Sun Star Bacolod - - Business -

A GROUP of stu­dents com­ing from dif­fer­ent schools and uni­ver­si­ties in Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal has thanked the pro­vin­cial govern­ment for the free ac­cess of lab­o­ra­tory ser­vices at the Pro­vin­cial Feed and Meat Lab­o­ra­tory.

The stu­dents paid a cour­tesy visit to Gov­er­nor Al­fredo G. Marañon Jr. at the Pro­vin­cial Capi­tol Build­ing in Ba­colod City on Tues­day, November 6.

They have been con­duct- ing their re­search stud­ies re­quir­ing lab­o­ra­tory anal­y­sis at the fa­cil­ity, which is un­der the su­per­vi­sion of the Pro­vin­cial Vet­eri­nary Of­fice (PVO).

PVO, in a state­ment, said the sus­tained ef­fort and in­vest­ment of the pro­vin­cial govern­ment in es­tab­lish­ing and op­er­at­ing the lab­o­ra­tory have in­spired stu­dents to get hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence in con­duct­ing their re­searches and ad­vance their learn­ing in the field of sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy.

The province has des­ig­nated com­pet­i­tive, high­lyskilled and qual­i­fied vet­eri­nar­i­ans and lab­o­ra­tory per­son­nel at the Pro­vin­cial Feed and Meat Lab­o­ra­tory to pro­vide ef­fi­cient tech­ni­cal as­sis­tance to its clients, in­clud­ing stu­dents.

Aside from ma­te­ri­als and equip­ment, they also guide stu­dents in do­ing hands-on ac­tiv­i­ties like ex­per­i­ments, it said.

“The avail­abil­ity of lab­o­ra­tory fa­cil­i­ties in the course of stu­dents’ re­search ex­pe­ri­ence is seen to cre­ate a great im­pact in their prob­lem solv­ing and crit­i­cal think­ing skills and fur­ther aid in their ex­pe­ri­en­tial and prac­ti­cal learn­ing,” it added.

More­over, PVO said that al­low­ing stu­dents to use the fa­cil­ity for sev­eral years now has con­trib­uted to im­prov­ing their sci­ence lit­er­acy es­pe­cially in the as­pect of live­stock and poultry de­vel­op­ment uti­liz­ing a stu­dent­friendly ap­proach.

Among the ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion whose stu­dents have availed the ser­vices of the lab­o­ra­tory in­clude Car­los Hi­lado Me­mo­rial State Col­lege, Cole­gio San Agustin­ba­colod, Doña Mon­ser­rat Lopez Me­mo­rial High School, Hini­garan Na­tional High School, Na­tional Sci­ence High School, Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal High School, River­side Col­lege, Tabao Na­tional High School, St. John’s In­sti­tute­se­nior High School, Univer­sity of Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal­reco­le­tos In­te­grated School and Univer­sity of St. La Salle par­tic­u­larly its Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in Food and Tech­nol­ogy stu­dents./epn
