Sir Padampat Singhania Education
Centre situated in the heart of
Kanpur, the buzzing industrial city of
Uttar – Pradesh, India. Mills, Factories,
Industrial Units have been a part of
this city since long. It is in dire need of
landscaping and development of
green zones for its sustainability.
What could be better than educating
our children about environment,
conservation, recycling, renewability
and reuse within a clean - green
The Botanical garden houses more than 2000 genera of Algae, Fungi,
Bryophytes, Pteridophytes, Gymnosperms and Angiosperms which are shown to
the students to clarify the concept of plant modification and adaption, plant –
to- plant interaction , phytoevolution ,taxonomy, biodiversity, eco conservation
,waste-land management, different methods of plant reproduction etc. This
garden study develops aesthetic sense in the students, and inculcates love for
plants and emphasizes the need to conserve the various plant species.
The school also has an array of gardens developed on various themes to
provide enormous facility of academic research and development and
also serve as live teaching aids for our students.

As a part of the green campus initiative, our school
already has trees like Rudraksha, Kalpvriksha,
Neem, Peepal, Palash, Gular, Banyan, Khus – Khus
etc. and we focus on planting more trees.

Sir Padampat Singhania Education Centre is the first among the few schools across the country to be licensed by CBSE for teaching biotechnology and
it has achieved excellence . The school has fully operational biotechnology lab equipped with centrifugation, pathological diagnosis, biochemical
analysis, incubation, distillation, protein and DNA separation among other facilities has been well appreciated by educationists and scientists.
Among them Dr.P. Pushpangadan,
Director National Botanical
Research Institute and winner of
the Equator Initiative Prize who
described his visit to the our school
was an "exhilarating experience".
Biodiversity Museum of Taxonomy
The Biodiversity Museum of
Taxonomy consists of various
specimens that have been prepared
from the material available in the
botanical garden. It preserves various
plant specimens so that the different
plant phenomena – types of
inflorescence, symbiosis, hetrophylly,
types of plant diseases, abnorm-
secondary growth, variegation etc.
can be studied at any time
throughout the year.
In the practical classes the students conduct basic
biochemical techniques like sterilization,
preparation of buffers and media, determination of
pH, separation of proteins by chromatography
protein analysis and DNA and protein
electrophoresis and various experiments in
BIOINFORMATICS. Bud sorting by centrifugation,
cell counting Cell and tissue culture and genetic
engineering are very important aspects of
biotechnology, therefore the structure, component,
division, growth and development of cell, various
cellular techniques(microscopy, cell sorting, cell
fraction , cell growth determination)genetics,
genome function and genetic techniques along with
cell variability also being taught.
