We're Cool About Science Safety!

My students need 30 safety glasses, an eyewash station, and a bin for broken glass.

My Students

Everyone knows that science lab safety is very important. Each year I hear the same question, "Mrs. Fane, why don't we have an eyewash station?" My response, "We'll use the sink until we can get one." Our safety eyewear is outdated, and we need a receptacle for broken glass. Please help.

I teach about 80 seventh grade students.

They are very inquisitive and very motivated students. Many have developed a love for science and desire to learn more about scientific concepts and ideas. Our Middle school is one of six middle schools in our School District. It is a public school serving low-middle income families in the north county suburban area of St. Louis. 99.2% of the student population is African-American and 81% of students receive free and reduced lunch. My students are resilient.

My Project

Students are expected to wear safety eyewear during the entire lab experiment. Some experiments run a full 30-40 minutes and the current eyewear we have is both inhibiting and uncomfortable, causing students to want to take breaks during the lab to get relief for their eyes. The lenses fog up after only 5 minutes of use, causing the face to sweat and subjecting the students to great discomfort. 30 new safety glasses would fix this eyewear problem. The eyewash station is essential in a science lab, especially when using chemicals. My classes have a chemistry unit in which they have hands-on experiences with a variety of chemicals. If students eyes have been exposed to a chemical, they can go to the eyewash station and flush the eye for the recommended 10 minutes without interruption. Currently, my students would need to flush the eye without direct contact from the water, but using their hands in the process. An official receptacle for broken glass (test tubes, beakers, and flasks) would offer a safe substitute to my cardboard box labeled broken glass.

Middle school students are very impressionable.

These fixtures to my science lab will encourage safety practices while also fostering feelings of authenticity in which they esteem themselves as "real scientists".
