I have had a request from a student for the above practical.
I have sent him off to find a good method but obviously I need to look into this myself.
Does anyone have any advice, methods, top tips?
Thanks in advance.
Hi, Still relating to our re grading.
Does anyone have one of the old fashioned Lead Technician job descriptions?
Like the ones with the old science outreach stuff and then all the line managing of the subject senior techs.
Obviously we are all very different people, but after the odd mid life crisis and now the regarding/redundancy dramas, I have often thought about a career change.
I have an HNC, not a degree. I did do an apprenticeship at Imperial College. That was amazing.
Worked in labs for 20 years. An odd...
I need to replace the battery in a Fiat 500 with Start/Stop
So, when I search up on some websites a £50 ish battery comes up and then more expensive ones. (this is when I put in the reg, so presumably it only shows the correct battery)
Then I uncover the fact that there are Start/Stop specific...
Hi Enzyme experts.
Biology have been churning this prac out for years and I'm now told it has never worked. But we keep sending it out and having it fail, then washing up and forgetting about it.
Any good methods out there that I can astonish and amaze my lovely teachers with?
20 hours per week.
Very busy dept, super friendly and supportive school.
As you'll see it closes tomorrow but late applications will be accepted.
Asking for a friend (and I really am too!)
Do any of you guys have any experience for tasks for senior posts?
A friend of mine has an interview after half term but the invite hasn't mentioned any tasks (or much at all) He'd like to spend half term prepping for this so any thoughts would be...
Slightly off topic, but I'm sure you can help.
I'm on the panel for a new business manager. Myself and one teacher are staff representatives.
Does anyone have any great ideas of what I should ask, and also what I should be looking out for?
We have a vacancy for a chemistry technician here at KEGS.
Our school is a great place to work, a very sociable and friendly staff. Well behaved, bright boys.
Science dept are a really good bunch.
There are two chem techs both splitting the workload of KS4 and 5 chemistry as they see fit, in...
I know this has come up before, but there is still no recipe card for making nylon.
Searching on CLEAPPS gives a new method for polymerisation. Do you think its on the out as an activity?
I can find the recipe and method easily enough, so I don't need help there. Just wondering what the future...
I wonder if anyone can help.
I am considering applying for a new job and have been told that they can’t tell me the salary as it is based on experience, however the candidate can ask for what they expect and they will work out if it is within the range!
Now I need your help.
It is a very...
This is driving me bonkers.
Our teachers have an unhealthy obsession with nitrile gloves.
If they have a cut on their hand and want to be super protected, rather than just protected its nitriles. If they have a particular dislike for a chemical - Nitriles "cos you know I hate that!"
We are looking at upgrading our EHT and the HOD quite fancies the unilab one
Any feedback (good or bad) out there?
I think we might stretch to some new shrouded leads too, again any thoughts...
Some of you might be aware of some rumours going around about the company being in trouble.
I have spoken to them about some things and just to confirm they are stronger than ever and would love everyone to know that they are not going anywhere.
Carry on ordering with the same confidence as...
This is going to be odd but please bear with me.
Anyone out there recently been convinced to change suppliers?
It's one of those cases of if it is relevant you will probably know what I mean. I have been visited by a rep who has tried to convince me to go with them and have used a very specific...
My chemistry technician was making up 2 litres of 1M Sodium Carbonate using newly opened, arrived a few months ago, stock of sodium carbonate 10 water.
Using the CLEAPPS recipe book he used 286.14 x 2 into 2 litres of distilled water.
He noted that it didn't look the same as the 10 year old...
