COURSE SYLLABUS in Research II (Science Investigatory Project)

DEPARTMENT : Science and Technology

Course Title : Science Research II

Faculty Mr. Eugene D. Salonga

School Year 2014-2015

Course Description Science Research II is a continuation of the topics discussed in Research I (Basic
Research). While basic research orients its students with the different types of research
as well as the skills associated with research, Research II will then turn its attention to
preparing the students in making the grand determining product of a science high
school: the Science Investigatory Project or commonly known as the SIP. This SIP is also
the main output of this curriculum. By the end of the school year, the students are
expected to be hardwired as a science researcher.

Objectives/Values At the end of the Science Research II program, the learners should have
developed the following competencies:
1. Differentiate the SIP from other types of research
2. Awareness of the importance of the SIP in a Science High School
3. Familiarize themselves with standard laboratory safety protocols
4. Distinguish the different plant collection and extraction procedures
5. Handle animals properly following the guidelines of the schools IACUC
6. Practice different egg windowing, aseptic, and microbial techniques
7. Prepare the different forms and write-uals of the SIP
8. Search for a relevant, and economically significant SIP
9. Prepare for a topic proposal defense
10. Formulate the research problem
11. Search for related and background literature of the chosen SIP
12. Gather data pertinent to the SIP
13. Process, and interpret data gathered from the research process
14. Summarize answers for the tested research hypothesis
15. Draw conclusions from the summarized answers in the research process
16. Recommend actions to improve the research paper, product, or proposals for
further studies
