Chemists At Work
Welcome to the virtual Public Service Laboratory. Join us for an on-line tour.
This tour steps you through an initial request for a water sampling kit, demonstrations of how the chemists test water samples, and a brief discussion of how the results are used. The final sequence is a portion of an actual tour conducted for area high school students.
