Playing it Safe!

 

Introduction:  
  We all know what happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar, or drop Mentos candy in a carbonated drink. A chemical reaction happens and thats fun to watch, but messy to clean up.
Mixing or spilling chemicals in a laboratory, however, can have dangerous consequences. We have safety protocols. These protocols give students who enroll in science classes the knowledge of how procedures work in labs to ensure safety. Before students can participate in labs they would need to learn that responsible chemical research must be conducted safely according to the best practices.
In this WebQuest you will be given an opportunity to created projects to help other students understand the importance of being safe in a science lab.
