Selected Junior High School students recently participated in the 2016 Regional Seminar-Workshop in Conducting Science Investigatory Project on July 18-20, 2016 at Royce Convention Center, Grand Astoria Hotel, Zamboanga City conducted by the Samahang Pisika ng Visayas at Mindanao (SPVM) and Natural Sciences Department of the College of Science and Information Technology of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University (CSIT-AdZU).
This activity was participated by students and teachers from both the public and private schools. There were 28 paper proposals in Biology, 15 in Chemistry and 7 in Physics.
Among the proposals, these outputs of our students were presented to the panel of experts:
Title: Banana Peel Activated Carbon as Water Filter
Category: Biology 1
JUMAMIL, Chrisly C G8 – St Faber
KONG, Helene Shoshana DR G8 – St Faber
LAPITAN, Therese Lorelei M G8 – St Faber
SONTILLANO, Renzo Brylle DR G8 – St Faber
TORIBIO, Maycee Jade N G8 – St Faber
Title: Comparing the Effectiveness of Banana Peel Ash and Condensate as Organic Fertilizer on the Growth of Tomatoes
Category: Biology 1

TUBO, Josh Philip D G8 – St Faber
Title: Use of Seebeck Effect in Harnessing Thermal Energy From Boilers
AGOSILA, Neil Ryan A G9 – St Campion
BENSALI, Ben Nadzmier L G9 – St Campion
CATADMAN, Christianne Claire G G9 – St Campion
RIVERA, Patrick Dale Angelo C G9 – St Campion
VARGAS, Joshua Rommel H G10 – St Xavier
Both groups in Biology qualified for the Semi-Finals. The paper proposal on Comparing the Effectiveness of Banana Peel Ash and Condensate as Organic Fertilizer on the Growth of Tomatoes was awarded as Best Paper Proposal in Biology and landed 2nd Place Over-all.
The Physics group came in third place in their category with a very minimal margin of 0.5 points from the second placer. Unfortunately, only two paper proposals were selected in the said category.
It is with pride that we were given the opportunity to represent the school. The students were accompanied by the following science teachers: Ms Leila G Lim, Ms Sheryl Anne T Basa, and Mr Jeffrey O Jalani.
