Welcome To CHEMPOP!

Face to Face classes commence from Saturday, September 24th 2022!

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.

​​​​​​​

Every student receives a customized learning kit!

 

What's inside the kit?

  • one workbook
  • stationery 
  • safety goggles
  • safety gloves
  • activity mats & educational materials

 

What else is in store?

          

       Face-to-face taught sessions & Lab sessions, virtual simulations and access to the google classroom for posted notes and activitites.

 

This programme is engaging and offers students learning opportunities

and access to modalities that are not avaialble to them in the school setting. Students will engage in virtual simulations, conduct experiments in the lab and utilize learning tools and materials that will enhance the learning experience! We will be hosting face-to-face classes at Harrison College.

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.
