12 aspiring PH scientists off to Int’l Science & Engineering Fair
by PNA release

Twelve aspiring scientists from different high schools nationwide were honored recently as representatives of the Philippines at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).

ISEF, the largest pre-college science competition, which gathers top young scientific minds from across the globe to showcase their researches on the international stage, will run May 12 to 17 in Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A.

The 12 representatives are the winners of the 2019 National Science and Technology Fair led by the Department of Education last Feb. 18 to 22 in Tagaytay City.

They are John Eric Aggarao, Kathleen Chloie Antonio, Anna Beatriz Suavengco, Maria Isabel Lyson, Neil David Cayanan, Shaira Gozun, E’van Relle Tongol, Maryjoise Karla Buan, Alpha Acain, Lester Sabadao, Lia Denise Tan, and Nathaniel Reyes.

They are students of Taguig National High School, Iloilo National High School, Angeles City Science High School, Pangasinan National High School, and Quezon National High School.

The Gokongwei Brother Foundation (GBF) gave the students the first Gokongwei Brother Foundation Young Scientist Award, which is given to learners who have shown excellence in the field of Science and Technology, and in producing researches and projects which could improve the lives of the Filipinos or solve the country’s problems.

Apart from the award, the GBF shouldered all the trip’s expenses of the 12 students. It also announced that they will grant each student a scholarship in a Science, Technology, Mathematics, or Engineering (STEM) degree at their chosen universities.

“We at the GBF we’re inspired with the fact that the previous Philippine teams have won major awards despite being one of the smallest delegations. Sponsoring our young scientists in this competition can boost their confidence in the global standards of scientific research,” said GBF General Manager Lisa Gokongwei-Cheng.

She said that having representatives in such a prestigious competition is a testament to the Filipino youth’s exceptional ingenuity and potential in STEM.

Meanwhile, DepEd Asec. for Curriculum and Instruction Alma Ruby Torio said the department is proud of the representatives who will be part of the 1,800 high school participants from more than 80 countries.

“Last year, our team was able to bring home three major awards. For this team this year, congratulations on creating projects, products that will help solve the country’s challenges and improve the lives of others, and, I pray very hard that all your projects will receive positive evaluation at the competition,” she said.

Torio also advised the 12 students to meet other student-researchers at the competition and learn from their best practices and culture.

“Share with them also our unique culture and tell something about our interesting tourist destinations and the Filipino hospitality,” she added.
