Aims

The goal is to provide students with an overview of basic safety rules work in the chemical laboratory, to acquaint students with basic tasks, teach students to work independently in a chemical laboratory with hazardous substances.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

The presence of students at practice is obligatory and is monitored by a tutor. The way how to compensate missed practice lessons will be decided by a tutor depending on the range and content of the missed lessons.
