The demonstrations are widely accepted as complementary tools for science communication. With the progress of time and technology the use and mode of demonstrations have also been modified. Modern cognitive science research reveals the requirement of student’s active role for better perception of conceptual learning. Strategically this can be achieved more effectively in an atmosphere in which ideas are openly generated, debated and tested through demonstration experiment. Both the laboratory experiences and demonstrations are found to activate student’s interest for initiation & perception of learning. This paper will provide an overview of the role of chemical demonstration experiments for conceptual learning of chemistry as well as green chemistry.

The demonstrations are widely accepted as complementary tools for science communication. With the progress of time and technology the use and mode of demonstrations have also been modified. Modern cognitive science research reveals the requirement of student’s active role for better perception of conceptual learning. Strategically this can be achieved more effectively in an atmosphere in which ideas are openly generated, debated and tested through demonstration experiment. Both the laboratory experiences and demonstrations are found to activate student’s interest for initiation & perception of learning. This paper will provide an overview of the role of chemical demonstration experiments for conceptual learning of chemistry as well as green chemistry.
