CBSE Practicals from home; Check Details
CBSE 9th and 10th grade students were prescribed alternatives to experiment with resources available from home as there are no conditions in the labs to carry out the experimental process as intended. CBSE has recently announced the modalities in this regard.
The students can complete their practical work and project work from home under their teachers' guidance instead of conducting lab experiments with teacher interview instructions. In September last year, CBSE made the curriculum and experimental processes virtually available to students in grades 9 - 12 through the online platform, as lab experiments could not be conducted due to lockdown. Recently, the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) announced the launch of a number of other activities from the manual.

The CBSE has curated a set of alternate experiments using simple, readily available household materials that learners can use to do these activities at their homes. The hands-on activities have been designed to have similar learning outcomes for all the lab experiments required to be done in 21-22 for class 9 and 10. CBSE has instructed the respective schools to follow with the students the procedures devised by NCERT to enable the students to carry out these experiments with the resources available at home. This content is also available through the Initiation Portal. Teachers were instructed to instruct the students to experiment at home in a safe manner so as not to embarrass the students. CBSE emphasizes the importance of teaching in imparting knowledge to students. CBSE has been implementing these in students since 9th grade, rather than experimenting with 12th itself.
