About:

in 25 years of teaching [7th Grade Class; 8th Grade Earth Science; 9th Grade Physical Sciences; 10th Grade Biology; 11th Grade Chemistry; 12th Grade Physics; university-level chemistry courses - General Inorganic Chemistry (Lecture & Lab); Organic Chemistry I (Lecture & Lab); Analytical Chemistry (Lecture & Lab); Biochemistry (Lecture and Lab)] I was not able to engage in meaningful research outside the classroom.

This year, I was made aware of the International Year of Chemistry 2011 through your various multi-media campaigns. Hence, this is my chance to engage students to get involved in basic, simple research that will be a major contribution to a global database .

In doing so, students will: (a) will appreciate and understand the scientific methd in chemistry (b) will encourage interest of young people to do active research (3) to create enthusiasm in pursuing a career in chemistry research (4) to show young ladies that women are taking active roles in chemistry research

Tomorrow (Monday 11.07.2011) I have called for a meeting of the Chemical Society of the Adventist University of the Philippines to plan for the Water Assay Project a.s.a.p.

When data is obtained, we will submit these to (a) Chemical Society of the Philippines - Southern Tagalog Chapter and (b) to you
