THE DEPARTMENT of Science and Technology’s Science Education Institute signed a Memorandum of Agreement with its educational partners to reaffirm its commitment in promoting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The initiative was a reminder that despite the unusual circumstances brought by the Covid19 pandemic, these agencies have overcome challenges and still pushed through.

“While Filipinos will always be known for our resiliency, it’s time that we thrived beyond that,” 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.

The agency, he said, hopes to continue inspiring the youth to pursue STEM careers “by showing them that they have the capability to win against all odds in international competitions.”

Biyo presided over the signing ceremony that was attended by long-time partners such as the National Olympiad in Informatics Philippines; Asian MathSci League Inc.; Felta Multi-Media Inc.; Mathematics Trainers’ Guild Philippines; Philippine Foundation for Science and Technology; Philippine Association for the Advancement of Science and Technology; Philippine Meterological Society Inc.; Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs Inc.; and Mathematical Society of the Philippines.
