A hands-on approach to learning provides the opportunity to students to experience directly the concepts they study. As students deploy their senses and thinking skills, experimenting also helps increase knowledge retention. This process facilitates their understanding and increases their interest and curiosity about scientific inquiry and understanding of the concepts. Active experimentation allows students to increase their problem solving skills, their critical thinking, judgment and decision making skills and many more.
