The third week of July of every year is National Science and Technology Week (NSTW), as mandated through the Presidential Proclamation 169 of 1993.
In the past 2 years, we joined NSTW activities at the SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. This year, several simultaneous celebrations are conducted throughout the country. In Davao, the NSTW celebration runs from July 25 to 27, 2016 at the NCCC Mall Davao Activity Area. This is organized by the Department of Science and Technology Region XI (DOST XI), in partnership with the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI).
NSTW is organized to “bring science and technology closer to the people” as well as “to recognize the roles and contributions of various personalities in the field of science and technology.”
The event carries the theme “Juan Science, One Nation,” which is really a catchy phrase to highlight the science and technology programs and services by and for the Filipinos, implemented under the DOST System.
To learn more about DOST XI’s projects and programs, check out the booths during the NSTW 2016 at the NCCC Mall Activity Area from July 25 to 27, 2016.
