The general chemistry laboratory is designed to support and illustrate chemical concepts studied in the lecture portion of the course, as well as to introduce important laboratory techniques and encourage analytical thinking. Both the labs are well-lit , well equipped and can accommodate 35-40 students. The children can conduct practical’s individually. The Class XII students also conduct investigatory projects apart from the usual testing and analysis. In the lab there are provisions to demonstrate a lot of experiments. Many charts and models are displayed and used as teaching aids.
The findings in our study show that students can learn both chemical concepts and laboratory skills by participating in laboratory exercises. Findings in our study show that for the laboratory exercise to be a learning experience, it is important to help students develop observation skills. All labs are managed by qualified lab assistants who help the students to perform experiments safely.
