“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
– Benjamin Franklin
It is imperative for schools to have updated and high quality labs for effective teaching and learning. Science lab equipment allows students to interact directly with the data gathered and tinker with what is learnt. They get a first-hand learning experience by performing various experiments on their own and can understand complex scientific theories and concepts through models. Science lab experiments hence aid in developing scientific learning among students and cultivating a deeper and profound interest in the field.
A Lens to the Practical Application
The school ensures that its well –designed physics lab has sufficient number of apparatus which can be used individually by students. A systematic, innovative approach is adopted comprising the use of smart-boards, demonstration by teachers, O-labs, explanation and finally the practical performed by the students. Special care is taken to explain the concepts through demonstration. Demonstration models such as Transparent Resistance box, Digital Vernier Calliper, Digital Screw gauge aid in clarity of concepts. The lab has ample tools and resources to facilitate the process of drilling, cutting, soldering to enable the students to prepare their models for the Board Practical Exam as well as for diverse, prestigious National Level Competitions. The students are mentored by a team of qualified and efficient teachers:
- Mr. Vikas Singh
- Mr. Santosh Kumar Singh
A DNA to the Natural World
The school provides a well-resourced biology lab to facilitate effective learning through experiments and practical work. Numerous models such as that of human skeletal system, forelimbs, knee joints, POP model of fishes etc. promote understanding and retention among students. Live specimens of plants like pinecone, aquatic plants and plants parasites aid in awakening the students’ curiosity and interest. Practical activities like DNA extraction from vegetables or fruits, preparation of pollen germination slides etc. are smoothly carried out following the lucid explanation and demonstration by teacher. The students investigate and explore under the optimum guidance of the following teachers:
- Ms. Kirti Tripathi
- Ms. Shabina Choudhary
A Solution to the Complex Theories
The well-furnished chemistry lab has all the necessary equipments for preparation of samples and standards as prescribed by CBSE, thereby creating a positive learning environment for the students. Through explanation and demonstration by teachers, the young learners are mentored and guided to apply their theoretical knowledge to perform experiments and employ their analytical skills. Safety considerations being a priority, adequate precautionary measures have been adopted. The lab has concealed gas line, fire extinguishers and all the acids and reactive chemicals are appropriately stored and locked. The students are motivated to interact with the chemical world and acquire scientific temper with the assistance of the following members of the faculty:
- Mr. Deepak Sharma
- 2.Ms.Seema Dixit
ATL (Atal Tinkering Lab)
“Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.”
An initiative of Niti Aayog, these are modern technology lab equipped with basic and advanced electronic devices which help students to shape their ideas.We are proud receiver of the lab where students develop their ideas and learn advance technology and techniques to become innovators of tomorrow. It is a workspace that enables young minds to shape their ideas through hands-on –do-it –yourself mode. Students are offered with opportunities to work with tools and equipment to understand the concepts of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). To stimulate inventiveness among students, ATL conducts different activities comprising Regional and National Level Competitions, exhibitions, workshops on problem-solving, designing and fabrication of products, lecture series etc.
Psychology Lab –
“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.”
Psychology Lab promotes experimentation and testing without which the study of Psychology is incomplete. The activities are designed to enhance the student’s understanding of the subject and its applications. The lab is well equipped with different test materials and psychological apparatus. Students are trained and guided to conduct experiments and administer psychological tests such as Intelligence Test, Personality Test, Anxiety Test, Adjustment and Attitude Test etc. They are encouraged to engage in research, case study, group discussion, seminar and learn through participative learning.
Theorems at Work!
“Without mathematics, there’s nothing you can do.Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.”
The School’s Maths lab is a befitting space for students to learn and explore mathematical concepts and verify mathematical facts and theorems using variety of activities. It is well equipped with necessary kits and tools. It provides an opportunity to the students to understand and internalize the basic mathematical concepts through concrete objects and situations. It promotes individual participation in the process of learning and enables students to become autonomous learners.
“Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where hey are going.”
The school’s well-furnished language lab transforms a passive language class into a result oriented, conducive learning environment wherein the students are guided and mentored in the application of resources. Innovative activities are made possible through the use of education technology ensuring effective learning. Use of Google Arts and Culture for virtual museum trips for a better understanding of the chapters with historical background, arrangement of flip classes, teaching of literary devices through music are some of such creative activities. Undoubtedly, the lab offers a stimulating environment for the learners to train and prepare themselves for diverse competitions and also execute research based projects as part of ASL program .
Social Science Lab
“Social Science is itself part of the social experience it seeks to interpret and explain.”
The modified and well -designed social science lab serves as an appropriate site for organizing a plethora of enriching activities comprising Art- Integration Classes, Map Activities, screening of movies and documentaries as well as Curriculum Support Package Activities. Students are provided with a rejuvenating ambience wherein they are offered the opportunity of interacting with the guest lecturer and learning by participating in various innovative activities. The lab effectively serves to infuse interest and enhance learning among the student
The school boasts of a well-furnished Commerce lab wherein students are provided the opportunity to put the theoretical knowledge gained in the classroom into practice. Charts on various trends in business and economy ensures the students are well-informed about the business scenario; the availability of commerce dictionary enables them to comprehend the business terms ; mock commerce and business activities undertaken in the lab develops their entrepreneurial capabilities and enables them to understand the practical difficulties of running a business.
