Lab Safety

Lab safety resources - any lab class needs to start by addressing safety. Students often find this extremely boring, some illustrative stories will help keep them engaged and provide a framework for keeping track of the many rules of a lab.

Illustrative videos on lab safety. We believe these are appropriate for any high school class but please preview them 
Karen Wetterhahn's tragic story. Real life example of the need for proper PPE.

One of the saddest stories of science. Karen Wetterhahn's wonderful career and life were cut short because of the lack of early knowledge of proper PPE. 

An old safety video. Aimed at chemistry labs, educational and guaranteed to induce groans.

Note: This video has an opportunity to spot a couple of errors. The students are not wearing gloves or lab coats in a number of scenes!

A more up to date and entertaining video. Again, primarily aimed at chemistry but general enough for any lab course.

You may be aware of this video series already as they're quite popular. If not, take a look, they're well made. Although we wouldn't recommend every video as some can be crude.


Resources related to the equipment used in biology laboratories. Currently these are introductory materials. We'll be adding resources for more advanced students / classes in time. 

Scientific Process & Mindset

Some introductory material to get your students thinking. Learning how to think analytically is a difficult process for most students. These resources should help get them started.

Extras & Others
