Science educators have believed that the laboratory is an important means of instruction in science since late in the 19th century. Laboratory activities were used in secondary school chemistry in the 1880s. Laboratory instruction was considered essential because it provided training in observation, supplied detailed information, and aroused pupils’ interest. These same reasons are still accepted almost 100 years later.
Laboratory teaching assumes that first-hand experience in observation and manipulation of the materials of science is superior to other methods of developing understanding and appreciation. Laboratory training is also frequently used to develop skills necessary for more advanced study or research.
At Maygrace we are constantly improving our state-of-the-art Laboratory to meet up international standards and also engage our pupils in various experiment exercises.
