Science In Action

Making onion specimen on a slide and microscope specimen viewing

MEP-M1/2 students are given the opportunity to let them make their own “Onion specimen on a slide” in order for them to have a basic foundation of knowledge on how to view the cell structure using a microscope. This activity helps the students to enhance not only their cognitive skills as well as it improves different skills in the science process.

Students are excited, happy, and curious while performing the activity which is vital in the learning process. Although their work is not perfectly done, the lessons they acquired matter the most. The lessons that they may acquire must not be limited to a certain aspect so that their cognition and skills will be broadened.

Photosynthesis with M1/2

Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use light to produce food and energy. The process of photosynthesis is always happening in plants and the production of food by the plant is dependent on it. Therefore, understanding this process is essential for humans as it affects our lives in many ways. In this experiment, students learned about photosynthesizing plants and their role in the ecosystem. 

This experiment shows that understanding how light works is essential for using light effectively in photosynthesis processes— something that plants do naturally through photosynthesis. Since most living organisms require light for survival, understanding how light works enables us to take advantage of this natural process. Understanding how light works enables all — humans and microorganisms alike— access to solar energy necessary for life on earth.

Dissection of the Frog and Fish

Understanding anatomy and physiology for both humans and some animals might be challenging to some students. However, integration of the theory to fully hands-on activity will definitely make a huge impact on their understanding of the organism’s system.

The MEP-M2/2 students are more enlightened during the dissection process of the frog and fish and have a clearer view of the body systems most especially how these organs are properly and uniquely arranged is completely amazing. Students are learning a different perspective not only mainly in the dissection process but also in the integration of knowledge in a real application setting.
