Welcome To CHEMPOP

       CHEMPOP Virtual Summer Camp 2021 Monday, August 2nd - Friday August 27th 2021.​​​​​​​

What is CHEMPOP?

CHEMPOP is an educational platform specializing in the chemical sciences. The platform was developed out of a desire in contributing to the development and production of innovative, capable scientists into society.

 

We aim to not only foster a deep understanding of the theoretical concepts as it pertains to the chemical sciences, but an appreciation and competency in laboratory skills as well. A perfect blend of both is paramount in gaining a sound foundation of the chemical sciences; any science for that matter!

 

We will make it our mission to cater to the student’s needs in preparing them to excel academically and beyond the classroom setting.

Online Lessons For Remote Learning

 

 

 

We are gearing up to launch or 2nd Annual Summer Camp. We have made the cautious decision to host the camp virtually this year again. Laboratory kits will be distributed to your child to supplement instruction and add a fun and engaging element to the Summer Programme. 


We will cover select topics from the CSEC Chemistry Syllabus depending on the Year Level your child will be entering for the 2021-2022 Academic Year. We look forward to having you!

Frequently Asked Questions

 

 Where are you located?


        We are located in Barbados. However, due to the online format we can work with children from anywhere in the world if need be.


  What syllabus do you follow?


        We follow the CXC CSEC syllabus. However, if need be, we are versed in the syllabi utilized for other examination bodies.



  What are your classes like?


       Once your child has registered they are provided with an email address and gain access to the Google Classroom. We utilize information technology for                   remote learning  to engage the students. Our classes are fun and interactive. We also conduct laboratory experiments; the students are encouraged to                     demonstrate their understanding  of what is taking place and write-up their findings based on the experiments being conducted. During the summer, we                 distribute lab kits to every child allowing children  to  actively participate in the practical concepts being demonstrated.


       Children are also provided with workbooks and worksheets are uploaded to the classroom every week. This environment of continuous assessment leads to         meaningful learning and positive learning outcomes.


   What qualifications do you have?


       Ms.Peter has been teaching for approximately 5 years. She is currently a graduate teacher at Harrison College. She possesses a Bachelors Degree with                     Honours  in Biochemistry. Additionally, she is a final year Post-Graduate student at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus where she is pursuing           her Masters in Science Education.


      Dr.Peter has been an Educator for over 30 years. She possesses a PhD in Organic Chemistry. She started her career teaching chemistry at Harrison College.            Dr.   Peter has taught Chemistry at the Undergraduate and Graduate Levels at the UWI. She then went on to teach Chemistry at the Barbados Community                College  where she was the head of the Chemistry Department in the division of Natural Sciences.


      Together, this mother/daughter duo bring a perfect blend of passion, experience and innovation to their instructional delivery.

Tutors

 

Ms Yaisa Peter

 

Ms.Peter has a deep interest in the chemical and biological sciences and is the founder of CHEMPOP. She pursued her Undergraduate Degree in Biochemistry at the UWI Cave Hill Campus where she graduated with honours. Prior to graduating, she conducted a thesis project where she studied the prevalence of anti-biotic strains of bacteria in the gut flora of the Barbadian populace.

 

She developed a passion for teaching and assisting students to achieve their academical goals when she began her tenure in education at the Barbados Community College. Currently, she is a graduate teacher at Harrison College where she teaches chemistry from the 3rd form (8th Grade) to the Upper 6th (12th Grade).

 

She also has an interest in the arts and music. She has always believed that science and art go hand in hand and was not surprised when the acronym STEM was amended to STEAM to include art as a key player in the development of a pursuant aiming to chart a career path in the sciences.

Dr Sonia Peter

 

Dr Sonia Peter has been involved in Chemical Education for 30+years. She brings an innovative philosophy to the teaching of chemical principles and concepts that draws on varied pedagogical methods.  In her opinion 'Students of chemistry must connect with the chemical language and immediately see it's relevance to everyday living in order to appreciate the value of the embodied knowledge'. Dr Peter believes that students must be challenged by promoting creativity and innovation in subject delivery and activities. Chemistry happens in our bodies, in the home, in our gardens and this she considers to be her blackboard.

 

She is the former head of the Department of Chemistry at the Barbados Community College and was instrumental in curriculum development within both the Chemistry and  Environmental Science majors. She implemented many innovative projects for skills development including critical thinking, research and oral presentations. In her research capacity she had discovered 13 novel compounds from the local medicinal plant Horsenicker (Caesalpinia bonducella) and a number of flavonoids from local plants used for colds and flu. She is currently Director of the Biocultiral Education and Research Programme, Heritage Teas Barbados and Bioscience Barbados Ltd.
