Partnership sealed. Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) signed a partnership deal with the Gokongwei Brothers Foundation (GBF) for the 4th imake.wemake project via a virtual ceremony held on July 30. In the photo are GBF Executive Director, Grace Colet; GBF Program Head, Graciela Mendoza; SEI Director, Dr. Josette Biyo; and SEI Division Chief, Dr. Ruby Cristobal.
The imake.wemake: create. innovate. collaborate. competition had hailed nine—soon to be 12—Youth Innovation Prize (YIP) Awardees out of around 200 promising idea pitches since 2016. But for folks at the Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI), the competition is still bound to get bigger and better.
That is because of the entry of Gokongwei Brothers Foundation (GBF) as partner for the youth competition, which DOST-SEI describes as a “rightful collaboration” given the two parties’ common goals.
