Science — A Process Approach, called SAPA in Loyola, was introduced way back in 1973 during the tenure of Fr. McGauley, who was the Principal then. Late Fr. Judge was instrumenta in bringing this methodology to Loyola.
In this Process Approach the complex set of skills used in conducting a scientific investigation are broken down into a number of processes for our students from KG to Std. 5 to develop a sound knowledge of science and its methods.
From the very beginning the students become active participants in these scientific explorations. They observe, classify, measure and deduce. They have the chance to work as scientists by carrying out the kind of experiments which scientists perform in laboratories.
It is here that our Loyoleans, who may not become scientists, will learn that science is not memory or magic but rather a disciplined form of human curiosity.
