In its bid to showcase different programs and projects implemented, the DOST IX is geared towards providing fast and reliable science and technology services to the people in the Region. Thus one of the major activities during this event is the “Technical Session on DOST’s Major Programs and Projects”, which will present the top programs and services of the DOST during the 2017 National Science and Technology Week (NSTW) Regional Celebration and the Regional Invention Contest and Exhibit (RICE) on 23 November 2017 at 1:00PM, Palacio del Sur, Marcial Garden Hotel, Zamboanga City.

Among the DOST’s top technologies and services which will be presented, include the DOST’s flagship program, the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP), which encourages and assists Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to adopt technology innovations to improve their operations and thus boost their productivity and competitiveness; One Expert, which is an online “interactive nationwide pool of science and technology experts intended to provide technical advice and consultancy services to Filipinos anywhere in the Philippines”; One Store -  the first government e-commerce platform developed to promote and market local goods produced by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) assisted local entrepreneurs through its banner program, Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP). Aside from these, the One Lab Program, will also be featured. This program facilitates customers, enterprises, and industries access to specific DOST lab services anywhere in the country; while the Community Empowerment thru Science and Technology-Upscaling for Progress (CEST-UP), which provides assistance to the poorest of the poor communities in the country through Science and Technology.

In its endeavor to protect Filipino inventors and researchers on their rights over their creations and researches, the DOST IX scheduled a “Forum on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Protection” during the 2017 National Science and Technology Week (NSTW) Regional Celebration and the Regional Invention Contest and Exhibit (RICE) on 22 November, 2017 at Palacio del Sur, Marcial Garden Hotel, Zamboanga City.

This forum targets to reach out around 60 inventors, creative researchers, student researchers and research advisers within the region.  Among the topics that will be talked about include Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Process of IPR Registration at IPOPHIL and DOST programs and Assistance Relative to Invention and Research Development.

The DOST IX invited speakers from Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHIL) and Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI) to provide participants better understanding on the topic and give them the avenue to address their questions and queries directly to the concerned office.

It is expected that after attending this forum, participants will have a clearer and better understanding on their intellectual rights and the programs and services they can avail from the DOST and its service agencies.

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST IX) opens the doors of the 2017 National Science and Technology (S&T) Week Regional Celebration back-to-back with the Regional Invention Contest and Exhibits (RICE) to the public on 22-24 November 2017 at the Palacio del Sur in Zamboanga City.

DOST-IX’s top official Mr. Martin A. Wee says that this event, while promoting DOST’s programs and services, is also targeted at bridging the gap between the world of scientists and research buffs to the reach of every Juan across the country.

True to its goal of bridging the world of sciences to the Filipino communities, this year’s theme “Science for the People”, will feature the department-developed technologies and inventions. Also to be featured are the DOST assisted food and non-food products as well as the different programs and services and interactive exhibits.

The Department of Science and Technology IX (DOST IX) and the National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) Philippines had recently conducted a series of research writing training-workshops in Mibang Hotel, Dipolog City last October 27-28, 2016.

The series was composed of two training-workshops; the first trained participants in Writing and Presenting Research Proposals, whereas the second focused on Enhancing the Research / Thesis Writing Capabilities of Special Science School Teachers.

As with the recently conducted NAST events in Dipolog last September, both workshops heavily emphasized the importance of research - this time, focusing on its more technical aspects, and on how to streamline collected data for better presentation.

The Katilingban para sa Kalambuan Org. Inc., a non-stock, non-profit organization directed at helping poor and marginalized communities, recently partnered up with The Department of Science and Technology IX (DOST IX) to raise their game against the deadly Dengue virus.

For each week in October, DOST IX visited a different Katilingban community to distribute the Ovicidal Larvicidal Trap or OL Trap: a three-piece kit containing a black cup, a lawanit paddle, and pellets, designed and developed by the DOST-Industrial Technology and Development Institute (DOST-ITDI) to fight dengue by attacking the dengue vector's ability to propagate.

11

A total of around 500 households across 4 Katilingban communities - namely the homeowners associations of "Katilingban", "Kalinaw", "Kalambuan" and "Kinaiyahan" - were oriented and trained in the use of the trap; each of the households received 2 kits, and a year's supply of lawanit paddles and pellets.

Aside from the OL Traps, DOST IX introduced the communities to a different form of anti-dengue technology - one that they could make themselves.

22

Using only a plastic bottle, some tape, sugar, yeast, and hot water, the Katilingban communities learned to create a alternative mosquito trapping tool - one that when used in tandem with the OL Trap, ups the ante against dengue even more.

The residents were reminded, however, that these technologies are but tools meant to aid in the fight against the virus. Ultimately, the best and proven way to win the war is by maintaining a clean environment, thus making sure that no place becomes a potential breeding ground for the mosquitoes.

The Best Reason to Introduce Your Child to the World of Robotics

An amalgamation of Science and Engineering, Robotics is an emerging field of technology with limitless potential. It has extensive applications encompassing numerous areas like space and underwater exploration, manufacturing, medicine, and agriculture - just to name a few.

Access to knowledge in the field, however, does not come as easily in our country as it would in others. Thankfully, the Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs (PSYSC) will be conducting the 2016 National Children’s Science Interactive Workshop (NCSIW 2016) on December 17-20 in Bataan.

This year, the event will focus on understanding the fundamental concepts, breakthroughs, and current trends in the field of Robotics.

With the theme “Techno-surge: Rebooting the Syndroid System”, the NCSIW aims to promote research and development among elementary students by exposing them to robotics being a field of study and a possible career path. Workshops, exposure trips and a plethora of fun-filled educational activities are but a few of what your child can expect.
