Caring for the Equipment:
The equipment in the technology laboratories is research grade, sophisticated and expensive. Students using the equipment need to acquire the proper skills to operate it effectively. Students must follow the guidelines of their instructors in learning how to use the equipment, demonstrate proper use of the equipment before using it independently, and use the equipment only under the supervision of an instructor. Never perform any operation unless you know exactly what you are doing. If you are not sure of what to do, ask your instructor. It will save damage to you, the equipment, and your pocketbook.
The technology labs provide the Governor's School students with the opportunity to explore sophisticated technologies, a privilege not available in regular high school programs. The laboratories represent a substantial monetary investment by the participating school divisions. All students need to care for the equipment in the laboratories to ensure that future students will have the same opportunities that you enjoy.
