Bulacan State University is a state-funded institution of higher learning established in 1904 by virtue of Act 74 of the Philippine Commission of 1901 as an intermediate school set up by the American regime. It was converted into a chartered state university in 1993 by virtue of Republic Act 7665. Its main campus is located in City of Malolos, Bulacan province, Philippines. It has four satellite campuses in the province . It also has an international campus in Hong Kong that offers graduate and collegiate degree courses.The university is mandated to provide higher professional/technical training and promote research, advanced studies and progressive leadership. It has been identified by the Commission on Higher Education as one of the Center for Excellence and Development institutions in the country and one of the Training Centers nationwide for teachers pursuing education in areas beyond their specialization.

The complex concepts and vocabulary of biology classes discourage many students. In this study, a pretest-posttest model was used to test the effectiveness of an educational card game in reinforcing biological concepts in comparison with traditional teaching methods. The subjects of this study were two biology classes at Bulacan State University-Sarmiento Campus. Both classes received conventional instruction; however, the experimental group's instruction was supplemented with the card game, while the control group's instruction was reinforced with traditional exercises and assignments. The score increases from pretest to posttest showed that both methods effectively reinforced biological concepts, but a t test showed that the card game is more effective than traditional teaching methods. Additionally, students from the experimental group evaluated the card game using five criteria: goals, design, organization, playability, and usefulness. The students rated the material very satisfactory. © 2014 A. F. Gutierrez.

The atmosphere is the layer of gases surrounding our planet. It is vital in sustaining life. A clear and clean sky appears blue to our naked eye. Dust, smoke, pollen, tiny droplets of water and other particles which float in the air make the sky appear hazy. This introduction into the atmosphere of chemicals, particulate matter, or biological materials is called air pollution. It harms the environment and is a major contributor to respiratory ailments, skin cancer, ozone depletion and global warming. Since the earth's atmosphere is a common resource which communities and nations share, it's quality has become a national, regional or even global concern. The atmosphere has certain measurable optical property which can be studied and analyzed. Light particles or photons with varying wavelengths coming in from outer space interact with the atmosphere as they pass through towards the surface of the earth Particles and molecules in the air reflect, absorb or scatter photons. Photons which are not reflected, scattered or absorbed, travel or diffuse through the atmosphere and reach the surface of the earth to be utilized by humans, plants for photosynthesis and solar cells for the production of renewable energy. These photons are measured by this research's photon diffusion analyzer Photon data is processed by a computer program. The photon analyzer, application software and the A+ Humanoid operating system used in the research were crafted by the proponent and researcher of this study This study was able to accurately measure the amount of light particles or photons reaching any specific location. It was determined that the level of photons is inversely proportional to the level of air pollution and directly proportional to the air quality of the particular area. Photon measurements were done initially in three locations, City of Manila, Caloocan City and the vicinity of BSU Bustos Campus. The results were then analyzed and compared to weather satellite's atmospheric data for confirmation. © 2012 OSA.

The principle of Value Engineering is applied to make an innovative product that can help the public and the environment. Value Engineering is a technique in which the value of a system’s output is optimized by improving the function or reducing the cost. Innovation is the application or creation of new product to satisfy new requirements and market needs. Wood has been an important construction material since humans began building shelters. It has always been used extensively for furniture, such as chairs, tables and beds. But there will come a time that the consumption of woods is more than the amount of trees that are growing back. For these purpose a composite board that can be an alternative to wood using waste to reduce the need to consume natural resources is created. The coconut coir fibers, plastic resin, and hardener are used as the materials for the composite board. In order to come up with the product, the techniques including coir pounding and washing, mold waxing, molding, pressing, drying, and polishing were executed. Upon completion of the project, a naturally wood looking product is manufactured because of the coir strands which even made the product stronger than ordinary plywood. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2015.
