Students will also need to purchase any necessary materials to conduct the research data and build the display summarizing the process and data. In your logbook, specifically describe all materials and equipment. (Example: brand, lot number, expiration date, etc.) |
When you purchase supplies, buy more than enough to avoid switching batch or lot numbers.
