Keeping in tune with modern times IHS ensures that practical knowledge is placed on an equal footing with theoretical knowledge for the all-round development of the students. For this purpose, the school has laboratories in numerous disciplines, which provide in-depth knowledge to its pupils. The School has laboratories that are equipped with the latest and most modern facilities. The student-friendly atmosphere in these laboratories helps to enrich the overall personality of the students through motivation and reinforcement. Each year, labs are renovated and new equipment added to the school infrastructure, all in a continuous drive to keep the School at the fore-front of new and emerging technologies in every single field.
Our Physics laboratory is equipped with modern equipments to help the students learn the concepts of Physics with experiments. It is designed to give practice of taking measurements, analyzing data and drawing inferences while the students experiment.
The lab is quite spacious and very well ventilated to ensure proper availability of light in it. Each of the laboratories can accommodate 32 students conducting experiments in groups of two depending on the experiment at hand.
The students spend most of their time at their lab tables performing their own experiments. The lab is very well equipped with instruments, like- meter bridges, battery eliminators, potentiometers, Hooke’s apparatus, etc. One can also observe the resonance condition that so often proves attractive and interactive. The pin-boards on each wall are decorated with very suitable charts, maps, illustrations and quotes and at the same time various models, made by the students, are exhibited all around the lab. The lab is accessible for the students of classes VII to XII.
The avant-garde Chemistry Laboratory provides a platform for students to nurture the budding scientist within them. The Lab is provided with the state- of- the art devices like- Fume hood, Distillation unit, Electronic weighing machine, Concealed gas line and the safety devices such as Firefighting equipment, First- Aid Kit etc. The acids and other reactive chemicals are stored in separate cupboards as a further precautionary measure. The students are provided with separate workstations with individual burners and plug points. The apparatus includes the commonplace strikers, mortar and pestle, clay triangles, watch glasses, crucibles, crucible tongs, chemical spoon, stirring rods, filter funnels and a variety of stoppers. The lab attendant maintains the record of the apparatus of the lab.
School has always paid premium to innovation and technology. Our school boasts of a highly equipped and well-stocked biology laboratory. The idea is to enable hands on learning by the students, “learning by doing” being the motto of our bio lab.
The laboratory provides the students with all sorts of facilities, ranging from specimens to innovative smart boards. The laboratory is quite spacious and is creatively decorated by the students. We have permanent anatomical slides of plants. The lab consists of simple and compound microscopes for the students to focus and study slides. The ratio of these microscopes per student is fairly high. We have measuring devices, like analytical balance. Also the laboratory has a variety of apparatus for physiological and ecological experiments. We have fire extinguishers in case of an emergency. The laboratory is well supplied with chemicals, and equipped abundantly with thermometers and other apparatus for students to carry out their experiments. Through experiments, students are able to gain firsthand knowledge and appreciate various concepts of biology.
