DOST to Lead the National Science & Technology Week Celebration

S&T enthusiasts are in for a treat this coming 17 to 21 July 2018 as the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) headed by Sec. Fortunato T. de la Peña leads the nation in celebrating the 2018 National Science and Technology Week (NSTW) at the World Trade Center (Halls A-C) in Pasay City.

Held annually, the NSTW highlights how science, technology, and innovation (STI) play a major part in achieving national development.

This year’s NSTW will carry the theme “Science for the People: Innovation for Collective Prosperity.”

The exhibit for this year will simulate an ecosystem of how STI work together for the progress of a community. Technologies developed by the DOST and its attached agencies, as well as its partners, will be displayed for the first time via interactive displays in four clusters namely: STI at Home, STI in School, STI in the Workplace and STI in the Marketplace.

Guests are encouraged to participate in games and raffles for some prizes and tokens.

Aside from the main exhibit, forums will be conducted at the mezzanine area of the Center. To be held at the main stage are forums on the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) and Community Empowerment through Science and Technology (CEST).

There will also be activities lined up on the side such as film showing, scientific career talks, science journalism writeshop, and others. Though the entrance to the NSTW is open, some of the events may require pre-registration or on a per-invitation-only basis.

The NSTW is celebrated every third week of July through Proclamation No. 169 of 1993. It aims to recognize the contribution of science and technology in the development of the country and garner support from the public and private institutions for its sustainable development.

After the event, a series of regional science and technology fairs will also be held in every region in the country until December. For complete schedule, please visit www. nstw.dost.gov.ph.

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is the premier science and technology body in the country charged with the twin mandate of providing central direction, leadership, and coordination of all scientific and technological activities, and of formulating policies, programs and projects to support national development.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thank you!

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog
    that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue
    is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

    I am very happy I found this in my search for something relating to this.
