COVID-19 safety measures prevented medical science students from undertaking a range of standard physiological labs. Students requested that other ways be found to provide them more practical skills/analytical experience, even when working remotely. Given the press regarding handwashing and its effectiveness against COVID-19, we developed a soapmaking practical, streamed live from the lecturer’s kitchen that allowed us to address student needs, developing a compressed version they could undertake during their limited classroom laboratory time if they were on campus. We used this practical as a platform for numeracy, analytical skills, health and safety, COVID-related physiology, toxicology and careers discussion.
