Former Science Paraprofessional at Oakland Community College
over 2 years ago
I worked ran the biology/microbiology lab classes. Preparing media, washing and sterilizing glassware, preparing cultures, setting up the biology lab for the week. Making sure everything you need is ordered. You may have to take over for a professor to teach the lab if need be, so you have to know what you're doing beyond just prepping the lab. Meeting with the professors each week to discuss the week's labs. Usually it is one lab set up for the week for all of the microbiology and biology classes.
