Photo shows the winners of the poster making contest and the Best Project awards during the recent 2nd Philippine International Science Fair by the Department of Science and Technology - Philippine Science High School System (DOST-PSHS). The fair was participated by high school students from Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Korea, Singapore, Sweden and the Philippines who had the chance to be mentored by top Filipino scientists. Selected as Best Projects were “Taal Lakers”, a solution for effective management of Taal Lake; “Sphyder” for faster, efficient and cheaper removal of garbage in bodies of water; and “Maximizing Efficiency of Water Usage”, an innovation to enhance crop production at a permaculture farming site in Nueva Ecija. The fair serves as a ramp-up to DOST’s National Science and Technology Week on July 24-28 at SMX Convention Center where students will display their robot inventions to the general public.
