The Maths Lab on the campus engages student to experiment and explore pattern and ideas. It is a place where one can find a collection of games, puzzles, and other teaching and learning materials. The materials are meant to be used both by the students on their own and with their teacher to explore the world of mathematics, to discover, to learn and to develop an interest in mathematics. The activities in the Maths are appealing to a wide range of learners, of different ages and varying mathematical proficiency. The Maths lab provides an opportunity for the students to discover mathematics through doing. Many of the activities present a problem or a challenge, with the possibility of generating further challenges and problems. The activities help students visualize, manipulate and reason.
Computers are significant to education because they make us reconsider how students learn, how they are inspired, and what useful information is. Classroom with computers have become an important part of curriculum and need to be used daily. The Computer Lab at DPS Godhra is well resourced with latest educational software (with adequate security and safety features). Every student has access to a terminal in the lab. We are also keen to teach children about personal safety in the use of social media to ensure they are fully aware of the health and social risks involved. Parents can access the up-to-date progress of their children in each subject via school’s website.
Geography has attained the status of a Science subject recent times, hence a lab for better understanding of it. Geo lab accommodates a large variety of apparatus and gadgets which make the study more interesting . Added with other components of Social Science learning has become very interesting with the introduction of f Social Science Lab of the school.
Effective teaching and learning of science involves seeing, handling, and manipulating real objects and materials. The knowledge that kids attain in classrooms would be ineffectual unless they actually observe the process and understand the relationship between action and reaction. DPS Godhra combines classroom teaching with laboratory experiments to ensure that the students grasp each and every concept thoroughly.
They get a first hand learning experience by performing various experiments on their own. Students are made to use the models and understand different scientific theories and concepts. Anatomy models, physics science kits, and chemistry science kits make it easy to understand the otherwise complex theories of Science.
Children develop interest in scientific research in Science labs. When they observe various things and carry out different experiments, their reasoning skills are honed and they start thinking deeply on those theories and concepts. The School thus plays a vital role in bringing up the next generation with strong science aptitude.
ART AND CRAFT
Art is an important subject , not only on its own but in the rest of education as well. Experiencing and making works of art benefits students in their intellectual, personal and social development. Research studies point to strong relationships between learning in the arts and fundamental cognitive skills and capacities used to master other core subjects, including reading, writing, and mathematics. The importance of art education is for us to evaluate ourselves on how we connect with our surroundings. Art plays an important role in almost all aspect of education, from to unleash each child’s inherent talent guiding them through various techniques and helping children achieve their aspirations.
To develop a well-rounded personality the school offers the students an array of activities to choose from to suit their individual interest viz. Oil painting / Acrylic Painting on Canvas / Glass Painting / Tie & Dye
