The interactive lab primer


Use our interactive lab primer to support your students' transition from school to university. It is a visual aid to common laboratory techniques and covers all the core safety information, skills and apparatus.



The interactive lab primer was developed as part of the 'Chemistry for our future'  Royal Society of Chemistry Teacher Fellowship Scheme. With contributions from Prof. David Read (The University of Southampton), Mr David Brentnall (The University of Nottingham), Dr Sandy Wilkinson (The University of Birmingham), Mr William Davey (The University of Sheffield), and Dr Anna Bertram (The University of Nottingham).
