Caltech students are eligible to participate in the 3 lab sessions held during the term.

Completion of safety training for the Lewis labs in Noyes is required prior to entering the laboratory.

The safety-training sessions were held during the week of Jan 9. If you missed these sessions and want to participate in the labs, please coordinate with Annelise Thompson for safety training during the next routine monthly safety-training session for the Lewis labs in Noyes. Safety training in Noyes is held on the first Monday of the month, so the next session normally would be Feb 6 (but again, coordinate with Annelise).

Prior to attending the safety training, download and watch this video (*.m4v) and read this manual (*.pdf).

Please bring safety glasses and a lab (if you have them).
