Teachers are strongly encouraged to become familiar with the hands-on activities and teaching philosophy of BSU CityLab prior to bringing students.  Pre-lab and post-visit materials are provided (see Resources) for most of the modules to help students and teachers maximize experiential learning during their CityLab visit.  In addition, professional development workshops and graduate-level courses are offered that enable classroom teachers to borrow CityLab equipment for use at their schools (see Lending Laboratories).

CityLab at Bridgewater State University is affiliated with the Boston University Medical School CityLab.
