LifeSmarts is excited to offer middle school teams the opportunity to go on a quest — a safety quest! The JV XPLORLABS Quest is provided in partnership with UL and its safety engineering module on portable electrical power.

Coaches may use this lesson in the classroom and in team practice. Students will learn how consumers can safely use lithium ion batteries. Everything you need is right here!
