Balasubramanian Sengottuvelan (University of Madras, India)

There is a large rush among the student community in India to take up IT careers as a result of myths associated with the use of hazardous chemicals in the laboratory. It has become difficult to get well qualified students in basic sciences. This presentation will discuss how practical demonstrations are essential to dispel the myths surrounding the use of chemicals in the laboratory. The presentation essentially highlights the importance of carrying out demonstrations among high school and college students. It will also emphasize the need for safety in the laboratory and use of  MSDS for all the chemicals handled in the laboratory. The proper use of laboratory equipment will also be discussed.
