ABOUT OPENSCIED FIELD TEST KITS

 

For the Fall 2019 Field Test there are four categories of equipment and supplies:

  • Standard equipment and supplies. This is a list of required items that are commonly found in middle school science labs. Schools or districts must provide these for participating field test teachers. These items cannot be purchased in OpenSciEd kits. 

  • Locally sourced equipment and supplies. This is a list of items that must be obtained locally by teachers, schools, or districts. Items in this category include items that must be purchased within a day or two of use (e.g., lettuce) or are so easy to obtain (e.g., pennies) or so heavy (e.g., distilled water) that it is not cost effective to ship them. These items cannot be purchased in OpenSciEd kits.

  • Basic equipment and supplies. This is a list of items that can be purchased from general retailers, such as Walmart or Amazon. As part of this list, we provide a link to an item on either the Walmart or Amazon website that meets the requirements for use in the unit. An OpenSciEd kit containing these items can be purchased through BSCS. 

  • Specialized equipment and supplies. This is a list of items that can only be purchased through specialty retailers, such as science supply houses. An OpenSciEd kit containing these items can be purchased through BSCS.
