Biology…meaning the science of all life!
Biology is an open-ended subject,the study of which is incomplete unless the theories taught in the class are put to test in the laboratory. Experiments and observations make learning more interesting and enriching. Biology laboratoryat APS NOIDA is spacious, well ventilated and is well equipped with preserved specimens, slides, models, chemicals, compound and simple microscopes and bio-visual charts which emphasize on developing students’ scientific temperament.Students enjoy conducting experiments as experiential learning enhances their subject knowledge manyfold.
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.
― Albert Einstein
In Physics courses, students must develop their own understanding of variousconcepts. This knowledge cannot simply be imparted by the teacher, but must be acquired by students throughexperiments, interactions with peers and teachers. Meaningful learning occurs where laboratory activities are a well-integrated part of the learning process.
The Physics Laboratory at APS, Noida is well equipped with the latest paraphernalia for providing hands on experience to the students in the field of optics, mechanics, electricity and electronics. It reinforces the knowledge gained by the students in the theory classes.The laboratory also helps them develop experimental and analytical skills through direct observation and activities.

The composite lab at Army Public School, NOIDA, seeks to involve children of the primaryschool inMathematics and Science – related practical work in an informal way.The idea of linking Mathematics and Science with materials of common use is the basic principle underlining the work done in the composite lab.
The Composite Lab is well equipped with furniture and apparatus related to the curriculum of the students. The lab is well equipped with spacious high tables along with high stools to provide a comfortable work space and can accommodate about 40 students at a time. The school encourages the students to learn through experiments, play-way method, hands-on activities and games.
Our endeavour is to provide opportunities for the children to work with their own hands and acquire confidence in handling tools and materials, while carrying out for themselves simple, improvised experiments.
The composite lab at APS NOIDA is an experiential learning space, which is based on Integrated and inter-disciplinary learning approach.
Without mathematics, there’s nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.

Maths Lab at Army Public School NOIDA aims to change the way Mathematics has been taught till now. The approach is towards student-centric explorative learning while making Mathematics learning hands-on. The Lab is based on the three pillars of ‘Imagination, Investigation and Interaction’, as it provides an opportunity to students to understand, internalize, discover and verify the basic mathematical and geometrical concepts through concrete objects, situations while using different materials.
The activities are carried out by the students under the able guidance of the teachers. The students explore, learn, and develop interest in mathematics
Mathematics lab also aids in technologically aided learning through online tools like Geogebra, Online Geoboard, Isometric Drawing tool, Polypad, Mathigonand more. It is the perfect place for the students for Experiential and Art Integrated Learning. The practical use of knowledge fortifies the theoretical concepts taught in class. For better understanding, they also make working models, which in turn enhances understanding of mathematical concepts develops their manual skills and increases their interest in the subject
