Robotics Kits

 

 


SUBJECT AREA: Science and Technology Robotics Class


NAME AND POSITION OF REQUESTOR: Sevedeo J. Malate, Pisay Bicol Robotics Team Coach


DETAILED DESCRIPTION:

As technology becomes increasingly more important in the world today, it is critical that students not only learn how to use technology but also understand how to create it. One of the Elective courses offered in Philippine Science High School is Robotics, a subject perceived as equally exciting and challenging by scholars. For the past seven years, PSHS-BRC has represented the Philippines (as winner in national level) in World Robot Olympiad (WRO) in various countries.

We aim to continue our active participation and improve the student projects. For this purpose, we need more Robotics kits. With more resources available, we hope to help Pisayanos develop invaluable scientific skills such as problemsolving, logical reasoning, critical thinking, and creativity.

 


ESTIMATED COST:

EV3 SET - P44,500.00 per set

EV3 expansion set – P17,000.00 per set

Subtotal: P61,500

Handling Costs: 3,075

Total – P64,575.00

Power Tools for Making Things


SUBJECT AREA: ADTECH 2


NAME AND POSITION OF REQUESTOR: Monica Xavier, CST Unit


DETAILED DESCRIPTION:

In ADTECH (formerly Tech Skills), students learn about the highs and heartaches (or “are introduced to the basics”) of the design and engineering professions by making and troubleshooting their creations. They also learn how to use and manipulate tools and materials.


Actually, the lab could do with MANY MORE items, but let’s start with one of my favorite tools: the jigsaw. Well-used and well-loved, the jigsaw cuts down on project making time. It also gets used for robot projects, props making for the Ramayana, research and more.


You might ask: why not more than 2 jigsaws? Answer: I already have one, and supervising more than 3 simultaneous jigsaws at any given time is a bit too risky for 1 teacher.


* Makita - Made in Japan, is more expensive compared to the Makita models that are Made in China, but they are very robust.


ESTIMATED COST:

TOTAL: 23,200.00

Shredder for Materials Recovery

The repair of an old shredder would be most appreciated to facilitate the breaking up of twigs, stalks and leaves into smaller pieces before pouring them into the compost pits. 
This would be located at the compost pit area, near the Materials Recovery Facility.
I would encourage Biology teachers to have their students take part in this activity and get a feel at composting to help protect the environment.

Below is the Materials Recovery Facility, where segregated waste (recyclables, paper, nonbiodegradables) are contained.

Below are the compost pits where biodegradables (food wastes, leaves, twigs, etc.) are dumped for composting.

Below is a cost estimate for the project.

Pisay-Bicol Needs a Centrifuge


SUBJECT AREA: Science and Technology Research 2


NAME AND POSITION OF REQUESTOR: Marie Christine M. Obusan, Research Coordinator


DETAILED DESCRIPTION:

PSHS scholars need to carry out the objectives of their respective projects in Science and Technology Research (STR) 2. A number of Biology-related topics require the use of centrifuge for procedures involving material separation and substance preparation. Currently, Bicol Region Campus needs the equipment, and the provision of one will facilitate faster completion of research projects by students without having to work off campus for laboratory needs.

ESTIMATED COST:

Handling Costs: 1,030

TOTAL: 21,630
