Thank You For Watching
1. Follow your teacher, stay in line and don’t wander or touch anything you’re not supposed to.

2. Ask your teacher before doing an experiment.

3. Read all directions and pay attention to any announcements your teacher has for you or your class.

4. Before you start, ask your teacher where all the fire alarms, fire extinguishers and eye wash stations are.

5. Never attempt a science experiment alone, an adult must always accompany you.

6. When working in a lab, walk with extreme caution, beware of cables, power cords and spills. Keep all belongings in a safe place away from any chemicals. Make sure your workstation is always clean and never cluttered.

7. While in the lab dress appropriately, wear close-toed shoes, a lab coat or apron, tie back any hair and remove dangling jewelry that could get in your way. Also remember to wear gloves and safety goggles if you are dealing with chemicals. Some hair or body products like hairspray or lotion can catch on fire and should not be worn in the lab.

8. Never touch, taste, smell or mix any chemicals together.

9. When using sharp tools like knives, handle with EXTREME CAUTION!

10. Pick up animals and plants very carefully and wash your hands when you’re done.

11. When you’re done with an experiment clean up your station. Unplug any electrical equipment and wait for further instructions from your teacher.

12. And lastly, have fun!
