    iPad Requisition Sheets/Systems

    Thats tough.... we have 5 teachers and 2 trainess, and 12 ipads. one teacher ALWAYS books them in before anyone else, and he has had comments from everyone regarding this. so I totally feel your pain. you may be able to split them up into 2 sets of 15 if that is at all possible, and you can try...

    Are techs sometimes too hard on themselves?

    yeah we can be hard on ourselves sometimes, but we are all human and often forget stuff. I do what I can and let the teachers know, but then anything after that is on them. dont be hard on yourself and remember we are all in the same boat - you are not alone. have a good day :)

One teacher missed the trial as she was unwell, so I firmly said no prac as trial wasnt done. it hasnt always been like this here, but after a few things like CuO in sinks...

    Making rates of reaction micro kits

    where is it on CLEAPSS? it sounds interesting. i have made other microscale items for the electrolysis, and I used a soldeiring iron to burn the hole into the plastic. i have also used a hot nail to get the desired size of hole.

    Piddle tests

    i used yellow food colouring or tea bags. I once told the group ready to do the prac, that they had better use it as I spent ages making it:laughing: :p:p the look on their faces was priceless and they were genuinely horrified. like the thought of adding ammonia for the smell...
