Family Science Investigation: Introduction to Laboratory Measurement
A lab may appear overwhelming with all the strangely-shaped glassware, hoses, clamps and measuring equipment. In this class we’ll bring order and a sense of familiarity to the lab by learning the names and functions of basic glassware, like beakers, volumetric flasks and graduated cylinders. We will practice accurate measuring using a variety of tools including pipette pumps, digital scales, 3-beam scales and displacement containers. Finally, you will put your new found skills to the test by measuring unknown quantities and densities.
Family Science Investigations programs offer families an opportunity to participate together in monthly science classes related to Museum research, including topics in ecology, paleontology, geology and biology. These classes are especially useful for homeschoolers looking for additional reinforcement to curriculum goals, or any family group that simply enjoys learning together!
Program Instructor: Bob Alderink, Coordinator for Natural World investigate Lab.
