Abstract

The current study aimed to explore the experiences of teachers and students in science laboratories concerning problems and facilities at the secondary level in District Peshawar. Employing quantitative methodology, the study's objectives included exploring science teachers' experiences in conducting practical work and determining the learning experiences of science students in laboratories. Secondary school science teachers and grade 10th female science students constituted the sample. Eight teachers and 163 students were selected through a simple random sampling using the Rao soft online sampling calculator. Two self-structured questionnaires were used for data collection and frequency and percentage were used for the analysis. Results revealed that most schools need more basic laboratory facilities, including chemicals and apparatuses. Similarly, the support staff needed to be more sufficient. The study recommends that laboratories have all the required physical and human resources. Additionally, safety training for teachers and students may be provided.
