You have blessed our family in a very tangible way and I believe that my son is truly taking "Honors Biology". Looking forward to chemistry next year! God Bless!
