Announcements

Specialist Professional Development for

Science Teachers and Laboratory Technicians

We are pleased to announce that we will be presenting a series of in-depth training sessions at our new premises in Knoxfield. We expect this will be a great opportunity for teachers and technicians to get a solid background in the topics being presented. The emphasis will be on explaining how our novel education resources can be used, and showing you the best way to prepare and integrate them with your science teaching activities.

Each session will run from 1:30pm to 4:00pm with refreshments, notes and product samples provided to all participants. A nominal charge of $28.00 payable by credit card, per person (payable at the time of booking) applies to cover catering and consumables. If your school does not have the flexibility of a credit card, please contact us to make an alternate arrangement. For these bookings the cost will be slightly higher, $38.00, to accommodate the extra processing work involved with a non-credit card transaction.

Our next training session will be held on Thursday, 16th November 2017, on the topic of Understanding and measuring pH with OHAUS.

The concept of pH is a fundamental aspect of chemistry that students hear about from an early stage. Even people with very little scientific knowledge are aware of pH as a result of activities such as maintaining a swimming pool. For those studying or working in a scientific field, it is important to know not only the theory behind pH, but also the practical aspects of measuring it. This workshop will present some tips for correctly measuring pH and maintaining and trouble-shooting pH meters and electrodes. We will also look at preparing standard solutions, understanding how buffer solutions work, the usefulness of indicators and other ways of measuring pH. To conclude, we will also consider testers for measuring salinity and conductivity of solutions.

This workshop will be co-presented by Corinne Winch, technical representative from OHAUS Australia

This workshop is suitable for teachers and technicians.
