A student is amazed with what he sees under the microscope during the session in marine microscopy in the 2017 Climate Science Boot Camp held in eight schools in Dumaguete and Siquijor.
Summer just got ‘cooler’ for eight high schools in Dumaguete and Siquijor Island.
This, as the Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) with scientists from the University of the Philippines Marine Science Institute (UP MSI) and the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (DOST-PAGASA) simultaneously conducted the 2017 Climate Science Boot Camp on 17 to 20 April in the areas.
It followed the theme “Oceans and Climate Towards a Resilient Planet” and highlighted the role of the youth in building resilient communities in the midst of the issue on global warming.

One is a smart hydropower generator device that aims to lessen their school’s electric bill. Another is a cost-effective tool violations to help address a local road issue. And the other is a water level rise alert system that seeks to reinforce disaster mitigation and warning system protocols in a Yolanda-struck community.
What’s common in these three technologies?
These are no products of expert scientists or engineers—at least not yet—but of young high school students from Makati, Bataan, and Leyte.
These brilliant students also happen to be the first-ever recipients of the Youth Innovation Prize in the recently concluded imake.wemake: create. innovate. collaborate. of the Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI).
