Laboratory teaching assumes that first-hand experience in observation. The manipulation of the
materials of science is superior to other methods of developing understanding and appreciation. The knowledge attained in classrooms would be ineffective unless actual observation and understanding is gained by the students. The gift of science has added greatly to the dignity and sublimity of human civilization and science is often acclaimed as an angel of creative ideas. Experiments at the science lab helps students develop a scientific temper. We believe in inculcating following objectives by giving each child hands on experience.
- Skills – manipulative, inquiry, investigative, organizational, communicative
- Cognitive abilities like critical thinking, problem solving, application, analysis and synthesis
- Understanding the nature of science through scientific enterprise, scientists and their methodology, existence of a multiplicity of scientific methods, interrelationships between science and technology.
- Attitudes such as curiosity, interest, risk taking, objectivity, precision, confidence, perseverance, satisfaction, responsibility, consensus, collaboration
