Safety issues are a significant consideration in the teaching of microbiology as the subject is practical-based and there is potential for exposure to infectious organisms.
The Chemical Management Handbook was developed by Science ASSIST in recognition of a need for guidance on the safe handling, storage and waste disposal of chemicals in schools.
Nicole Miller, Bachelor of Science student at the University of South Australia, presents a video on the value of teaching the scientific process to children.
This online resource is a Science ASSIST Connected Learning Experience (CLE) to help teach Year 7 students about the connected nature of ecosystems and the flow of energy through them.

Labelling of solutions: This may have been asked before but do diluted solutions of chemicals need to be labeled with the new GHS and if so, do the ones that I have now have to be re-labeled or is
Labelling silver nitrate and silver nitrate solutions: I am labeling some Silver nitrate solution with Gold FFX and saw that it doesn't come up with any Pictograms but says it is harmful to aquatic
Animal skeleton: One of our teachers can get a sheep skeleton from someone. The sheep died in a field and the bones are now devoid of any flesh.
This downloadable document contains quick links to the Connected Learning Experiences that have been developed by Science ASSIST.
Use of lead in ACT schools: From reading answers to another question, it's my understanding that lead is banned in some Australian jurisdictions, and approved or restricted in others.
Chemical Register / SDS: Re: Personal Care products (shampoos, cosmetics, etc.) and foodstuffs stored in the Science department at my school for use in experiments.
