Student delegates from the Philippines and their mentors (above) proudly wave small Philippine flags during the opening ceremony of the 2nd Philippine International Science Fair (PISF) staged by the Department of Science and Technology - Philippine Science High School System (DOST-PSHS) in partnership with the First Pacific Leadership Academy. The local delegation is composed of students and teachers from the PSHS campuses and other science schools in the country. Delegates from Sweden (below), Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore are also participating in the biennial fair in Antipolo City. With the theme “Innovate to Mitigate”, the PISF tackles environment and climate change issues via workshops, study tour, teacher’s forum, and prototyping sessions with experts. The PISF serves as a ramp-up to DOST’s National Science and Technology Week at SMX Convention Center from July 24-28, 2015 where PSHS will hold a robotics / interactive science exhibit by students.
