    Always in Chemistry (there's a few pretty mad reactions demonstrated). In Biology only while doing microbiology. Never in Physics.

    If there is a radioactive experiment ever to take place, I'm sure we'll need more than lab coats :yep:

    Chemistry, yes, we had to wear labcoats and goggles.
    Biology we don't usually wear anything, and if we do just a plastic apron. Then again we aren't usually playing with nasty chemicals in biology :p:
