Group trains Kabayan teachers on basic laboratory experiments
by Ofelia C. Empian

Teachers from Kabayan, Benguet were trained on basic laboratory experiments and received laboratory glasswares and chemicals from Adamson University during its outreach activity.

Educators from Adamson University conducted the training of elementary and secondary teachers from nine participating schools in Kabayan namely Ballay Elementary School, Anchokey ES, Bio B. Modol ES, Adaoay ES, Tawangan ES, Kabayan Central School, Tawangan-Lusod National High School and Kamora NHS on Aug. 27. 

Ivan Lawag, assistant professor of the Department of Chemistry, College of Science of Adamson University, said they provided the training to assist teachers improve their teaching on science and technology. 

Lawag was joined by Adamson University  instructors Grace Ann Samson, Arturo Gaitano III, and Dale Pinili who trained the teachers in partnership with the Department of Education-Benguet.

He said they conceptualized the outreach program to compliment the K to 12 program.

“Based on our experience, products of K to 12 programs were not geared towards higher education just as we expected them to be. During the beginning of class last August, we asked students about the extent of what they had already learned in science and we were shocked that most of them were inexperienced in performing science experiments. These students even came from neighboring towns and provinces around Metro Manila,” he said.

“This need triggered us to be involved in the implementation of the K to 12 program,” he added.

Kabayan is the pilot area for the outreach. The university donated test tubes, beakers, evaporating dish, watch glass, glass rod, graduated cylinders, Erlenmeyer’s flask, safety goggles, micro plates and syringe. The university also donated basic laboratory chemicals that would be useful for the schools in conducting simple science experiments.

The group also provided training and demonstration on how the chemicals can be used in teaching and in laboratory activities.

The visiting lecturers taught basic separation techniques in chemistry, small-scale acids and base determination using different indicators, activity series of metals and metal reactivity, flame test for different metals, acid breath, acid-base titration, and DNA extraction.

“Aside from that, teachers were also taught how to store chemicals and on how to identify the chemical contents of common household materials in lieu of standard chemicals,” he said.
