    There were many things wrong during the science experiment. The student rushed into the lab, and even though it wasn’t considered horseplay, it was very dangerous. She could have bumped into or knocked something over. When her instructor handed her a pair of goggles, the student refused to slide them over her eyes, so instead she wore them on her forehead during the experiment. The student also wore her lab coat incorrectly, tying it around her waist instead of wearing it normally. She was wearing jewelry and other things around her wrists, and wore a loose scarf dangling around her neck and didn’t consider removing them. She did not tie her hair up to prevent it brushing in her face and hanging down, she had open-toe shoes and shorts, also. While looking through the sheets of paper, she crumbled up one of them and threw it on the floor, and it could have maybe been important. She also forgot to label the ingredients! Since of that, she decided to taste one of them. When she announced that she was hungry, she just placed her purse up on the counter and started bringing out food and a drink, and no food was aloud into the science lab, and its not aloud at any of the rest at anytime. She even poured her coke into the beaker, which could have been used before. She could have been poisoned or worse, even though it was probably cleaned multiple times. She started to place the ingredients on places that they were not supposed to go. When she had poured too much of one thing, she just poured it back into the same container, and that is not good. Even if it wasn’t messed with, the air could have changed it. Worried of her appearance, the student started to spray her hair with hairspray and put lipstick on. She created an open flame on a candle and moved it close to her face. She just placed the beaker with the ingredients above the flame. When the black stuff appeared under the beaker, the student grabbed the bottle of Dawn and washed it off with that. She didn’t even let the instructor grab something to clean the bottom off. The soap could have maybe caused some chemical reaction. She also smelled the substance, but put it close to her nose and sniffed, instead of wafting like she should have. Her nose started to burn, probably. When the substance lifted up and flowed out of the beaker while the student was holding it, it got on the skin on her hands because she forgot to wear gloves. When the instructor was telling her that she get something to clean it off, the student said it was fine and acted like it was no big deal. Overall, the work space was just messy, and it was a horrible idea for the student to not listen to the instructor. Even the instructor was doing something wrong: not rolling up her sleeves, which she probably had to do also. There was probably so much more safety hazards that I missed. There were signs all about lab safety, but the student was just not caring.

    Oh! Also i meant to add that the student needed to watch her handwriting. When she wrote an O, it kind of looked like a D. On little mistake could make a big difference!!
