Health and safety regulations frighten many science teachers away from exciting practical experiments. But there is no need to be afraid: support exists to ensure chemistry demonstrations are practical and safe.
Wendy Butler, a teacher at St James' Catholic High School in Barnet, performs four experiments in a chemistry lesson on reduction-oxidation reactions with her Year 11 class. Her experiments are safe, but not entirely successful. So Wendy has a training session with CLEAPSS (the Consortium of Local Education Authorities for the Provision of Science Services) to ensure the job is done right. She achieves great results.
See the resources and support materials page for links, publications and CLEAPSS' downloadable experiment guide and risk assessment.
