Committed to the promotion of science and technology to the public, the Philippine Science Heritage Center brought the Meet Your Scientist program in Raises Academy, Angono, Rizal on February 06, 2015. More than 200 students and teachers attended the discussion about the different careers in science— physics and photonics, mathematics, and environmental science.
The experts who shared their experiences in their chosen field were Outstanding Young Scientists, Dr. Raphael Guerrero, professor at the Department of Physics, Ateneo de Manila University; Engr. Glenn Banaguas, professor at the De La Salle Araneta University; and Dr. Richard Lemence, professor at the Institute of Mathematics, University of the Philippines Diliman.
Also present to discuss the different scholarships DOST offers to students who would like to take a degree related to science and technology is Ms. Daisy Demoni, supervising science research specialist at DOST Science Education Institute.
PSHC will be holding monthly Meet Your Scientist this year. With this activity, the Academy hopes to help discover and unleash the science in the younger generations.
The PSHC is being managed and maintained by the National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST Philippines) as mandated by RA 9107. NAST Philippines is the country’s recognition and advisory body on matters related to science.
