FROM math Olympiads to robotics competitions, Filipino students have made their mark in the international arena thanks to the Department of Science and Technology’s Science Education Institute and its educational partners.

The Institute and its partners recently reaffirmed their commitment to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics through a memorandum of agreement signed on April 14, 2021.

“While Filipinos will always be known for our resiliency, it’s time that we thrived beyond that,” DOST-SEI Director Josette Biyo said.

“We are thankful to our partners for helping us and our Filipino youth to grow into something bigger and brighter, through STEM,” he added.

Biyo led the signing ceremony that was attended by the National Olympiad in Informatics, Philippines; Asian MathSci League, Inc.; FELTA Multi-Media, Inc.; Mathematics Trainers’ Guild, Philippines; the Philippine Foundation for Science and Technology; the Philippine Association for the Advancement of Science and Technology; the Philippine Meterological Society, Inc.; the Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs, Inc.; and the Mathematical Society of the Philippines.

“Though the Covid19 pandemic has changed the educational landscape around the world, we look forward to continue to inspire our youth to pursue STEM careers by showing them that they have the capability to win against all odds in international competitions,” Biyo said.
