Workstations and safety supplies are of the utmost importance when outfitting your school's science labs, but do you have the necessary storage for the unique materials this type of classroom includes? Take a look at our science lab storage checklist to make sure!

Concealed storage is typically lockable to keep the contents of the unit out of reach of students without teacher permissions. Contents of concealed storage may very but typically includes adjustable shelving and/or tray storage ideal for housing science lab tools.

Open storage is similar, but has no door, so be sure to only use this type of storage for items that are safe for students and do not have a high likelihood of being stolen.

Storage carts can be open or concealed and are mobile via rolling casters which may or may not be lockable.

Microscope storage keeps your classroom microscopes protected behind lockable doors. So what makes these cabinets any different from standard concealed storage? Most microscope cabinets come with built-in charging capabilities so that your microscopes are always ready for use before each class begins.

Specimen storage cabinets include large, shallow drawers that can be used to house specimens such as rocks, paper and insects.

Skeleton storage cabinets are designed to hold a classroom skeleton and its stand, allowing you to move the skeleton around the classroom as needed while keeping the unit protected. This type of cabinet typically includes a lockable door.
