This research uses a case study method. A case study is an empirical investigation that investigates a phenomenon in the context of real life. There are four aspects of creativity. First, creativity is defined as a force within the individual. Second, creativity is managing information and using skills and imagination to do or create something. Third, creativity produces something new or a work of art. Fourth, creativity is a product that is produced, for example, ideas, written works, or products. In this case, creativity shows students' ability to develop ideas about HIV and AIDS in poster form and complete posters on time. Poster-making is an assignment that will foster student creativity. In making posters, students will determine essential things about the material included in the poster. Therefore, using the Project-Based Learning (PjBL) model in the assignment to make posters in class X Science at one of the senior high schools in Serang City can initiate student creativity.</em></p> 2024-04-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Indonesian Journal of Biology Education Bioentrepreneurship Learning Implementation: Analysis of Students' Critical Thinking Skills 2024-03-28T02:23:57+00:00 Nur Hayati Lina Arifah Fitriyah Andri Wahyu Wijayadi Oktaffi Arinna Manasikana Noer Af’idah <p><em>Critical thinking skills are needed by students to solve problems in real life, such as environmental problems related to waste in the environment around students.

Scientific communication skills are critical skills students need. The use of Pictorial Riddle method is a technique, way or effort made in learning to inform scientific facts for students through images, for example presented in the form of posters, pictures on the blackboard, or projections contained in object transparencies. This study aims to explore how the use of Pictorial Riddle learning method can improve students' scientific communication skills and at the same time arouse their interest in science learning. The method used in this research is a case study, using a sample of 57 students of class XI MIPA selected by random sampling technique. The results showed that the Pictorial Riddle learning method has a good effect on students' interest in science learning where students get learning equipped with pictures on the learner worksheet to be analyzed by students. The Pictorial Riddle approach opens space for student creativity, increases active participation, and strengthens understanding of scientific concepts. This can be the basis for innovative learning approaches, namely with a group learning system to develop scientific communication skills and increase student interest in science learning</em></p> 2024-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Indonesian Journal of Biology Education Correlation Between Learning Outcomes and Students' Science Process Skills in Class X Biology Material at SMA Negeri 9 North Luwu 2024-03-28T04:43:44+00:00 Dewi Kusumawati Nurhayati Hartati <p><em>This research aims to determine the relationship between learning outcomes and students' science process skills in class X biology material at SMA Negeri 9 North Luwu.
