In this project, we investigated how small-scale chemistry experiments increased student interest in science. DOW teachers received training and kits for their classroom that include small-scale laboratory materials. Students and teachers in various schools were surveyed and interviewed. We found that small-scale experiments were cheaper, easier to implement, and piqued student interest in science. However, less experienced teachers from under-funded schools struggled to implement the experiments. We recommend resources such as handbooks, training, and a network to support these teachers.
