It is imperative for schools to have the latest and high quality laboratories these days. Teaching and learning process becomes effective, when it involves seeing, handling, and manipulating real objects and materials. Children are able to retain the knowledge for longer when they experience and feel the experiments, research, and teaching in front of their eyes. When they observe various things and carry out different experiments and research, their reasoning skills are honed and they start thinking deeply on those theories and concepts. The knowledge that kids attain in classrooms would be ineffectual unless they actually observe and understand the concept. Our school combines classroom teaching with laboratory experiments to ensure that the students grasp each and every concept thoroughly.
“Schools thus play a vital role in bringing up the next generation of engineers and doctors”.
In this age of Computer Technology, an early exposure to the basics of computer, readies the child for the future and also helps them to overcome any inhibitions they might have towards computer usage. The School has separate computer laboratories for kids and older children, with one-on-one access, which means there is one computer for each child. It has an excellent infrastructure in terms of hardware and software which cater to the requirements of the students, teachers and the curriculum. The school’s computer lab has a dedicated broadband Internet connection for students to make them familiar with the Modern Digital Age. It has qualified and committed teachers to teach different classes at different levels i.e. Primary, Middle and Senior Secondary. The faculty members make continuous efforts to see that the students must get expertise in practical implementation of tools. In the higher classes the students have an option to learn advanced softwares which are the part of their curriculum.
Language is a medium of communication. Students from various cultures feel hard to learn English and its proficiency. The language lab is the solution and need of the hour to learn the English language. The quality of the language proficiency will be more when they learn it from the multimedia, digital and computerised Language Lab. Our Language lab has the capability to cater 45 students simultaneously. The study room is equipped with electronic sound-reproduction devices, enabling students to hear model pronunciations of foreign languages. The computer now fulfils all the needs of language education and gives life to language for our students.
Science is not just different than other subjects; the entire process of doing science is different. The means by which knowledge is acquired in science is unlike history or mathematics or poetry. The answers to scientific questions are not found in a textbook or through pondering high and lofty thoughts. Discoveries made in science are done so through the process of experimentation which is performed in a laboratory, more commonly called as Science Laboratory.
It is in the laboratory that, students learn to practice the activities of science - asking questions, performing procedures, collecting data, analyzing data, answering questions, and thinking of new questions to explore. Physics, which is the study of energy and matter, is no different. Knowledge that furthers the science of physics is gained through following the scientific method, which includes performing experiments to prove a hypothesis. Physics is primarily concerned with how motion, light, heat and force interact with energy and matter.
The school has a well furnished Physics Laboratory and is equipped with variety of apparatus used to conduct these kinds of experiments. There are numerous items which are used in school laboratories, such as heat lamps, lenses, magnets, inclined planes, balls, pendulums and any kind of item that a scientist needs to perform his experiment.
Science is a practical subject, teaching of which cannot be done only in theory form. Especially chemistry requires a well equipped and systematically arranged laboratory. Without a proper Chemistry lab, it is not possible to carry out the chemistry practicals and teaching process effectively in a school. Our school houses a lavish chemistry lab with various scientific instruments and chemicals. Here students learn to handle various apparatus and chemicals independently in a controlled, hygienic and safe manner under the supervision of teachers and Lab instructors.
The study of biology provides students with opportunities to develop an understanding of our living world. It is the study of life and its evolution, of organisms and their structures, functions, processes, and interactions with each other and with their environments. The school has a well-resourced, ventilated and spacious Biology Lab where the students work individually or in small groups on a question, problem or hypothesis. They use the processes and materials of science to construct their own explanation, by observing, collecting data and interpreting data of life processes, living organisms, and/or simulations of biological phenomena. The role of the laboratory plays a key factor in understanding biology.
Mathematics Laboratory is a place where students can learn and explore mathematical concepts and verify mathematical facts and theorems through a variety of hands-on activities using different materials. We have state-of-art mathematics laboratory which offers Multiple Teaching and Learning Aids as well as a complete theme based ambience to help visualize and feel mathematics. The Lab is rich in manipulative material, to which children have ready access to handle them, perform mathematical experiments, play mathematical games, solve mathematical puzzles and become involved in other activities. It provides an opportunity to students to understand, internalize, discover and verify the basic mathematical and geometrical concepts through concrete objects and situations. It is also a process and a procedure for teaching and learning mathematics. The laboratory also encourages the students to think, discuss amongst themselves as well as with the teacher, to assimilate concepts and rejoice mathematics rather than turning it into a phobia. This (lab) gives freedom to a child to use the mathematics model to explore, experiment and understand mathematical concepts through activities. They don't just learn but experience how a formula is derived by physically manipulating the learning material.
SOCIAL SCIENCE LAB:
Man is a social animal and to maintain relations between the people and the communities and their social customs, welfare, reforms social laboratory methodology is widely used in experimentation. In Kamla Nehru Hr. Sc. School, we have a spacious laboratory to make students understand social fabric and custom. Group of subjects concerned with Social Science are taught through models, charts and various modern techniques.
