As the research adviser of these students, it is both challenging and exciting to mentor students in doing projects related to geography. Being a science high school, we have been accustomed to doing researches that involve laboratory work. But these projects are different and these will be very exciting since our students will be exposed to a new approach to finding solutions to the pressing issues in our community.
To the teachers from other sites, my students and I will be very glad to learn from you and conduct exchanges with your students. We welcome your comments and suggestions so that we can improve our projects and that we can broaden the scope of our researches.
