This research uses a non-experimental correlational quantitative approach. The population of this research was students of class XI IPA MAN 3 Jember, totaling 169 respondents. The samples taken were 118 respondents using the Simple Random Sampling technique. The data collection instruments used were tests on the variable understanding of the excretory system material and questionnaires with a Likert scale on the behavioral variable of maintaining a healthy life. Data analysis uses the product moment correlation test. Based on research data analysis, it shows that students' understanding of the excretory system material is categorized as moderate with a percentage of 84% and an average score of 12,3. Meanwhile, the behavior of maintaining a healthy life is in the medium category with a percentage of 59% and an average score of 27,5. The results of the product moment correlation analysis show that there is no relationship between understanding the excretory system material and the behavior of maintaining a healthy life in class XI Science students at MAN 3 Jember. The obtained significance value of 0.442 &gt; 0.05, which means that Ha is rejected and H0 is accepted.</p> 2023-12-06T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education The Effect of Variations in the Water-to-Coffee-Powder Ratio on the Water Content and Caffeine Content of Sigarar Utang Instant Arabica Coffee 2023-11-23T07:51:02+07:00 Ananta Mulia Alfatah Nasution Ngatirah Herawati Oktavianty Nanda Eska Anugrah Nasution <p>The Sigarar Utang Arabica coffee is a varietal of Arabica coffee that originated from the North Tapanuli region of the North Sumatra province. The purpose of this study is to see how variations in water-to-coffee powder ratios affect water content and caffeine content of Sigarar Utang Arabica instant coffee. This study's research design is a complete block design (CBD). Experiments were carried out at 95°C with three levels of coffee powder-to-water ratio: N1 (1:4)%, N2 (1:6)%, and N3 (1:8)%. Each treatment was repeated twice, for a total of six experimental units. According to the findings of this study, variations in the water-to-coffee powder ratio in Sigarar Utang coffee had a substantial impact on both moisture content and caffeine content.</p> 2023-12-07T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education Empowerment of Educational Tourism Pakusari Final Waste Disposal Site, Kertosari Sub-District, Pakusari, Jember District 2023-11-10T01:22:15+07:00 Nanda Rizki Safitri Siska Dwi Santika Madinatul Munawwaroh <p>The study focuses on the empowerment of Pakusari TPA educational tourism in Jember Regency, Indonesia. Waste management is a pressing issue worldwide, and the waste reduction process plays a crucial role in minimizing the amount of waste reaching the final disposal site. The research adopts a qualitative approach, utilizing survey techniques, interviews, field observations, and literature reviews to gather data. The findings reveal that the establishment of the Pakusari TPA educational tour was prompted by the increasing amount of waste and the need to educate the public about waste processing. The tour location, adjacent to the landfill, showcases creative waste conversions, such as statues made from discarded materials. Interviews with the TPA management indicate positive responses from local residents, schools sending students for educational visits, and a reduction in daily waste volume. The Pakusari TPA serves as an educational tourist attraction, promoting waste management practices and recycling initiatives. Through recycling, organic waste is converted into methane gas and animal feed, while inorganic waste is repurposed for pavement and artistic displays. Overall, the study highlights the benefits of the Pakusari TPA educational tourism in raising awareness, inspiring waste reduction, and fostering environmental preservation.</p> 2023-12-06T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education Analysis of Biology Learning Planning on Plant Tissue Course in the Independent Learning Activity Unit (UKBM) based on Scientific Approach Class XI MIPA 5 at MAN Sumenep 2023-11-13T13:15:10+07:00 Suci Romdaniyah Nanda Eska Anugrah Nasution Chairany Rizka <p>This article presents a study conducted at MAN Sumenep, the only State Madrasah Aliyah in Sumenep Regency that has implemented the Semester Credit System (SKS) and the Usage of Scientific Approach (UKBM) program.

The findings reveal that MAN Sumenep follows a well-structured planning process for biology learning, including the preparation of syllabus, annual and semester programs, effective week plans, and lesson plans integrated with UKBM content. Special training sessions are conducted for teachers to develop UKBM, and resource persons are invited from the Ministry of Religion's Pusdiklat. The evaluation and review of UKBM are carried out regularly, and revisions are made if necessary. Overall, the article highlights the effective implementation of UKBM in MAN Sumenep, which can serve as a valuable model for other schools.</p> 2023-12-06T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education Analysis of Ecotourism Development Potential in Paseban Savana Jember, East Java 2023-11-13T13:13:53+07:00 M. Amir Fauzi Muhammad Ichsan Eko Saputra M. Najib Indallah <p>Savanna is a low-rainfall ecosystems. This habitat is frequently dominated by lush green grass. There is a savanna in Paseban Village, Kencong District, Jember Regency that is notable for nature tourism since it has an appealing and natural sense. The purpose of this study is to investigate the potential for ecotourism development in Paseban Savana, Jember, East Java. This study is qualitative in design. Interviews were utilized to acquire data. Locals and visitors are the source of information. This approach is designed to collect data on the many types of savanna utilization that are currently in use. In addition to interviews, this study included the documentation approach. The investigation discovered that this area was previously restricted to territory that was barren and parched, but that heavy continuous rain eventually turned this land green. Because of the natural splendor of the green savanna, an increasing number of visitors visit. Tourists typically visit to snap photographs. However, as the number of tourists increases, so does the garbage problem. Given that this savanna has recently grown increasingly busy with tourists, there is no management in place to enforce cleanliness and other rules. We suggest appointing management, providing trash cans, and shielding plant-containing areas from harm caused by visitors.</p> 2023-12-06T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education The Effect of Biocard Learning Media on Students' Understanding of Concepts Related to the Human Reproductive System in the 11th Grade Science Class at SMA Diponegoro Panti Jember during the Academic Year 2022/2023 2023-11-28T17:27:06+07:00 Ahmad Humaidi Kamil Risma Nurlim Idiawati Nurlim <p>The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of using Biocard Media on students' competence in comprehending the material regarding to the Human Reproductive System.
