Welcome to your Online Science Lab Book. Instead of using a copybook, you will use this wiki to write your lab reports.

Don't forget, you will need your Science Copybook to transfer your notes and findings into your online lab report. If you forget your username and password, look at your Science Folder or your Student Planner.

Click on the links to learn how to make a proper lab report. Start with the Scientific Method and then the Lab Page Template page to get started. If you have any questions, log in and add a comment at the bottom of the page and we'll all try to help each other out.
