Last July 13-14, Dr. Alyssa Peleo-Alampay, together with faculty members from the laboratory, welcomed students back to the National Institute of Geological Sciences for their bridging program. The program was designed to fill the gap left by the online learning set-up, particularly in the laboratory component of the course. In this bridging activity, students were allowed to touch and examine the wide variety of specimens from the Institute’s Invertebrate and Vertebrate Paleontology Laboratory. Afterwards, the students were toured around the NIGS-UPGAA Museum to showcase the Institute’s mineral, rock and fossil collection.
With the easing health protocols and decline in COVID-19 cases, the laboratory hopes to welcome more students and colleagues back to NIGS, as well as the Museum.
