Inspired by the University’s Guided Research, also known as, G-Res which was initiated by our former Research Director, Dr. Barbara Wong-Fernandez, the excitement and fulfilment of accomplishing a research study is now being experienced at an early age through Kiddie G-Res. The 4th to 6th graders started their research journey in SY. 2016- 2017, with 12 research works and posters, and for three years, a total of 24 qualitative researches were presented already during the culminating activities with their proud parents as audience. Every participant of this project was being guided from title-writing up to poster-making. From the list of researches in 2016-2017, “The Most Used Digital Application of Grades 5 and 6 Pupils” by Jothamea Christine C. Delmendo of 6-A is the most interesting. While the study of Ezra A. Arevalo of 6-A in 2017-2018 entitled, “The Influence of Interest on Career Choice Among Sixth Graders” is engaging. Last school year, 2018-2019, many agreed that Precious A. Maravilla of 6-A’s study entitled, “Project-Based Learning: Experiences and Realizations” is really interesting and relevant.
Both their advisers and parents have shown pride for the research skills these young Rizalians have displayed. The young researchers have learned to appreciate the interest and value of doing a research. It also developed their independent critical thinking skills along with oral and written communication.
