First Day In The Lab

// February 20th, 2006 // Geekery

Spent 9am to 4pm today in the undergraduate chemistry laboratory. It was fine to start with, heating various substances in test tubes over a bunsen burner, pretty much what I’d expected. The afternoon got fiddly, trying to measure a volume of water to 0.01 mL accuracy in a pipette! It required co-ordination and patience, neither of which are my strong point. Only managed 0.03.

Three more days of lab time and then a big test on Friday.

It was orientation week and there were rather a lot of seventh formers about. Scary to think soon I will be amongst them all, just another boring mature age student!!

    Yes, I’ve noticed those… first years. Do they really have to come to Uni? They make it so much harder to get to the important things (like coffee).
