The purpose of writing a lab report is that I need to be able to write an organized, detailed and understandable review of what I have experienced while going doing the procedure section of the lab. It also helps me organize my time by thinking about what part of the lab I do on each day. I also learn a lot of new things that I may not have known before. Actually writing the lab helps me better understand what I have learned, and explain it to someone that may have no education on the topic of the lab, because in my opinion teaching something is far more difficult then learning something. It also will prepare me for high school, because by then I should have almost mastered the basics of each and every topic my lab was on.
