Zui Andrei Dominic Go, Alyssa Bianca Dutaro, Adam Scott Gemenez, and Haskel Gerard Nalasa participated in the first invite-only Invent School hosted by Technology Application and Promotion Institute, Department of Science and Technology.
Considered as a starting ground among young Filipino inventors, Invent School provides opportunities for students to get in touch with their creative and inventive side, leading them to grow their natural ingenuities meant for generating maneuvers for future enterprises. Personnel from TAPI-DOST and the Philippine Science High School took turns giving lectures and workshops during the 2-day ISP seminar-workshop held at the Alfonso Y. Aboitiz Science Laboratory, T. Palma Gil Elementary School.
The event, held on June 13-14, 2019, invited 7 schools from Davao City to participate on the city's pioneering run, hoping to establish a strong foundation for future workshops.
The ISP aims to recognize the creative thinking capacity and inventiveness of students and assists them in prototype development and commercialization of their inventions. It also aims to encourage students to pursue science-related courses leading to a career that would make them professional inventors and scientists, and to provide knowledge on Intellectual Property Rights.
Through this partnership, DOST in its mandate provides central direction, leadership and coordination of scientific and technological efforts ensuring also that results there from are geared and utilized in areas of maximum economic and social benefits of the people.
