Novare Science & Math has the goal of helping educators of all sorts implement excellent an science education program. In the chemistry lab, this means bringing students into the real chemist experience. It requires effort, skill, and patience – learning and observing universal safety procedures, use of correct terminology, use of apparatus, skills of measurement, recording, documentation, cleanup and waste disposal. The best educated students will also take some time to learn the background of an experiment, how to analyze results, and how to write a premier lab report.
