In rural Thailand, students had fewer educational opportunities than their urban counterparts. The goal of our project, sponsored by the Office of H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorns Projects, was to develop an engaging, educationally valuable, sustainable laboratory program for lower-secondary school students in Sakon Nakhon. The goal was achieved in three stages: initial program development, program testing, and program refinement. The result was a science laboratory program that contained the developed experiments as well as supplementary materials for teachers.
