The implementation of Student Creativity Program activities in community service (PKM-M) by Banyuwangi PSDKU students is done at SMPLB Negeri Banyuwangi starting from March 16, 2017. This activity is held every Saturday. The method of devotion used is using aquascape as a teaching medium. It is often found that children with special needs (ABK) have traits that tend to be individualized and communication is constrained. “With Aquascape Care program is expected to improve communication among students and also improve their creativity” said Alvin Avia Aprilliana one of PKM-M Participant students funded by Kemenristek DIKTI. Students at SMPLB Negeri Banyuwangi consist of blind, deaf, disabled and gray.
Some work programs that have been implemented, first is the socialization as well as learning cutting and glazing using the tools and materials we have provided. We use video as a medium, so that children are easy to understand the material being submitted. The next activity is the formation of groups and each group makes the aquarium by accompanied by one student each group. The results of the children’s creativity are then plastered with their names and stored for future activities.
Every activity that has been done, we always provide both pre test and post test as an indicator of the success of our activities. The next program will be held the formation of cadres, the procurement of exhibitions for students of SMPB Negeri Banyuwangi in collaboration with the Department of Tourism and Government of Banyuwangi Regency. “In addition, we also aim to publish our PKM-M in RADAR BANYUWANGI newspaper and publication on Radio Mandala Banyuwangi” said M.Reynaldy Thoriq Al Islam as chairman of PKM-M
