Laboratories are very important in primary and secondary educational levels. Laboratories with practical activities can help students understand the concepts they have learned in class so as to increase their learning interest in science. One of the competencies in the learning process is the ability of students to solve problems in their life. This can be achieved with the help of laboratories and teaching aids available at the school. The psychomotor abilities of students will be honed in solving problems related to science concepts. Community service activities are carried out by several methods, the initial survey of partner problems, designing teaching aids and practicum equipment, simple practicum in the laboratory and making a practical guidebook.
