Things you can do to help around in the lab. 100% honesty: Since you guys are high schooler and not 18+ everything you guys do have to be under our supervision.

Practice to help yourself

Practice using the pipette aids and non filter pipettes. I fixed 6 of the pipette aids and they are located in the second drawer on the left of the desk in DNA lab. Each pipette aids may be different when it comes to the filler and dispensing button. Some may have the filler on the top and dispensing on the bottom, others might be vice versa. Understand your tools before using. Practice by transferring water from different flasks to the microcentrifuge to the geico bottles. The unfilter pipette tips for practice is located in second drawer on the right of the desk in DNA lab.
Review how to make a bacteria plasmid.
Understand what the machines we use in lab are for. We usually describe the function of each machine briefly when using them. Search online,read the textbook, or ask regarding how does the machine function, how to interpret the data, what can go wrong to screw up the experiment (hopefully not),etc. [ e.g How to interpret the data from a nanodrop? What's the difference between miniprep and maxiprep? How to count cells?]
