Science Safety Reminder

Hi Everyone


In light of what recently happened when a high school teacher in Duluth, Georgia conducted a demonstration that went wrong, I feel it is important to remind all science teachers of the dangers of some types of science demonstrations in the classroom.  Do Not Use Methanol-Based Flame Tests on Open Lab Desks Please refer to the NSTA position statement for more details.


Science department chairs and team leaders, please remind all science teachers of the importance of safety at all times in the science classroom. This includes using goggles when working with liquids, and solids such as salt water, sugar water, oils, vinegar, sand, salt, sugar, alka seltzer, rocks, etc. At this time of the year it might be a good idea to have a quick staff meeting about science safety in the classroom.
