NOW that classes have ended for most schools and are about to end for some, plenty of class projects are bound to end up in trash bins. So, how can students make their projects still useful long after they get their grades for it? Perhaps they can learn from some Paref Springdale students who did something charitable with theirs.
Four Grade 10 students from Paref Springdale School donated their physics projects to the Barrio Luz National High School (BLNHS).
Lance Jeremy Lim organized the group that included his classmates Scott Reyes, EJ Matugas and Kyle Gonzales. Lance observed that completed science projects were just abandoned by his classmates. He decided to recycle the trebuchets by giving these to students who might not have the same resources his classmates have.
The Springdale students took the time to explain the mathematical ratios and the mechanics of the working trebuchets to their grade 10 counterparts in the presence of BLNHS teachers Neil Angtud, Marjorie Nellas, Jovelyn Entrampas, Julius Samson and assistant to the principal, Deseree Atabay. Dr. Gemma Bendebel, the school’s principal, was accommodating and receptive to the boys’ desire to give back to the community.
Lance is hoping to continue his project by collecting future science projects including those of other grade levels. (Contributed article)
