    STEM/PLTW

    Lab Use and Safety Contract

     

    Know class Rules and Procedures, you are responsible for following them.

     

    The STEM/ PLTW Technology Lab is an interesting place to learn and build, but due to the “hands on” nature of our activities, responsible behavior is expected.

     

    In order to insure the safety and well being of students and of the STEM lab equipment, the following contract must be initialed and signed by the student and his/her parents before students will be allowed to work on the STEM/ PLTW labs/hands on projects.

     

    THANK YOU.
