We present the results of a strategy for integrating Statistics, Information Technology and Makabayan at the Pedro Guevara Memorial National High School, Santa Cruz, Laguna.

Students were divided into groups of five. Each group was required to research on a problem commonly experienced by students. The groups identified their problems with the help of the guidance councilor who introduced the "Problem Wall" to enhance the students' awareness of the problems affecting them.

Each group then constructed a questionnaire and administered it to their chosen group of respondents. They collected the data, presented it in tabular and graphical form, and computed for frequency and percentage statistics using MS Excel.

The final group results were presented by the students in the form of a newsletter and website.
