Important technologies developed by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and its attached agencies, as well as its partners, will be displayed during the 2018 National Science and Technology Week which will be held on July 17-21 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. Sec. Fortunato T. de la Peña will lead the celebration..
Held annually every third week of July, the NSTW highlights how science, technology, and innovation (STI) play a major part in achieving national development. The exhibit for this year will simulate an ecosystem of how STI work together for the progress of the community.
The technologies will be displayed for the first time via interactive exhibits in four clusters, namely: STI at Home, STI in School, STI in the Workplace and STI in the Marketplace.
Aside from the main exhibit, forums will be conducted at the mezzanine area of the World Trade Center. The forums will include presentations on the Small Enterp;rise Technlogy Upgrading Program (SETUP) and Community Empowerment through Science and Technology (CEST).
After the event, a series of regional science and technology fairs will be held in every region in the country until December. For complete schedule, visit www.nstw.dost.gov.ph.
