CSB Video on School Chemistry Lab Safety

CSB has released "After the Rainbow," a video telling the story of Calais Weber, who at age 15 was burned on over 40% of her body while viewing a chemistry demonstration performed by a teacher. The video discusses procedures that may have prevented the incident and what schools can do to keep students safe during chemistry experiments.

The video is a follow up to "Experimenting with Danger," which documents laboratory incidents in three major universities.
