School Science Laboratories: Planning for Sustainability.
School science laboratory planning and building are being required to address long-term educational and structural implications, e.g. the linking of school instruction concerning testing of chemicals and substances with commercial applications in the workplace. This report examines how school science laboratories can be planned for the future by paying attention to the educational, environment, and physical sustainability of their designs. Specific questions are proposed to help in the planning process and examples are provided of schools that have addressed sustainability issue from low cost/no cost to high cost options. (GR)
