The objective of this document is to report the activities of the SEED project carried out during
the months of March and April, 2011, at some of the schools involved in the Project.
There were five workshops conducted in Brazil using the SEED kit “Buoyancy”.
The volunteers explained to the students a little about the concepts involved within the kit, and
they also conducted a few experiments comparing the buoyancy of different materials in different
SEED once again held a remarkable workshop in the Philippines!
A day full of fun and learning!
As a teacher facilitator, I am overwhelmed with the cooperation, motivation, and participation of the students!
Moreover, the coordinators, facilitators, volunteers, and the speaker really worked hard!
I hope that more SEED workshops will be conducted here in the Philippines so that more and more Filipino students can appreciate science through practical activity!
Last September 24, the Philippines--Quirino High School, to be exact--experienced high temperatures, scattered rain showers, and thunderstorms of blessings from Mr. Simon Lim, the SEED Workshop facilitator/trainer on water testing. I was flooded with great amazement as well as joy for it was my first time to do water testing in that context.
My groupmates experienced a landslide of cooperation and erosion of misconceptions.
I agree with the words of Edmund S. Muskie, US Senator:
"High quality water is more than the dream of the conservationists, more than a political slogan; high quality water,
in the right quantity at the right place at the right time, is essential to health, recreation, and economic growth."
Really, water is essential in all cases.
But the government might have overlooked the significance of water as regards to its water-related cases in hospitals.
