About the Department

“Science is a beautiful gift to humanity; we should not distort it.”
-Dr A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

The Physical Science department is passionate about opening the minds of students to the discoveries, exploration and dramatic potential of the world of science. It aims to develop abilities to process information and take independent decision in simple situations in day to day life with a mind of developing scientific temper. Our department has a conducive environment which provides basic education in teaching, learning and evaluation in theory and practice at various levels appropriate for students to prepare to become professionals in their selected teaching fields. We acclimate diverse teaching – learning strategies such as project, seminar, group discussion etc., appropriate for the students preparing them to teach science in the secondary schools.

Science laboratory plays a major role in developing such skilled science teachers. Our department has a well-equipped laboratory which helps in the development of objective reasoning and thinking, skills of experimentation, observation, construction and improvising scientific apparatus, problem solving and scientific attitude among the students.

Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced. With this aim, we organized one day workshop on the preparation of instructional materials to develop qualities like independence, self-confidence, persistence, novelty, originality and curiosity. We are maintaining an active science club which is a better forum for the students to realize their scientific aspiration, to express their ideas freely, to translate their thoughts into action, to develop a keen taste and interest for scientific investigations, to provide opportunity for detecting and cultivating scientific talents, to understand abstract scientific concepts and principles, to develop scientific skills, to increase awareness of the relevance of science in modern society and to facilitate student success in the discipline of science and related disciplines where an understanding of science is essential.

The activities undertaken are lectures of the distinguished speakers, subject experts and outside guests, group discussions and seminars, holding science fairs and exhibitions, celebrating National Science Day, organizing workshop, decorating the walls of the classrooms and laboratory with scientific images and charts, Improvising and preparing handmade apparatus, charts and models, planting trees and donating books to the library. Thus our department makes an energetic effort to extend science education within a span of limited time.
