I. EXTENSION ACTIVITIES – First Quarter 2016

Extension Activities of the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science/Information Technology, Mathematics and Physics


A. The first quarter extension commitments of the college departments focused on preparation of projects and programs aligned with the University Extension Service Framework on WATERSHED. All departments participated in the extension writeshop each producing draft departmental extension programs. Extension commodity declarations per department were the following:

Biology: Community-based transfer of knowledge, skills, aspirations on biology.

Chemistry: Water quality assessment and watershed protection, rehabilitation, sustainability; Transfer of KRAS in Chemistry.

CS-IT: Transfer of KRAS on computing science, ICT; Computer Software development technical support; institutional digital systems development.

Mathematics: Community-based quantitative skills development; Instructional support of DepEd faculty; Integrated extension services to institutions and to internal or external development projects/programs.

Physics: Transfer of KRAS in physics to teachers of DepED and other interest groups; Training on robotics and development of mechanical systems demonstrative of laws of physics.


B. Prepared and Disseminated Information, Education and Communication Materials (IEC Materials)

Lecture Power Points (Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Research)

Worksheets (Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Research)

Problem Sets (Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Research)


C. Transfer of knowledge and techniques on various areas of specialization.

Technologies Transferred

1. Biologically Sound Management of Local Government Units: Masbate and Manito Projects Approximately: 100 households x two municipalities = 200 household beneficiaries

2. Research protocol design

2.1. 30 Health Emergency Management (DRRM Responders) graduate students At DOH-Manila

2.2. 30 faculty members of BUCAF – 31 August – 1 September, 2016

3. Statistical analysis

3.1. 30 Health Emergency Management (DRRM Responders) graduate students At DOH-Manila

3.2. 30 faculty members of BUCAF – 31 August – 1 September, 2016


D. Provided technical assistance to external entities

a. Masbate Local Government Unit

b. Regional Statistics Council, Region V

* Developed the Core Indicators Matrix Input for Bicol Region

* Negotiated for Tapping the Bicol University’s Mathematics/Statistics Faculty for the Regional Training on Statistics for Development Planning(Favorably acted on by the Regional Statistics Council in favor of Bicol University instead of the expensive training quotation of the Philippine Statistical Training and Research Institute)

c. NAPOLCOM Region V:

c.1. Ugnayan sa Barangay ng Legazpi

Action on Top Three Crimes per Barangay

Participants Local Chief Executive & LuponngKapayapaan Chair

Per Barangay = 120 (of 140 expected)

= 4hours x 120 participants = 60 person training days

c.2. Model Supervisor and Model Associate Supervisor Performance Rating Matrix Development

c.3. Model Supervisor and Model Associate Supervisor Write-up

c.4. Model PNP National Competitions Region V Candidate’s Portfolio Preparation
