Ballay Integrated School in Kabayan Receives Science Digital Library from Lions Int’l Club-Cavite

One set of DOST-STARBOOKS – Science and Technology Academically Research-based Openly Operated Kiosk Station was donated by the Lions International Club – Cavite  Association of Science and  Mathematics Educators Philippine Private Schools to Ballay Integrated School in Kabayan.

STARBOOKS is a computer set containing hundreds of thousands of digitized science and technology resources in various formats such as text, video and audio. It is the first science digital library in the Philippines that can be operated without internet connection.

DOST STII Director Richard Burgos and Provincial S&T Director Sheila Marie Singa-Claver joined the Lions Club – Cavite team during the turn-over, users training, and signing of the Memorandum of Agreement at the said school on January 21, 2023.

Dir. Burgos encouraged the school to maximize the use of the STARBOOKS,  which is very helpful for easy access to learning resources especially that internet connectivity is one of the limitations in the area.

 BIS Principal Bhede Martin said the learning resources will benefit about 195 learners in the school to include Alternative Learning School students in the area. Martin further extended her gratitude to the donors.

Moreover, aside from STARBOOKS, other learning resources and school supplies, hygiene and Eyewear kits, health supplements and some Agricultural tools were distributed to BIS learners and parents. This activity is part of the advocacy activities of Lions International – Cavite ASMEPPS, Baguio City Family and Friends Lions Club, and Saint Francis Assisi College.
