Even if the world of the professional laboratory never encroaches on your adult life, the School Laboratories and their surfeit of wooden stools and benches, chemicals, flames, bubbling liquids and glassware is always a memory that perseveres.

A Petri dish (or Petrie dish, Petri plate, cell-culture dish) is named after a German bacteriologist called Julius Richard Petri. A shallow cylindrical lidded dish (glass or plastic), biologists use the dishes to culture cells – for example, they are often used to make agar plates for microbiology studies.
