Mobile Science Lab

Most students learn about science from a textbook and movies, but one Augusta science teacher is taking the classroom outdoors with the use of a mobile science lab.

With the help of grants, Paul Tweed was able to convert an old school bus into a moving science lab.

Mr. Tweed says he's able to take his students out into the field and have a hands on approach when learning about science.

The mobile lab has been in use for about a year and a half.

Next year Tweed says they plan to partner with the Beaver Creek Reserve and create a charter school focusing on the natural environment.
