Reflection: Student Ownership Pipetting and Calibration - Section 6: Evaluate


I truly enjoying providing an opportunity for my students to earn certifications at the completion of online or hands-on lab training. Certificates are not only a great motivator for students but are a great way to gain individualized and specialized knowledge. The added educational value of a certificate for students is limitless and can give them the confidence and competitive edge they need to transition to college, advance their preparation for degree program as well as enables them to acquire marketable job skills while still in high school.

Pipetting and Calibration

Unit 5: Basic Tools of the Biotechnology Workplace
Lesson 11 of 12

Objective: Students will be able to perform a micro- and macropipette calibration using the gravimetric method in order to determine the accuracy and precision of our micropipettes.

Big Idea: Calibration of our pipettes in the biotechnology laboratory enables us to become aware of the difference between dispensed volume and the selected volume which may be a source of unknown error.
