Equipment for Indoor Geoscience Labs

A basic set of equipment and supplies

A good introductory geology lab needs some basic equipment so that students can work with a variety of materials. (Note that the materials such as rock and mineral samples, and maps of various kinds are covered in other pages in this module. The lists and explanations here are limited to more generally useful supplies). You can also find more information in the Starting Point Field Labs module; much basic equipment can serve double duty between indoor and field labs.
