SMAN 1 Cigombong, July 5th, 2022
Due to the pandemic, most science teachers have never had the chance to use their science kits. Therefore refresher training is needed especially for new teachers or new kits. This effort is made to optimize the function of the existing physics laboratory. The activity was carried out in two stages, namely visitation to the laboratory and training for physics teachers. There are at least three school delegates participating, namely MAN 1 Cigombong, SMAN 1 Cijeruk, and SMAN 1 Caringin. The team led by Dr. Heriyanto Syafutra
