A total of 64 teachers and 454 students attended the UP NISMED Open Lab on 13-14 August 2014, which showcased science activities at the basic education level. It also featured interactive courseware for elementary school mathematics that NISMED jointly developed with the Department of Science and Technology’s Science Education Institute and Advanced Science and Technology Institute as well as a poster exhibit of Marie Curie’s chemistry and physics hands-on lessons translated in Filipino by SEAMEO-INNOTECH with the collaboration of NISMED staff.

Students and teachers alike were amazed and fascinated by the engaging and fun-filled science and mathematics activities. Through the Open Lab, the Institute was able to reach out to many students as well as teachers, by providing meaningful experiences that arouse interest for learning science and mathematics.

The Open Lab is part of a series of events in celebration of UP NISMED’s 50th anniversary last year.
