Science Club Announces Alternative Energy and Information Campaign Projects

New Science Club sets Ambitious Goal

The new MSC Science Club (MSC) which was formed out of the old Math-Sci Club, sets its sights of having an alternative powered science classroom in time for the school’s 25th Anniversary. Recognizing the continuous increase in the cost of electrical power, the club made research of a suitable non-traditional power source for the school its main objective for this school year.

In support of this goal, the MSC administration acquired a 129-project alternative energy experimental kit for use of the students.

Alternative Energy Experiments

MSC acquired a project kit to enable student to conduct up to 129 experiments

In addition the club will also conduct information campaign on two main problems presently affecting the community:

  • Cocolisap”- steps to control the spread of the scale insects that threatens the coconut industry and
  • Aedes mosquitoes – control of reproduction of mosquito carriers of Dengue and Chikungunya virus

The information campaign will be mainly though the club’s planned website.  The club may organize some seminars in the nearby communities.

MSC 25th Foundation Day

by Ike Prudente

On Dec. 4, 2014, we will be celebrating our 25th Foundation Day. In line with this, we are preparing some activities in addition to whatever plans the Alumni Association has.

First is the Search for Outstanding MSC Alumni. We will be awarding 25 Tech-Voc, 25 High School and 25 Short Course (FCO, ACO, Caregiving and Call Center) graduates during our Foundation Day. The criteria will be announced in early June.

Second is the 25 MSC – 25 Math Short Cuts. Every week, we will send a very useful math technique to all subscribers of the 25 MSC Newsletter which will come out beginning the second week of June. This Newsletter will be available to all – to MSC Alumni, your friends and relatives. Anyone who wishes to subscribe to this newsletter can fill out the form on the right of this page, or click on this link, just send a email with “Subscribe” on the subject line to

Third is the MSC Directory. We would like to keep track of all former
MSC students so we will start to gather data for an MSC directory which will be made accessible to all MSC alumni.

Fourth but not the least and surely not the last is the creation of an MSC Scholarship Fund. MSC has given many MSC scholarships to deserving students in the past, but we have not institutionalized it. With the creation of the MSC Scholarship Fund we hope to have more donors and more scholars.


Sa MSC Caregiving Course – pay 50% later!

Para sa mga naninirahan sa barangay ng San Gabriel, San Miguel, at mga karatig na mga barangay na nais mag-aral ng Caregiving, maari nang mag-enrol na kalahati lamang ang babayaran. Ang matitirang kalahati ay babayaran kapag nakakuha na ng trabaho.
Ito ang pahayag ni G. Ike Prudente sa pag-balik niya at kanyang pamilya sa San Gabriel na tahanan nila noong 70’s at 80’s. Kasama nila sa paglipat sa San Gabriel ang buong paaralan ng VYP-MSC Institute of Technology, kabilang na ang Caregiving School nito. Para sa iba pang mga detalye ay magtungo lamang sa MSC.

San Gabriel: bagong tahanan ng MSC IT

Abril 2012 nang lumipat ang buong VYP-MSC Institute of Technology sa Barangay San Gabriel, San Pablo City.

Ngayon ay napakalawak at napakamaaliwalas na ang paligid ng mga mag-aaral dahil sa malalaking puno at magagandang halaman sa loob at paligid ng paaralan.
Magandang balita rin ito para sa mga naninirahan dito at sa mga katabing lugar dahil sa mayroon nang malapit at de kalidad na paaralang pwedeng pasukan nang mga batang taga rito.

Green School undergoes continuous improvement

Now that MSC has completely trasferred to its Green School Campus in San Gabriel, its facilities continue to be upgraded to keep pace, if not, be better than schools located in the city proper.
Among the facilities are:
– well-equipped science/robotics lab.
– airconditioned 38-unit computer lab.
– well ventilated, eco-friendly classrooms
– campus-wide wi-fi access
– basketball court and open grounds
– music room – under construction using plastic bottles as building material

Maging “BOOKKEEPER” sa halagang 8-libong piso lamang… (… o Programmer, o Computer Technician)

Maaari nang makapagtapos ng kursong Bookkeeping, Programming, at Computer Hardware Sevicing (o Computer Technician) sa napakababang halagang maaring umabot lamang nang walong libong piso. Ito ay dahil sa diskwentong maaring umabot hanggang 40%.
Bukod pa sa napakababang bayarin ay maari ding matapos ang isang kurso sa loob lamang ng isang semestre o apat na buwan! Kaya’t ang mga kursong iniaalok ng MSC ay maaaring matapos ng wala pang dalawang taon.
Dahil dito ay ilang uri ng trabaho ang naghihintay sa kanya sa panahong makapagtapos siya sa MSC.
Para sa karagdagang detalye, magsadya sa MSC Institute of Technology sa San Gabriel, san Pablo City

A school with 4 LIBRARIES (only @ MSC)

Yes you read it right, MSC has four libraries!
The main library contains general information and reference books for high school and tech-voc courses. Several Internet-enabled computers are also in the library for research and email.
A “science library corner” which contains Science and Robotics books is found in the science lab. while a similar “computer science library” which contains reference boks on programming, hardware servicing, and miscellaneous software is located at the computer lab.

The newest is a 40 sq. m. “Silid Booklatan”, a joint project of Booklat Isip Inc., Kiwanis Club-Buklod San Pablo, United Architects of the Phils. – UP Diliman Chapter, and MSC. Located near the main entrance of the school, its holdings range from nursery and children’s books, mystery and action novels, magazines, and hi-tech trade books.
Silid Booklatan aims to develop the habit of reading among community members, especially the youth that is why it is open to the public. So if you happen to pass by MSC, do not hesitate to come and read some books at Silid Booklatan.

Galing MSC, galing MSC!

Nagwagi si James Patrick Maghirang, mag-aaral ng MSC High School ng 3rd Place sa ICT-PC Assembly with Configuration and Networking sa nakaraang Regional Festival of Talents (Technolympics) na ginanap sa Nasugbu, Batangas noong Enero 14 – 18, 2013.
Si James ay kasalukuyang nasa 3rd year high school sa MSC at isa siya sa dalawang natatanging kalahok na nagwagi galing sa San Pablo City Division.
Ang MSC High School ang napili nang pamunuan ng San Pablo City Division ng Dep. Ed. na kumatawan sa division at lumahok sa paligsahan sa ICT-Tarpaulin Design, ICT-PC Assembly with Configuration and Networking at ICT-Webpage Design at hindi naman sila nabigo sa pagtitiwalang kanilang ibinigay dahil sa galing ng mga mag-aaral na galing sa MSC lalo na sa larangan ng ICT (Information and Communications Technology)!

MSC: K to 12 ready

With implementation of DepEd’s K to 12 curriculum, VYP-MSC is one of the few schools which is better prepared for the transition.
Having a high school department and operating a Tech-Voc department at the same time, is ideal for the adaptation of the K to 12 program. This is because the school already has the resources and personnel for the additional two years of high school (Senior High). Very little adjustments would be necessary for the execution of the program.
For schools who operate a high school only, they need to do a lot more work to comply with the new set up. Some opt to partner with Tech-Voc schools and colleges or universities. But for MSC, that is not necessary.

Mga mag-aaral ng MSC, gagamit ng Tablet PC

Simula sa darating na pasukan sa Hunyo, 2013, magsisimula na ang paggamit ng mga estudyante sa MSC nang tablet PC para sa kanilang mga leksiyon.
Ayon kay G. Ike Prudente, ito ay bilang pagtugon sa adhikain ng MSC na manguna sa kaalaman at paggamit ng makabagong teknolohiya lalo na sa pag-aaral ng mga kabataan.
Unti-unting papalitan ng nasabing tablet PC ang mga aklat na simula’t-sapol ay pinagkukunan ng kaalaman ng mga mag-aaral. Pati leksiyon ng mga guro ay ilalagay sa isang “server” kung saan makikita ng mga mag-aaral ang mga ito sa pamamagitan ng tablet PC.
