Foundation Stage: Essential skills

1. Safety Skills

Giving students tools can feel a little intimidating as teachers worry about student safety. Outline safety procedures and expectations for all club activities, and then observe who is following them. Those exhibiting science club skills in safety deserve a badge not only for their own good judgment and personal responsibility, but also for setting a positive example for their peers.

  • Eye protection must be worn during all labs.
    Safety Glasses should be provided; however, some students may wish to bring their own that may be more comfortable.
  • Rubber gloves must be worn when handling certain chemicals.
    Gloves will be provided
  • Hair elastics must be used to tie back long hair.
    Spare elastics will be available
  • Old clothes are recommended. We use chemicals that can stain clothes.
    Students may wear an apron or lab coat if they have one
