There are also a great number of advancements taking place all the time in the field of computers and artificial intelligence. To keep our students up-to-date with these technological advancements and to boost their analytical skills, our school has two fully-equipped, state-of-the-art computer laboratories. Students here at KIPS, are prepared to creatively master various advanced computer skills such as programming, web designing, app development etc. All the computers in our labs are well equipped with updated systems and advanced softwares making our school one of the best in Himachal. With the use of advanced technology, our students develop critical thinking and analytical skills. This not only improves their practical skills, but also harnesses all other essential skill-sets affecting other fields of study. Computer labs, with experienced and trained teachers provide multiple learning opportunities to students and also provide a platform for the students to explore the arena of computers and artificial intelligence. Along with well-equipped computer labs, our school has Mathematics lab, Science lab and Language lab as well. KIPS is having computer laboratories featuring over 30 computer systems. The computers in the CBSE lab have been upgraded with appropriate software to enable students of classes XI and XII to compile and run programs in Java with net beans, Anaconda Navigator for Python and C++ along with Flash-8 applications as per the syllabus. The Senior, Junior and Sub-Junior Computer Labs, on the other hand,enable students to learnVB.net, Corel Draw, Java, Adobe Flash, Kid pix, Logo, Paintbrush, MS-Office, etc.
Mathematics as a subject is very important for learners. It helps in developing their scientific and analytical skills. Maths Laboratory enhances the quality of conceptualization and retention that the students are able to achieve. It makes the subject more engaging, ensuring that our learners take keen interest in all aspects of acquisition, application and development of concepts. A Mathematics or Maths lab is a designated space to teach and discuss Maths in an engaging and interactive way. It is activity-centered. This makes our school one of the top schools in Rohini. A Mathematics lab helps the students to understand basic concepts of mathematics through concrete objects and situations. It uses fun ideas such as crafts, models, and origami, etc. to understand geometric theories and properties. Most importantly, learning Mathematics through the help of a Mathematics lab develops interest and curiosity in the learners for the subject. Not only Mathematics, but all the subjects can be made interesting and engaging with the help of laboratories. It holds true for languages as well. Our school also has a Language lab to develop primary linguistic skills such as listening and speaking.
Today, education is no longer a system of cramming and filling students minds with information but rather it is a process of self discovery. So to encourage the students to learn on their own and to inculcate the habit of avid and voracious reading, among students Kasauli International Public school library stocks around 10625 books on diverse topics and subjects which are accessible to the students. It is providing story books,competitive books, daily news papers, reference books and educational CDS which cover all the subjects and are timely upgraded. The library is quite spacious, airy with the capacity of 60 students to be seated. In addition to this, the well-equipped library also stocks computers and internet connection. Students can access the internet connection if required.
Our state-of-the-art Physics laboratory is equipped with modern equipments to help the students learn the concepts of Physics with experiments. It is designed to give practice of taking measurements, analyzing data and drawing inferences while the students experiment. The lab is very well equipped with instruments, like- meter bridges, battery eliminators, potentiometers, Hooke’s apparatus, etc. One can also observe the resonance condition that so often proves attractive and interactive. The pin-boards on each wall are decorated with very suitable charts, maps, illustrations and quotes and at the same time various models, made by the students, are exhibited all around the lab. One just cannot resist loving both the lab and the subject as the aura of Physics seems to besiege the invader.
The laboratory provides the students with all sorts of facilities, ranging from specimens to innovative smart boards. The laboratory is quite spacious and is creatively decorated by the students. We have permanent anatomical slides of plants. The lab consists of simple and compound microscopes for the students to focus and study slides. The ratio of these microscopes per student is fairly high. We have measuring devices, like analytical balance. Also the laboratory has a variety of apparatus for physiological and ecological experiments, like water bath, oven and Digital PH Meter. We have fire extinguishers in case of an emergency. The laboratory is well supplied with chemicals, and equipped abundantly with thermometers and other apparatus for students to carry out their experiments. Through experiments, students are able to gain firsthand knowledge and appreciate various concepts of biology.
Our chemistry lab is well equipped with chemicals and other apparatus to cater to the needs of all the students up to class 15.They show great enthusiasm in using chemicals and perform hands on experiments. An additional advantage of our lab is an Extramarks smart board with real and animated versions of different experiments. It is also supported by a virtual lab which is used to conduct experiments on the board and observe the reactions. The virtual lab also provides animations of chemical reactions at the molecular level. The lab has an excellent safety system with fire extinguishers and a shower cum eye washer equipment. The lab inculcates curiosity and inquisitiveness in students. It plays a very important role in developing a scientific temperament in our students.
All basic musical equipments are made available to the students. Instruments like the harmonium, tabla, sitar, sarod, congo, drums, piano, keyboard and others are accessible for the students. The music department is equipped with teaching students both vocal and instrumental Indian classical music. Interested students can learn contemporary dances and songs as well as classical dances. The music room is sound proof and there is a separate resonance resistance practice room adjacent to the main room. For the dissemination of theoretical knowledge, the music room is equipped with smart-boards, latest PCs and upgraded software.
