Students will have a more engaging classroom experience aboard the Science Explorer as Emerson Philippines donated laptops to the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI), the agency behind the country’s first mobile science learning facility.
Since its inception in 2010, the Science Explorer bus has served more than 32,000 students from over 100 municipalities all over the country. Inside the mobile lab, top young scientists and engineers teach specialized science and technology modules to elementary and high school students, mostly from public schools in far-flung areas in the Philippines.

The best science and technology projects are ones that can truly uplift communities. This is the idea behind the 3rd imake.wemake, an innovative technology project competition for senior high school students.
Organized by the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) in partnership with leading educational materials publisher and distributor C&E Publishing, Inc., the competition seeks to unleash the creativity of young Filipinos in innovation using accessible technologies.
Students will get the opportunity to pitch, build, and present their science and technology projects that cater to important societal and community issues. This year, participants will use the Arduino CTC 101 kit to build their projects.
DOST-SEI Director Dr. Josette Biyo said that the project aims to improve the students’ engineering and technical proficiencies, as well as develop their communication, critical and analytical thinking skills.

STEM in Motion. NuLab mobile science learning facility joins the festivities of the 2019 National Science and Technology Week (NSTW) at the World Trade Center in Pasay City for its initial run.
Senior high school students can get a glimpse of the emerging science careers in “nuLab”, the new mobile science learning facility of the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI).
This is DOST-SEI’s second science bus for Filipino learners, following the success of the Science Explorer, which has served around 32,000 elementary and high school students in more than 100 municipalities all over the country since 2010.
While the Science Explorer mostly caters to younger students, nuLab is primarily intended for senior high school students.
