Separate and well-equipped laboratories of science at Valley Public are experimental and innovative hubs for the students to do hands-on experiments, following the scientific method of testing the theories and hypotheses taught in class. Students have the opportunities to design scientific investigations, engage in reasoning, manipulate equipment, record data, analyze results, and discuss their findings. These skills and knowledge, fostered by laboratory investigations, are an important part of scientific inquiry-the process of asking questions and conducting experiments as a way to understand the world around them. Laboratory experiments at Valley Public help students learn to work independently and collaboratively, use scientific reasoning and appropriate laboratory techniques to define and solve problems, and draw and evaluate conclusions based on evidences. Labs here correlate closely with classroom instructions and are not a separate activity. And Valley Public has ensured that each student here avails that opportunity to participate in those investigations in a safe and convenient environment.
