Drying Hands in the Lab.
In the March, 2012 issue of Science Scope, a publication of the National Science Teachers Association, the safety question of the month was "Are there any alternatives to paper towels for students to wash and dry their hands with at the end of lab?"
Ken Roy, director of environmental health and safety for Glastonbury Public Schools in Glastonbury, Connecticut provides a great answer. If you would like more information on science safety, you can purchase Ken's book, "The NSTA Ready-Reference Guide to Safer Science," through the NSTA bookstore. Please visit:

Dartmouth Researchers Are Learning How Exercise Affects the Brain
Are today's students truly 'tech savvy'?
It is difficult to prove that the Generation Y and young people today are not more technologically adapted than their older counterparts.
They may sometimes display an unhealthy level of dependence on their mobile phone, become bored easily when taught in school how to use basic commands in Microsoft Word and be called upon often to fix the problem with the printer, but are all members of this age bracket clued-up and comfortable with technology?
According to the research, there was little evidence that today’s students demand modern technology when entering university that the academic institution cannot provide. Technological integration is expanding, however in terms of study, students may not be as reliant on it to learn as we stereotype them to be.
Congrats to Mike Muir, AMLE President-Elect!
