Science Resource Centre

Science is that human endeavor that seeks to describe with even increasing accuracy, the events and circumstances which occur or exist within our natural environment. -Albert Einstein

Objectives of Science Resource Centre
1. To enhance the understanding of scientific theories.
2. To develop scientific reasoning.
3. To familiarize students with experimental apparatus and the scientific methods.
4. To teach students to work as a team and learn how to effectively collaborate.
5. To develop a better understanding of the nature of science.
6. Gain hands on experience and develop practical skills and knowledge.
7. Understand the importance of empirical work to support and explain scientific theories.
8. To teach how to make careful experimental observations and how to collect accurate and precise data.
9. Cultivate an interest in science by engaging students in scientific process. This motivates them to enjoy and seek out learning science.

All of us are aware that practical classes are an essential part of the learning process. Science lab is a place where students get hands on experience by performing various experiments. A well-equipped laboratory can help learners to develop critical thinking and problem-solving ability. It also enhances broad understanding of scientific concepts.

Institute of Vocational Studies’ Science lab is fully equipped with models and biology specimens, slides, different types of microscopes, beakers, test tubes, funnels, lab burners, conical flasks, burettes and pipettes, rubber corks, measuring cylinders, wire gauge, spirit lamp, petri dish, charts, lab stands, needle, forceps, magnifying glass, various chemicals & reagents, PH papers, gas jars, Daniel cell, spatula, magnetic compass, mirror holder, spring balances and bar magnets. Having all these equipments enable our students to teach at secondary and senior secondary levels. So, students are encouraged to take the advantage of the lab and try to get first- hand experience under the guidance of experienced science educators.

Psychology Resource Centre

"Educational psychology describes and explains the learning experiences of an individual from birth through old age. This way, educational psychology is the psychology of learning, towards which the educational psychologists have contributed by makng intensive studies of the facror and conditions determinant of learning." -Crow and Crow

A teacher must know about child psychology and educational psychology, so that the teacher will be able to understand the needs of the learners. Psychological theories help a pupil teacher to deal with learners in a smooth way so they can handle various situations and create good learning environment.

Objectives of the Psychology Resource Centre

The objectives of the Psychology Resource Centre are to develop the skills for administering and interpreting various tests. It also acquaints the prospective teachers with various tools for measuring different dimensions of performance like achievement, intelligence, attitude, aptitude, interest, motivation, and personality.
Psychology lab is equipped with psychological texts (verbal and nonverbal performance test) personality inventory, projective techniques, memory drum test, maize learning experiment, social intelligence scale, and emotional intelligence scale. We also have psychological instruments, learning and memory equipments. The main purpose for establishing psychology lab is to create an environment where all students can perform some research and several types of psychological tests. These labs help the pupil teacher to understand and conduct such experiments.
