This Elementary-School Teacher Makes Science Fun With a Mobile Lab

She's one of this year's Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos.


 

(SPOT.ph) Studying science in school wasn't always fun, especially when it involved alien-sounding scientific terms like "mitosis." Who wouldn't rather play outside, watch cartoons, or sleep? But for one science teacher at a public elementary school in the fringes of Tagaytay City, learning doesn't have to be boring.

 


 

Jennifer M. Rojo, currently a Master Teacher II at Neogan Elementary School, pursued a career in education because of her passion for science and teaching children. In 2015, she authored JenSci–Voc (Joyful Enrichment in Science Vocabulary), a compilation of scientific vocabulary worksheets in the form of puzzles and games, to help students comprehend technical terms in enjoyable ways.

 


 

She also developed the Mobile Sci-Hub/Lab, a house-inspired foldable instructional material that has concept maps of plants and animals as walls and materials for a mini-science laboratory inside. It also has visual aids for topics on electricity, astronomy, geology, and other hard-to-grasp science concepts. The Hub has wheels, making it suitable for schools without enough space.

 


 

For these inspiring and out-of-the-box ideas, Rojo is one of this year's Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos, along with three fellow teachers, three soldiers, and three police officers. Each awardee is set to receive a cash incentive of P1 million each, a gold medallion, and a trophy during the awarding ceremonies on September 7 at the Metrobank Plaza Auditorium, Metrobank Plaza Building, Sen. Gil J. Puyat Avenue, Makati City.
