In Lab we create scientific atmosphere & creates an interest among the students in learning new experiments.  It is an place for carrying out demonstration and various scientific activities. Meaningful learning will occur where laboratory activities are a well-integrated part of a learning sequence.

Biology Lab

 

The Biology lab, Students are given opportunity to learn by performing practical’s. Students are tested their theoretical knowledge practically for its validity under the supervision of lab instructor and teacher. Before start practical, students were given the knowledge of compound microscope i.e. parts of microscope and their uses and how to handle the microscope. Students are made to observe the ways of handling the glassware’s and chemicals etc. To provide firsthand knowledge to the students about the subject the biology lab is fully equipped with all the required specimens, thus helping students to acquire necessary skill and confidence in an innovative environment.
