Every bionerd knows this one by heart—lab safety is the most important thing. It is our first priority. Most of our reagents used are kid-friendly, but it is important to form a good lab practice and habit from the start. You will learn to protect yourself by using appropriate lab gears. You will become an expert in laboratory ethics to prevent accidents to yourself, others, or the living animals you are working with. Biology is more fun when it’s smooth sailing.
What a wonderful world of insect! Learn how insects give us insight on the power of transformation. They go through fascinating life cycles.
