Some of the comments from those who viewed the exhibit follow.
“A laudable event for the Division of Nueva Vizcaya. TYKFI brought “science” to the masses and free for our pupils, students and teachers—all 44 science exhibits. For the local explainers who are classroom teachers, education supervisors, and science coordinators it also served as an evaluation to gauge the knowledge for the application of sciences.”—Evelyn Apuya,EPS I, Science Secondary, DepEd Nueva Vizcaya Division
“This promotes science and tourism and after visiting they go back to their respective schools and apply and broaden knowledge in science.”—Juan Hernandez Jr., District Supervisor, Bambang I District
“40 days of exploring science and I challenge all the teachers to apply it in their lessons. This promotes tourism. It is the first time that a science centrum was offered for free to the pupils and students of the province. There is a sense of fascination leading pupils and students to become scientists, engineers, chemists etc.”—Dr. Reynalda R. Bangunan, CESO VI-Assistant Schools Division Superintendent, OIC
“This is a viable alternative in teaching science—a venue to touch, hear, see. ‘Centrum’ is a center and a museum for the pupils and students to manipulate.”—May Pagsinohin, Executive Director-PFST
“First maapreciate nila ang concepts and theories, madadagdagan ang interest and awareness in subject and follows the achievement. We will see to it that we make a replica of the contraptions on the caravan. The learnings here can be adopted in the subjects. We are fortunate and grateful na nakarating sa Nueva Vizcaya ito. We hope to have more.”—Ronnie Bibas, OIC-Principal Carolotan H/S
“Magiging exposed yung mga students, bihira kasi sila makalabas at makapag interact sa ganitong klaseng mga museums. Kaya very helpful to sa mga elementary dahil maiilabas nila ang interest nila sa science pagdating nila sa secondary level. This can be sustained by using simple methods and incorporating to the subjects in order to enhance the learning and comprehension of the students. Nagpapasalamat kami sa TYKF na sila pa ang lumapit sa N.V. at nagbigay sa mga bata ng ganitong klaseng experience.”— Marjorie Frany, Teacher Grs.5 & 6 Sta Fe Central School
“I will use the methods learned in the exhibit, incorporate the learnings in other subjects. Super thankful kami sa inyong lahat lalo na kay Dr. Lucio Tan para sa mga bata they will learn more by doing.”—Marilyn T. Ringor, Principal Sta. Rosa E/S
Others who graced the exhibit were Hon. Flaviano D. Balgos, Jr., Municipal Mayor, Bambang and Remedios Panganiban, EPS 1, Science Elementary. The LGU provided as counterpart resource the venue, electricity, and sound system.
