The Department of Science and Technology - IX invites students, researchers, inventors, professionals and the general public to take part in the 2015 Regional Invention Contests and Exhibits (RICE) on September 17-19, at Centro Latino, Paseo del Mar, Zamboanga City.   Admission is free.

With the theme “Philippines: A Science Nation Innovating and Inventing for Global Competitiveness”, this year's RICE promises to showcase the latest scientific and technological innovations, brought about by this region's best and brightest.

A total of 90 entries will be on display, each created to contribute and provide significant advancements to their respective fields. Various research projects, prototypes, industrial designs and software applications are but a few of what the public can expect in this year's RICE.

Esteemed guests from the DOST- Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI), Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Department of Education (DepEd) are expected to grace the occasion.

The conduct of RICE is pursuant to Republic Act No. 7459 known as the “Inventors and Inventions Incentives Act of the Philippines.” It is designed to encourage Filipino inventors, researchers, and students to use their inventive capability by competing for cash rewards and recognitions both locally and internationally.
