AdNU-SHS Joins INECAR for their Work Immersion

We’re thrilled to share the success of our Senior High School students’ recent work immersion program, conducted in partnership with the Ateneo de Naga University – Senior High School and the Institute for Environmental Conservation and Research (INECAR)! 

Before the immersion proper, an orientation session was held to provide the students with guidelines and ideas on what to expect during their stay and at the same time specific instructions on the tasks to be done.

Throughout the program, our students gained hands-on experience in various fields, from conducting tree surveys and inventories outdoors

to honing their skills in GIS (Geographic Information System) by building feature attribution on computers

and even delving into laboratory work through herbarium maintenance activities.

Their major outputs showcase their dedication and expertise:

1.StoryMaps depicting the trees surveyed in 2 major Plazas of Naga City and the surveyed trees within the Ateneo de Naga University – Bagumbayan Sur Campus. Here are the links to their StoryMaps:

 Evergreen Parks of Naga

Curae Naturae

2. Detailed documentation of the structures within the selected 12 barangays of the city, categorized according to the National Building Code of the Philippines. They identified floor levels and provided names for those recognizable.

 

     3. Sample plant species properly pasted for storage.

This experience not only provided valuable insights into real-world applications of their studies but also allowed them to develop practical skills and feel how environmental research activities are being done. 

A processing session relative to their work immersion was conducted during their last day at the INECAR. The session seeks to assess the feedback between the students and the INECAR staff regarding the duration of the program. 

A big round of applause to our dedicated students for their hard work and enthusiasm during this enriching experience!  Congratulations and may your learnings at the INECAR help you in your future endeavors!
