Wendy House School has all the laboratories-physics, chemistry, biology and maths furnished with all modern tools and apparatus to give students the accurate understanding of all the science subjects.
Laboratory experiments play an important role in Science education. Science laboratories play central and distinctive role in Wendy House School. In addition to conducting curriculum related experiments, students also work on special projects by using the laboratory.
Our physics laboratory caters the requirements of all the classes to understand the application of laws of physics. Students of Secondary level make maximum use of physics laboratory followed by the students of basic level.
The Chemistry laboratory at Wendy House holds enviable position in the school. It is a large room fixed with all the essential tubes, beakers, bowls etc. Exhaust fans in this laboratory ensures that the different kind of gases released in the experiments do not affect the students working inside and make their way outside the laboratory.
The laboratory has the sufficient number of large tables attached with the Bunsen burners and the shelves containing the necessary reagents. There are sinks placed at different places easily accessible to all students. The sufficient space on the table accommodates good number of students at a time in the laboratory.
The laboratory has a small enclosure where chemicals are stored and many cupboards all over safely keep (or store) the apparatus used by the students.
The gas cylinder connected to the laboratory’s Bunsen burner is kept outside the room as a precaution in order to avoid sudden accidents. A fire extinguisher is always kept on the school premises to strengthen further the safety measures.
An attendant present in the laboratory helps the students in gathering their apparatus for conducting the experiments.
Biology laboratory is well stocked with bottled specimens ranging from tapeworms to models of various organ systems, laminated charts and other visual aids to enable students to understand biological concepts more clearly. Specimens of butterflies, nests, bird’s eggs and an aquarium add to the beauty of the laboratory, while the human skeleton helps students understand the structure and position of different bones in the body.
“Under the guidance of the school’s Biology teachers students are encouraged to observe the microcosm through slide preparations”. The laboratory is also equipped with permanent slides of a variety of organisms, tissues and cell processes which help students appreciate the structural and functional complexities of life in both plant and animal cells.
