Sun Valley International School
Sun Valley International School
Science has invaded in every branch of modern life. The food we eat, The clothes we wear the books and papers we read, the recreations we enjoy, the games we play– all have something or other to do with science. Thus the students in SVIS are provided with the latest technology and equipments to help them learn Science in most interesting and dynamic way. The school houses a fully functional Physics Lab, Chemistry lab, Bio Lab with all the required equipments apparatuses and specimens for holistic learning to take place. Subject specialists and lab assistants help to create an effective learning environment, ensuring the safety of the students at the same time.
Based on motto "Practical Knowledge is everlasting," we at Sun Valley follow the same i.e. learning by doing.
Our labs are well equipped with various apparatuses and working models. Children visualize through working models, the concept being taught to them in theory. The practicals are conducted right from basic level ( VI std) to higher level (XII std) so that children know proper handling of apparatus and can maintain the record of each experiment done in their Lab Manuals. We have separate labs for Physics, Chemistry and Biology where students are exposed to the facts that lie behind the theory, they read in their respective science classes.
All latest instruments related to electricity, sound, light and many more enable the students to get the concept of Physics. We have sufficient number of Lenses, Mirrors, Magnets, Official benches, Sonometer, Potentiometer, Meter bridge etc. in our Lab. In general, student to apparatus ratio is 2 : 1.
Chemistry Lab is well equipped with all precautionary measures against any eventuality. Advanced network of gas connectivity is given for safe handling of the experiments.
Each seat is provided with Raegent shelves, Sinks and Water taps, sufficient storage space catered for in a well ventilated room. Special provision exists for weighing balances required for many experiments by students
Our Biology Lab is well equipped with number of specimens, advanced microscopes like compound and dissecting which enable students to understand basic anatomy of life forms.
After visualizing specimen, students correlate existence of biodiversity. We also have Haemometer and Haemocytometer by which students measure % of Hb ( Haemoglobin) in their blood and can count no. of RBC by preparing slides. Presence of human skeleton enables even small children to understand the concept of body movements. Theory of evolution is best understood by knowing anatomy of various specimens from lowermost plant algae to highly evolved angiosperms. Our teachers use all these equipments mentioned above in their class rooms for explaining theoretical portions, whereas in Labs, main emphasis is given on self performance rather than demonstration by teachers.
School has a well equipped Social Science lab full of various 3D models, charts, maps and audio visual teaching aids which are used by teachers to enable the students to understand the geographical concepts in an interactive way. The lab also gives the students an opportunity to work independently on various projects assigned to them by teachers from time to time.
The students are encouraged to make working models and by doing so they have a clearer perception of the different geographical features of the earth.
Maths lab is a place where learning becomes fun. Students from classes VI to X have well planned activities here. To facilitate and engage the students in a variety of hands on learning experiences, the students & teachers have put together models in the laboratory. A number of experiments with colourful paper cutout & paper folding activities are on display which help to clarify concepts of lines, angles, triangles, quadrilateral & circles etc. for classes VI to X.
The Maths lab comprises of a variety of mathematical teaching aids in the form of models, games, charts, CDs etc. useful for effective learning for classes I to V. Reinforcement of concepts is also done by IT-based interactive teaching which is available in addition to our Audio Visual Room.
