The Philippine Science Heritage Center (PSHC) successfully conducted its seminar-workshop for science teachers, Salinlahi Guro ng Siyensya: An Innovative Way of Teaching Science, on May 7, 2015 at the Philippine Science Heritage Center, DOST Complex, Bicutan, Taguig City.
 
More than a hundred science teachers nationwide attended the activity facilitated by globally renowned scientists, NAST Academician Christopher C. Bernido and Dr. Maria Victoria Carpio-Bernido.
 
Known for introducing a revolutionary way of teaching science and non-science subjects called CVIF Dynamic Learning Program, the Bernidos held activities that gave teachers a glimpse of the program. They explained that CVIF-DLP is composed of 70%-80% learner’s independent activity and 20%-30% lecture discussion.
The two resource persons also shared their driving force in all the things they are doing, which is their vision of having a globally competitive Filipino nation. Many teachers were inspired with the passion and commitment the Bernidos have for the education and for the country.
 
With the overwhelming response PSHC received from schools nationwide, the team is already planning to conduct another Salinlahi Guro ng Siyensya within the year.
 
The Philippine Science Heritage Center is being managed and maintained by the National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST PHL) as mandated by RA 9107. NAST Philippines is the country’s recognition and advisory body on matter related to science.
