Launched Today: Research Fair 2018

The 2018 Edition of the Research Fair has been launched today at the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City. Organized by the University of the Philippines Academic League of Chemical Engineering Students (UP ALCHEMES), the Research Fair is annually held that aims to showcase the ingenuity and creativity of the Filipino Youth.

Research Fair 2018 is open to all high school students nationwide with this year’s theme “SYNAPSE: Connecting the Filipino Youth through Scientific Pursuits.” 

The 2018 Research Fair will have participants that will engage in the competition between minds via the National Science Conquest and also learn from researchers and mentors in the Youth Science Convention. 

Acknowledging that today’s youth will be the future nation builders, the Research Fair will immerse the student/participants in the culture of science and technology which will result in further enhancing and developing their scientific abilities. This will be complemented by the participation of scientists in researchers so as to serve as mentors to aid in their scientific skills development. The exchange of ideas between the students is an integral part of the fair.

There will be three segments in the 3 – day fair that will start January 25 up to January 27, 2018.   

These are:

1. Research Competition
2. National Science Conquest
3. Youth Science Convention

The UP ALCHEMES endeavors to harness the potential of the country’s youth’s brightest minds and do its part in ensuring that the Philippines will have a bright future in science and technology.

Science and Technology are expected to lead Philippine development in this 21st Century. These skills and knowledge will be needed in national efforts to increase and develop productivity in all sectors of manufacturing, energy, health, education, and agriculture.

Another dimension to the youth being adept in the use of science and technology is that it is a springboard towards establishing more technology-driven startups in the Philippine economy.

A sizable base in the population composed of scientists and technologically skilled workers will spell the difference in attaining national progress.
