Efficient (compared to how it was). I have remodelled the prep room to make my prepping as efficient as possible, ensuring that everything has a designated place. Although it isn’t a new space, I have had to adapt my working techniques to suit the room at times. I have central tables dedicated to prepping trays and conducting practice experiments. Additionally, I have a bench designated for chemical preparation and washing up, and cleaning tasks. The administrative area, represented by my desk, is positioned to the side, out of the main working area. Trays line the walls on two sides, and there are shelves lining another.
The central tables that are specifically designated for preparing trays and carrying out practice experiments.
My racking is in desperate need of updating in the prep room and in the chemical store.
A fixed fume cupboard, a new Van de Graaf, a class set of light gates… the list could go on.
Get a list of everything you have and note the storage capacity of the prep room. This will give you a helping hand in sorting out where things can be stored and how. Oh and plenty of tea and patience for teachers!
