As mentioned earlier, the focus of the FunLab is laboratory experimentation. Each meeting starts with a 15-minute lesson to give background on following activities. After the background information of the lesson or concept, an activity or experiment (30 minutes) follows. The conclusion is a student-involved discussion (15 minutes) of the concept covered. Also during the conclusion, guiding questions are answered and feedback on the experiment is given.
