Science Practical: Now Simple and Enriching.


Like once Albert Einstein had said:

To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.

 Initially the prime focus of man was hunting and gathering, science helped man to secure the tomorrow and to make lives easier. There are two kinds of sciences: natural sciences and social sciences. The first one directly contributes, while the second one deals with human inhabitation. Not just that the theoretical knowledge is important but the very application of it is far more necessary to understand. Today, we have a separate field called science, where scientists of varied interest have done researches and a lot has been achieved. Technology too has a big role to play in this fast advancement. In schools, children are taught science in schools from  class 6 to 10. In the classes of 11 and 12 it is elective. The science course structure for classes 6 to 10 is formulated in such a way that it covers all major aspects of science, creating a solid foundation for the children. Doing a subject practically, enhances the clarity of the concepts, and enforce a better understanding of it. In schools, the schedule in made such a way that, the classroom studies and practical sessions can go hand in hand. In the labs, children are shown and demonstrated various experiments by their teacher. They are given a lab manual which systematically guides them through the entire process. What we do in the classroom laboratory is entirely different from that what the scientists do! This difference must be told to the children. Scientist work on a different platform, while children have to abide by rules and learn  experiments that are already “approved knowledge”. Science is a way of gaining knowledge and the understanding of chemical, natural, and physical world.

A good science lab manual helps children to observe, inquire, question, formulate and test hypotheses, analyze data, report and evaluate results in a better way. The “Science Lab Manual” by Virtuous Publications for class 6 to 10, lays emphasis on understanding and implementing these scientific skills. It provides a comprehensive background in science, with new fun-filled experiments and powerful visuals.

The curriculum relates directly to their need and interest and are encouraged to be curious. Each chapter is divided into fairly short sections, using figures, tables, photograph, flow diagrams and graphics.

The manual is developed systematically and represents an extensive review and update of the material produced. The text content are highly interactive ensuring a degree of independent self study.

This book has been developed, critiqued, and revised by experts in the subject. Some expected outcomes of the book are as follows:

  • Use science process and thinking skills
  • Manifest science interests and attitudes
  • Understand important science concepts and principles
  • Communicate effectively using science language and reasoning
  • Demonstrate awareness of the social and historical aspects of science
  • Understand the nature of science

The Activity Manual provides skills in a context that enables students to experience the joy of doing science.
