Traveling science centrum now in Dumaguete
Dumaguete City (27 October) -- The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in cooperation with The Philippine Foundation for Science and Technology (PFST) and the Confederation of Scientific and Professional Organizations (COSPO) invites everyone to visit the Traveling Science Exhibit dubbed "Science on the Move" now stage at the Ground Floor of the Negros Oriental Convention Center in Dumaguete City. The exhibition was opened on October 26, 2009 and will run through November 28, 2009.
The Science on the Move is an interactive travelling science exhibit in the country that unfolds a new exciting process of science-learning system through the use of participatory, interactive and hands-on exhibits, and educational programs.
It would be very expensive to bring the exhibits in the province, so the organizers are inviting viewers to go to Dumaguete to experience the self-discovery Science Museum. This is a rare opportunity for school children, teachers, administrators and parents to have first-hand experience of fun and discovery of the amazing world of science in an atmosphere of fun, excitement and entertainment.
The organizers believe that exposing the youth to interactive exhibits can inspire their curiosity in science and some concept works. This could help spark their curiosity to study science more and in the long run, help freshen up the local talent pool of scientists that will make our country more competitive. The exhibit is strongly supported by the Department of Education (DepEd). (PIA) [top]
