Teaching laboratories differ from research labs in a number of ways. They require space for teaching equipment, such as a lectern and marker boards; they require storage space for student microscopes, book bags, and coats; and they have less instrumentation than in research labs. Also, teaching labs must support a wide range of dynamic activity from standard lectures to active team-based inquiry with all the tools and technology necessary to enable any teaching and learning task easily.
Teaching labs provide students first-hand experience with course concepts and the opportunity to explore methods used by scientists in their discipline.
Teaching labs at Michigan Tech are designed to support students in their education by providing hands-on science so students learn by doing through practical exercises and research.
