Science table and lab furniture maker Diversified Woodcrafts has recently created a video that expertly compares each type of science table surface available. “No surface is perfect, you’ll need to look at the pros & cons of each.” School and commercial laboratories all work under different conditions, thus varying work surfaces are required. To better understand which lab table will suit your application best, check out this video explaining the pros and cons of each.
For many students, time spent in the science lab is the highlight of the school day. After all, there is nothing like the exhilarating thrill of discovery that hands-on science activities provide. Of course, science labs have their fair share of hazards–toxic chemicals, fire sources, sharp instruments, and more. It is crucial, then, to have good safety practices in place.
Even when following all safety protocols and procedures, though, accidents can and do happen in the lab. Chemicals get spilled, mixtures react, and things catch fire. This is why science lab safety stations and emergency equipment are an important part of any lab. Here are some tips to make the most of your safety station.
School science labs supply students with a unique hands-on learning experience.
While labs allow students to experience the fascinating world of discovery, they also place them in situations that have the potential to become dangerous. The use of toxic chemicals and fire makes safety in the science lab a subject every teacher must address. The tips provided below can help students stay safe while exploring the world of science.
Looking for a new experiment for your science classroom? The Keeping Science Real team from Diversified Woodcrafts has created another practical and entertaining video demonstrating an experiment with quicksand. The experiment is simple and you only need cornstarch, water, and a mobile science desk so the whole class can see. Oh, and you will need a toy horse to sink, naming him Artax is optional. Enjoy the experiment and pass it along
