Applying innovation in science education

The InnoBox project aims to encourage teachers to be innovative, creative, and practical in teaching science concepts. The ultimate objective is to improve students’ overall performance and interest in the subject. Filipino teachers who are currently teaching science may submit an entry under any of these three search categories: Grades 3-6, Grades 7-10, and Grades 11-12.

The proponent may be either a science teacher or a team led by a principal proponent who is a science teacher. The DOST encourages collaboration with students in conceptualizing the proposed innovative learning materials. The learning resources must not have been awarded or given any kind of special recognition in previous competitions.

Proposals may be submitted to DOST-SEI via email at
