Laboratory activities have long and had a distinctive and central role in the science curriculum and science educators have suggested that many benefits accrue from engaging students in science laboratory activities.
Rapid developments in science, technology, and cognitive research have made the traditional definition of science laboratories—as rooms in which students use special equipment to carry out well-defined procedures—obsolete. The committee gathered information on a wide variety of approaches to laboratory education, arriving at the term “laboratory experiences” to describe teaching and learning that may take place in a laboratory room or in other settings:
Laboratory experiences provide opportunities for students to interact directly with the material world (or with data drawn from the material world), using the tools, data collection techniques, models, and theories of science.

  • Physical manipulation of the real-world substances or systems under investigation. This may include such activities as chemistry experiments, plant or animal dissections in biology, and investigation of rocks or minerals for identification in earth science.
  • Interaction with simulations. Physical models have been used throughout the history of science teaching . Today, students can work with computerized models, or simulations, representing aspects of natural phenomena that cannot be observed directly, because they are very large, very small, very slow, very fast, or very complex. Using simulations, students may model the interaction of molecules in chemistry or manipulate models of cells, animal or plant systems, wave motion, weather patterns, or geological formations.
  • Interaction with data drawn from the real world. Students may interact with real-world data that are obtained and represented in a variety of forms.
  • Remote access to scientific instruments and observations.

Every school boasts of spacious and separate laboratories!.

  • ● Physics Lab
  • ● Chemistry Lab
  • ● Biology Lab
  • ● Computer Lab

Necessity of laboratories in schools

School labs are a great place for students which help them enhance their learning by understanding the theoretical concepts of science which are taught in classrooms. Well-designed laboratories not only make science experiments fun but also help students in achieving good academic results.

Following Safety Rules

Science experiments are vital for kids. They are useful in understanding the theories and concepts of science that cannot be studied alone only by science textbooks. But science labs are risky so some safety rules must be followed to avoid accidents and injuries.

  • ● Kids will not be allowed to touch any chemicals or lab equipments.
  • ● Noexperiments will be done in the absence of the teachers
  • ● Students will read the label carefully before using any chemicals
  • ● They will will wear safety goggles, lab coat, and shoes in the lab
