Archive: Are your Lab SOPs in Place for a Safer School Year?, September 16, 2021

As the 2021–2022 school year approaches and things are getting closer to “normal,” it’s time to re-establish our STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) spaces (for the purposes of this web seminar, STEM spaces include a science lab, technology and engineering lab [i.e., construction lab], makerspace, etc.) and make sure everything is safer for the new school year. Our students need to explore their curiosities and develop their skills in a hands-on, inquiry-based environment that is safer and up-to-date. Our responsibility through Duty or Standard of Care requires that we protect our students and our staff members by providing safer STEM spaces. Just because things are returning to normal does not mean that they are normal. Take the time to make things right.

We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.
