The Department of Science and Technology, in partnership with the DOST-Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI), conducted a virtual webinar entitled “Invent School Program” (ISP) for students from the Flora National High School (FNHS) in Apayao on Sept. 27 to 28.

The ISP served as a platform to stimulate the creativity and innovativeness of 45 participants composed of grade 7 to 12 high school students; and promote awareness on creativity, creative thinking skills, invention development, and intellectual property rights.

“This program is the right step towards the goal of inculcating creativity and inventiveness into the minds of the youth, who are the future of this country,” said DOST Regional Director Nancy A. Bantog in a virtual message.

Bantog said the inclusive engagement of the youth in S&T activities such as the ISP is part of the department’s tagline “Science for the people.”

“This is an encouragement for these students to do their very best in their journey towards being champions of S&T at the same time catalyst of change in the future,” she said.– Press release
