Science is ever dynamic. There is no final theory in science and no unquestioned amongst scientists. Physics is the branch of science which is devoted to the study of nature and natural phenomenon. The purpose of performing physics experiments in the lab is not only to reinforce the material we learn in the physics lecture but also to enhance our understanding of how scientific knowledge actually progresses. As we perform the experiments, we encounter a messy reality quite unlike the tidy exercises of the text books.
It gives the taste of the difficulties and the thrills of real experimentation and we come out with a greater appreciation of how the laws of nature are teased out of "real world". Here NPSites are enjoying a well equipped lab with a state-of-art facility. Students can have a hands on experience with the equipments and are able to connect the abstract theories to the real life application using many devices like vernier caliper, screw gauge.
Biology Lab deals with the Science of living things - What they are, how they work, interact and change or evolve. The living organisms interact with one another, as well as with their physical and chemical environment. Biology, as a discipline of science, demands a scientific approach for analysis of its facts. It is, therefore, imperative that students of biology should have a clear idea about the basic nature of science.

Learning becomes more fun when theory is completed with practical experience. To ensure an all round practical knowledge, a well, equipped chemistry lab with all the necessary apparatus is an asset. Students have a firsthand experience on various experiments ranging from crystallization of salts, analysis of salts to volumetric analysis.
Practical learning enriches their knowledge and helps them to correlate to the theoretical knowledge. Practical experience helps them to derive unknown to known facts. The experience of observing various chemicals reactions which otherwise they learn in the form of equations gives a lot of pleasure and thrill to the students.
Igniting the bunsen burner, analysing the salts and observing the various reactions taking place gives a first hand information to the learners.
