Goggles

A pair of safety goggles is needed for each student. 

The American National Standards Institute designates the standards for safety use only goggles that are stamped “Z87.1” are approved for classroom use. 

Impact glasses are not ideal for use as they do not prevent eye injury in case of chemical splashes. Safety goggles, which provide protection all around the eye, are a much better alternative.
