The School Science Lab DOT System
If there is one thing about science chemical labs it is that their inventories are generally a mess. One way to keep them organized is to get rid of the chemicals that are not used annually by performing a chemical sweep. But determining which chemicals were used and which weren’t is anyone’s guess. Until now. With the simple use of a the DOT system, teachers can mark the bottle and products with a “dot” sticker when they use them. Doing a lab? Dot it. Used a little? Dot it.
Products without stickers haven’t been used all year. Making it easy to identify and ask the question – do I really need this? If not, get rid of it.
