Facilities and resources
Campbell College has four Chemistry laboratories. In addition, the Department has well-stocked preparation rooms, and smaller rooms with particular functions, such as storage of dry, wet and hazardous materials. All Chemistry teachers have their own laboratories, which combine a desk area for class teaching, and bench space for practical work. The bench areas have a full range of services. This arrangement allows great flexibility both in terms of room layout, and in use of time, with the transition between practical and theoretical activity able to be made very quickly.
Safety is a major concern in modern science teaching. All our staff has received appropriate safety training, and a wide range of safety-related equipment, such as extractor fans and fume cupboards (two in fixed cupboards in each Chemistry lab), is in use.
All the Chemistry laboratories are equipped with data projectors and a networked computer for easy use of IT, including Internet access and electronic data logging.
