Conducting Polymer Lab


Educomp Project

The aim of this project is to replace the conventional chalk – and – talk method of teaching science with an activity oriented approach which will help students understand science concepts easily.  In this project we fabricate science activities which can be performed by the students themselves unless safety aspects demand the teacher to demonstrate that activity to the class.
