Re: Classroom balances

Yes it is comeback time! ​When I joined CLEAPSS we had notification of chemcial balances stolen in nealy every school and indeed from the CLEAPSS labs themselves. Now the thieves do not bother as they can buy them cheaply for themselves. Enjoy the revenge! Bob

Re: Classroom balances

I would just add that we bought a class set similar to Bob's recommendation and they've been a great success with all year groups. You can buy (or cut) foam inserts for Gratnell trays and that works well for storage - it's easy to check they are all back in at the end of the lesson, too. Our best purchase of the year, I think. L.
