DOST, NSTW, regional

This year, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) has worked diligently in promoting science and technology in the Philippines. DOST led the charge in organizing and executing science and technology events all over the country, including July’s National Science and Technology Week (NSTW).

Far from losing momentum, though, the science-centric agency continues to raise awareness and interest in the sciences. And this time, it’s shining the spotlight on scientific brilliance across the regions by allowing them to take center stage.

The Regional Science and Technology Fair and Exhibits 2018 is part of the nationwide Regional Science and Technology Week (RSTW) festivities. The event will take place from September 26 to 29 at the Universidad de Manila. The four-day event will feature techno-bazaars, guided tours, forums, exhibits, and activities related to Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM).

This science showcase is a collaborative effort between the PAMAMAZON (Pasay, Makati, Manila, Quezon City) NCR cluster and the local government of Manila.

The final schedule of activities for the Regional Science and Technology Fair and Exhibits 2018 is up on the official DOST-NCR Facebook page:
