  • Clean your bench before and after use
  • Read the material safety datasheet (MSDS) before using any chemical.
  • Properly handle the hazardous chemical using protective gears.
  • Double check the calculation before weighing any chemicals

Day 2nd
Demonstrate the principle and functioning of various instruments.

Outcome :
Students learned about the best laboratory practices and instrument handling. This will help the students to make an in-depth understanding of laboratory environments. By observing real on hand demonstration of instruments, students understood the principle and application of each instrument.
