As NSTA’s chief science safety compliance adviser, I look forward to sharing the latest safety compliance information, while helping teachers solve safety-related problems and issues in the classroom, lab, and maker space. I’m also looking forward to interacting with colleagues to help improve science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education in the trenches.
Specifically, NSTA has initiated this new safety blog to:
- share up-to-date information on legal safety standards and better professional practices for a safer working and learning environment and a safer STEM instructional experience;
- disseminate current information on safety incidents occurring in K–12 classrooms, labs, and maker spaces; and
- provide support and initiate dialogue in efforts to answer safety-related questions from bloggers, either teaching or supervising in K–12 classrooms, labs, and maker spaces.
Students learn STEM best by doing, not just reading. Make it a memorable hands-on experience by incorporating safety! Encourage your friends and colleagues to subscribe to the NSTA Blog and share their experiences and knowledge about safer science education experiences.
Have a safer day!
