21ST CENTURY TOOLS FOR INTELLECTUAL AND PHYSICAL WELL-BEING
Each ETNS Campus is fully equipped with modern facilities, making our intellectually-stimulating environment conducive for maximal learning. Our classrooms are spacious and organized; our libraries, open to students of Primary level onwards, are well-stocked with classic novels as well as informative encyclopedias; and our science (chemistry and biology) labs as well as our computer labs serve to supplement course requirements as delineated by both Aga Khan University and Karachi Examination Boards. Additionally, our campuses also include a sports ground for students of all ages to participate in outdoor games, athletic practices and sports competitions. Pre-Primary sections contain a play area, swing set and sand box amongst a myriad of other provisions for small children (please see the Pre-Primary page for more details on our activities-based curriculum.) Since ETNS prioritizes the well-being of its students and faculty, we maintain high sanitary standards via provision of a 3-stage water filtration system at each of our campuses to ensure adequately clean drinking water for all; backup generators to maintain uninterrupted learning; and medical services in case of emergencies.

COMPUTER STUDIES DEPARTMENT
ETNS offers several computer studies programs catering to students of Primary and Secondary sections. Over the past few years, we have successfully instated a computer department at each of our campuses, and enlisted the participation of nearly 6,000 students taught by highly qualified faculty specifically trained by IT professionals (via partnerships through SZAIBIST University). We recently held an in-house software competition, Nasra Vision, open to students in classes 3 - 10 in each campus. The students had a given time span to prepare projects on different topics through various softwares. These projects were then displayed in their respective campuses for encouragement.

WAVE OF THE FUTURE: ROBOTICS AND STEM
Robotics (or artificial intelligence), a rapidly emerging technology, has become the hallmark of the age of the information. Integration of robotics in our daily lives has replaced human labor with machine-generated precision and speed. Incorporating this cutting-edge facet in our academics, we have developed a Robotics Club whose participants have created initial-level robotics, which have been displayed over the past 2 years in our exhibitions, Nasra Vision I & II. The ETNS (main) Saddar Campus has been upgraded with high-speed wifi and the installation of necessary softwares including: Scratch Programming, Code Combat, Jupiter Notebook : python, Raspberry Pi. In a further effort to expand our technological provisions, all campuses of Nasra Schools will soon be adding laboratories allocated specifically to the high demand STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers, purported to be on the frontline of future global economy.
In Jan. 2019, Pakistan Academic Council (PAC) and EDVON Robotics arranged a “Robot Programming Workshop” for schools at NED University. Two computer teachers from each ETNS campus also attended this workshop to help them understand the importance of integrating STEM Based Robotic Education with our school’s regular curriculum. Since we are in the process of establishing STEM Laboratories in each campus this workshop helped them achieve a better degree of understanding for this field.
