Lab Safety Can Be Fun!

Help me give my students safe laboratory experiences! New, well fitting, safety glasses and fun, tie-dye lab coats will be excellent motivation to use their safety equipment appropriately.

My Students

I serve an amazing group of students from a wide spectrum of backgrounds and ability levels. From freshmen with low income households, to seniors from affluence, I'm trying to bring them all a love for science. One thing my students all have in common is loss from hurricane Michael. Most were not in evacuation zones, and were home as trees and wind destroyed most of the world they knew. They lost homes, cars, personal belongings, their school, friends who had to move, sports seasons and performances were cancelled. Parents lost jobs, security, and transportation. They lost 5 weeks of school, and we are desperately trying to catch up, in a new school, on a modified schedule, in a whole new reality.

My Project

The lab safety equipment at my school hasn't been replaced in about 8 years. 8 years of lab experiences, 8 years of dirty teenagers' sweaty faces. I try and offer 1 lab experience per week. That's 36 weeks of labs each year. Some labs take multiple days. So, that's over 300 days of use. No amount of sanitizing can get rid of all the yuck. And not all teenagers are "gentle" with the glasses. Now, after Hurricane Michael destroying so much in these students' lives, it sure would be nice to have fresh, clean safety glasses. I have also included tie dye lab coats for the lab manager of each lab group.
