Come prepared:
Download, print, and READ each Unit BEFORE the lab. There are leading questions throughout each unit that can help you have a better lab experience.

Wear closed-toed shoes--you will not be allowed to come into the lab without them.

Have chemical safety goggles (not the same as safety glasses) ready each week. Some labs require them, and you will be asked to leave if you do not have them available.You can find these at the bookstore or the hardware store.


Lab is an important part of any science course. This is where you get your hands on the scientific method! It can even be fun. Not every lab, but some!
