With a great crowd cheering behind them, Palawan State University (PSU) Laboratory High School hit the bull’s eye to gain a ticket to represent the Philippines to the Asia Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF) Water Rocket Competition in Japan this on November 29-30, 2014.
Beating 19 other teams from Palawan, Pampanga, Cebu and Iloilo, the tandem of Nur Alan Pavlo Barte and Reniel Rosaceña, with coach McArthur Maravilla, hit the target’s center and be the first Palawan school to be the Philippine contingent to the APRSAF.
“The whole experience is awesome. We didn’t expect to win and we didn’t expect that we’ll be going to Tokyo to represent the country,” said the duo who also brought home P10,000 cash prize.
