INAUGURATION OF AIS SCIENCE LAB

A comprehensive science lab was inaugurated by the Chairman Khan Mohammad Akhteruzzaman at Averroes International School to encourage scientific innovation among the students. The students will get a chance to work with tools and equipment to understand the concepts of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. These labs will have do-it-yourself kits and equipment on science, electronics, robotics, open source micro controller boards, sensors, and computers. AIS is providing classes every week for physics, chemistry, biology and general science. Addressing the gathering, Managing Director & CEO Anisur Rahman Shohag said that young minds will get a chance to work here and understand different aspects of science and technology. We will train our students for regional- and national-level competitions, exhibitions, workshops on problem solving, designing and fabrication of products and will provide practical classes at regular intervals. The Chairman, Secretary and Joint Secretary of Parents’ Council were the special guests of the inauguration ceremony. Students’ representative Fatima Bint Afzal has shown her gratitude to the initiatives of the management and delivered a speech on behalf of the students of AIS. Department Head of Chemistry, Professor Dr. Enamul Haque demonstrated some experiments along with the students of Grade VIII.

Significance

 AIS ensures effective teaching and learning of science by involving a perpetual state of show and tell.

 Science lab equipment allows students to interact directly with the data gathered. They get a first-hand learning experience by performing various experiments on their own.

 Students are made to use the models to understand different scientific theories and concepts.

 Anatomy Model, Physics science kits and chemistry science kits are used to make them understand the complex theories or concepts that are difficult to explain directly from the books

 Our learners observe various things and carry out different experiments, their reasoning skills are honed and they start thinking deeply on those theories and concepts. Schools thus play a vital role in bringing up the next generation of engineers, doctors and scientists.

 The science lab involves seeing, handling, and manipulating real objects and materials.

 Effective Learning of science by seeing, handling, and manipulating real objects and materials.

 

Laboratory management

 All the apparatus should be arranged subject wise in different shelves.

 The glass apparatus must be kept in separate shelf.

 The chemicals shall be arranged in alphabetic order.

 The apparatus kept in the shelf should be regularly inspected.

 Neatness, orderliness and cleanliness must be the motto of science teaching.

 The walls of laboratory must be upgraded with decoration when needed with science related topics

 No one should visit the lab without supervision of an expert or science teacher.

 Any breakage of apparatus should be noted down in the breakage register

 

Lab discipline

 No pupil should have a place assigned to enter the laboratory in the absence of teacher

 Every student should have a place assigned to him/her where he/she will perform his/her experiment

 Reagent bottle should be rearranged in the shelf immediately after the use

 Waste filter paper burned up matchsticks etc should not be thrown up into sinks

 Waste box should be kept in the lab

 Drawing figures on the furniture should never be permitted

 All unnecessary talks should be avoided and playing with the apparatus should be prohibited.

 The work should be finished 5 minutes before the end of period, the apparatus should be disconnected, washed if necessary and replaced in their proper place.

 A scientific atmosphere should be kept up

 Those who finish their work should go to the writing table finish their record work.

 The work done with discipline and care will be more effective and beneficial to students
