In the field of Science, one’s abilities can be developed through one’s sense of awareness, creativeness and inventiveness.
Along this line of thought, the Ateneo de Zamboanga University Grade School Science club was organized. It proposes to provide more information, opportunities and occasions for students to pursue and widen their interest in science in an informal situation and atmosphere.
Given the proper guidance and direction, members explore the ever dynamic world of science. Young boys and girls’ intense curiosity will be challenged. Their scientific skills will be sharpened through the carefully prepared exposures offered by this club.
This club hopes to turn boys and girls into young Filipino scientists.
