Remember, This is a NO INJURY ZONE

SAFETY FIRST!!!
When dealing with electricity or other potentially dangerous forces or objects--Use your head. 

As with any science experiments, Stay Alert and Proceed with Caution.  Most accidents are a combination of small, innocent looking things that by themselves look harmless, but together become big and dangerous. 

The best accident is the one that NEVER happened. 

Check it out with an expert or the adult in charge to be very sure you will be safe and injury free.


We call our class lab space:
SCAM Lab
S.C.A.M
. stands for Science Contraptions and Amazing Machines.  This describes our activities and captures the spirit of the Robotics Class pretty accurately.
