How Students Can Do Hands-On Science Safely at Home

One of the biggest challenges for science teachers right now is planning lessons that include experiments. We Are Teachers offers lab safety tips for making it safe to do science experiments at home:

  • Use materials that are safe for and accessible to all students
  • Ensure students have adult supervision
  • Get feedback from a colleague to ensure clarity
  • Provide instructions in multiple formats
  • Film yourself doing the experiment
  • Have students sign a lab safety agreement
  • Connect science to current events
