Talking science lab safety before those exciting hands-on labs? We now have created a safety video clip: https://youtu.be/MEIXRLcC6RA. It includes the discussion of proper lab attire, importance of proper disposal of materials, precautions when heating substances, and the importance of the MSDS. As mentioned throughout the video, these are only general safety guidelines and there are many more that may be applicable to specific labs- always read specific lab guidelines. Oh, and it also has a free corresponding handout!
Why are common names not as useful as scientific names? Well they can vary by location. And language. And...they may be completely inaccurate. Like this one---the Giant Danger Guppy. :D
Learn more about classification from our classification video and check out our matching handout!
So @NASAMoon tweeted that NASA will be capitalizing "S" in Sun and "M" in Earth's Moon: https://twitter.com/NASAMoon/status/888435642014863360 …
We LOVE it.
