    Say for example you are learning about enzymes, so you might do a classic experiment in your class involving the use of pectinase enzymes on apples to help yield juice. Would you feel this helps you to 'visualise the science'?

    It depends on the practical. Not that one.

    But for example, I benefited on doing experiments to classify bacteria by gram staining or growth or lack of growth in a particular medium.

    Looking at various types of cells on a slide through a microscope has reinforced the fact that prokaryotes tend to be smaller than eukaryotes.

    There were experiments in natural sciences which helped me to understand indeed. But more important: such experiments awoke my interest in them everytime.

    I remember that I have seen how cells are growing in number. That was a turning point and an experience which caused my interest. Since that time I was not interest in cytology only, but also in another lessons and topics of nautral sciences. The visualization of experiments in another sciences (physics and chemistry) have made a great contribution too. Without them, I would have never read so much in textbooks and thus learnt in these subjects.
