Another important objective of science teaching is to develop skills among the students.  Developing the scientific attitude among its learner is one of the main objectives of the science teaching department.

Laboratory plays an important role in effective & efficient Science teaching. A major part of the time spent in learning science has to be used for Practical work either in the class-room or as demonstration in the Laboratory individually or in groups.
