START HERE:
o Step 1: While this template has 50+ slides, remember:
o - You will NOT need them all.
o Step 2: Save a copy of this template prior to making edits.
You’ll be glad you did. Someday…
o Step 3: Delete any slides you do not need. So if your lab
does not use Nanotechnology, delete slides 50 to 52 now!
The goal was a template ANY lab could use. Check it out.
And delete what you don’t need!
