DOST scholars gear up to become the next lodis of information technology (IT).
Through the project League of Developers Initiative (LODI), an undertaking of two Department of Science and Technology (DOST) offices: the Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) and the Planning and Evaluation Service (DOST-PES), DOST scholars taking up IT courses can soon avail government internship opportunities.
The Department claims a ‘win-win’ arrangement over this. The internship program vows to provide scholars with exceptional IT internship experience and, at the same time, amplify DOST’s digital transformation efforts.

After a pandemic-forced hiatus, the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) restarts nuLab, a mobile science laboratory for senior high school students. For its first road trip, it sailed to northern Iloilo to bring the nuLab brand of hands-on science activities facilitated by some of the country’s top scientists.
“May lighter side din pala ang science,” says senior high student Kent Venturanza after attending a session aboard nuLab, a mobile science bus of the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI). The session, titled “Mathsaya,” was facilitated by Dr. Jomar Rabajante, Dean of the University of the Philippines Los Banos Graduate Studies, and Dr. Ariel Babierra, a professor from the same university.
