In line with its strong culture of volunteerism, PSYSC in partnership with World Vision conducted a BASIC Outreach Program, an avenue for the organization to give back to the community and reach out to those less fortunate youth, at the Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC), Agham Road, Quezon Avenue, Quezon City last March 23, 2015.
To hype up everyone’s mood, the NECATs danced to the NCSIW 2014 Dance so that the children can follow. A lecture on some facts and trivia about engineering was given by PSYSC Finance Officer, Steven Michael Resma and was followed by fun, educational, and interactive activities on basic science concepts.
The event catered around 60 children with ages ranging from 6-12 years old. The children actively participated and finished all the science-related workshops and games with the guidance and help from their Ates and Kuyas. Snacks and lunch were given to the children as well as simple tokens and gifts like books and a shirt. To wrap up the event, Annie Grace Bachiller, the organization’s Vice President for Internal Affairs delivered her closing remarks.
PSYSC provided a fun-filled day with plenty of entertainment to the children. Seeing them smile and laugh even for a short period of time despite the weight of the loads they carry, I can say that PSYSC once again succeeded.
