At Aditi, students are constantly encouraged to test theories, prove concepts and validate hypotheses. There are five comprehensive laboratories, one each for Physics, Chemistry, Biology and two for Computer Science. The physics lab has a separate dark room which doubles as the school’s photography studio. Many meaningful group projects in the sciences are assigned to students with clear but open-ended guidance from the teachers. This gives students a chance to experiment together and so learn cooperatively, a skill that is irreplaceable in today’s world.
The laboratories are well designed, airy and well-lit. A lot of thought has gone into making the labs safe for student use, with wash areas at every table and acid-spill showers within easy reach. Electrical and gas supply channels are protected by screens, and have safety cut-off taps within easy reach of everyone in the lab.
