Open Science Education
Teaching science in secondary school or high school often relies on proprietary lab equipment and related curriculum resources. This is both expensive and limiting.
What if we could develop our own equipment and curriculum?
This page demonstrates how flexible hardware and freely available programming tools can help provide open science education.
