Is this for me?

The laboratory skills workshop will develop a range of practical skills for the science laboratory, delivered ahead of the formal learning period. A suite of techniques will be demonstrated and practiced across two intensive days. Students during the two-day period will be asked to follow set procedures and methods, and apply well-developed technical skills, basic scientific knowledge and become familiar with Work Health and Safety requirements.
