Seeing things differently
Middle School Science Minute
by Dave Bydlowski (k12science or firstname.lastname@example.org)
I was recently reading the December, 2012 issue of Science Scope, a publication of the National Science Teachers Association for middle school teachers. In the monthly section, "Scope on Safety "written by Ken Roy, director of environmental health and safety for Glastonbury Public Schools in Glastonbury, CT, he wrote about using heat sources safely in the middle school science laboratory. The article was entitled "Turning Up the Heat on Safety." Safety-wise, the hot plate is probably by far the best choice.
