How Students Can do Hands-On Science Safely at Home

Home labs

For science teachers, one of the biggest challenges right now is planning lessons that engage students in blended and remote learning environments. When you consider hands on science, it begs the question: How do we make it safe for students to do science experiments at home?

First thing, of course, is to use only every-day household items, not dangerous chemicals. WeAreTeachers, a virtual teacher’s lounge that shares resources to inspire and support educators, looked to experienced science teachers for lab safety tips and advice to ensure science experiments are safe, equitable, and fun, whether your students are learning at school or home.

Head over to WeAreTeachers to find out what they recommend to help keep your students safe.
