Each student is motivated & guided to sharpen his/her reading skills acumen during the library period. New arrivals & informative articles are displayed on the library bulletin board. Separate Reading Room is provided for senior students & staff which also serves as a Resource Centre. The library collection is physically verified every year during the summer break & record of the same is properly maintained.

Smart Class Rooms

A computer is a crucial component of the academic success of a student. It offers a unique platform to gain the up-to-date information and to analyse the use of that information for school projects. Additionally, computers help students grow accustomed to writing professional material like presentations, documentation which is greatly encouraged in the school.

Computers in the classroom include digital technology used to enhance, supplement, or replace a traditional educational curriculum.

Computers installed have become popular tool for teachers, since they are able to present an important interactive component and allow students a diverse and exciting way of integrating information into their lessons. Some recent technologies that have been included like the digital whiteboard and educational video games both of which are used extensively in school.

Biotechnology Laboratory

Science cannot be imagined without laboratory and experiments, laboratory is that place where students extend their theoretical knowledge with the help of experiments and get command over the subject. Biotechnology laboratory is one of such hi-tech labs where students are provided hands on practice on latest gadgets and equipments. Biotechnology is an integrated science, a combination of allied sciences and therefore used to have allied effects, it is used to prepare therapeutically and diagnostically important proteins, to manipulate the gene and their expression to improve quality and quantity of the plant and animal products. In this era of biotechnology, students are required to learn the uses of biology, biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, microbes etc. with the application of instruments i.e. technical system to the benefit of mankind.

For boosting the knowledge and confidence of the students in this upcoming area, we have biology and biotechnology laboratory which covers an area around 22 ft x 10 ft for biotechnology lab and for biology lab is 45 ft x 22 ft.

Maths Laboratory

Maths laboratory project in Bhatnagar International School is not a new concept. The active department of mathematics always provided an environment to supplement classroom teaching by innovative teaching methods.

Revolutionary step in teaching- learning Mathematics through COMPUTERS was taken up decade back. Formally the laboratory project was set up in 2002. Since then, Maths Lab has become mainstream of the curriculum.

Presently the Maths Lab is compulsory part of Maths Teaching —Learning Process. The school plans the annual schedule for the Lab Activities for classes 2 to 11th. The annual schedule is given to the students in the beginning of the academic session. All activities are thoughtfully planned by the teachers to reduce the abstractness of the subject and to relate mathematics to real life.

WEEKLY SCHEDULE AND FUNCTION OF THE LAB:-

A Maths lab period is allotted to every class in weekly planner of the class.

Pre planned experiment and activity is performed under the guidance of the teacher.

Students are provided reference material and information about the activity.

Then, activity is conducted followed by observations, discussion and application to real life. Students are encouraged to make working / static models wherever possible. Their work is displayed on the bulletin board as exhibits.

Internet provides new dimensions to learning mathematics.

Regularly visited sites and software by students and teachers:

Conversion tools---metric tool, 1cm and hcf tool, percent-decimal conversion number system etc. Brain pop, mathematica, sketch pad graphic calculator animation films on trigonometric functions etc.

Reference material for teachers provide new possibilities of teaching.

Multimedia teaching itself generates keen interest in students. C.Ds. are shown on projector in multimedia room of the school on regular basis.
