In the Fall 2012, twenty General Chemistry Honors students at UNH were issued the new iPad 3 to incorporate these devices both in the classroom and the laboratory. This discussion will focus on the integration of the iPad into the laboratory curriculum while creating a paperless experience, an environment where no paper would enter or be used for the laboratory over the course of the year.  After a transition period for the students and instructor, the overall experience has been a positive one and can easily be implemented into any teaching laboratory.
