FMIPA UNS – A total of 135 students of Al Abidin International Islamic Elementary School (SDII Al Abidin) consisting of class V visited the Biology Laboratory of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences UNS on Tuesday (20/8/2019). This visit is in the context of outing class activities that are routinely carried out by the school.
Prior to the visit to the laboratory, the Al Abidin students and their accompanying teachers were welcomed by the head of the biology laboratory, Dr. Nita Etikawati in the Hall of Building C FMIPA. Dr. Nita thanked SDII Al Abidin for visiting the Biology Laboratory. Hopefully with this visit, students can learn and know more about animal anatomy.
“Hopefully with this visit, children can learn about various animals and love biology,” said Nita in front of the students and accompanying teachers.
Guided by the Laboratory Assistant, the students were shown the digestive system of various types of animals, ranging from aves, pisces to mammals. The children looked enthusiastic, because at school they had never received the material directly by dissecting animals. They know the digestive system only through pictures.
Dimas, one of the students was happy because it was a new thing that had never been practiced in school.
“I’m happy, because I’ve never been at school. Here (the Biology lab) can see the digestive system of animals directly,” said Dimas with a smile.
By occupying the four existing laboratories, the children were divided into eight groups where each group was guided by a laboratory assistant. [Mnr/MIPA]
