Get Ready to #AGRInnovate as we Explore the Wonders of Agriculture
The Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs (PSYSC), the largest umbrella organization of science clubs in the Philippines, proudly presents the National Science Club Month (NSCM 2016) with the theme, “AGRInnovate: Revolutionizing Agricultural Outlook for Sustainable Growth”.
This 2016, NSCM aims to introduce students to Agriculture. For a predominantly agricultural country, the Philippines has yet to realize the importance of this sector that brings food on our tables. PSYSC aims to rekindle the Filipino youth’s interest in agriculture and to raise awareness on its current situation in the country.
Through the four major events, NSCM 2016 hopes to bear its fruits of camaraderie and education among the Filipino youth.
This September 3-4, The National Science Clubs Summit (Summit) and PSYSC Extreme Activity Challenge (PEAC), will be held at different regional sites in the country, Junior high school students are coming together to discover and explore the wonders of agriculture in a series of lectures, workshops and team-building activities.
The I Teach Science Seminar (ITSS) will be held simultaneously with the Summit and PEAC to promote the importance of agriculture to junior high school teachers.
On September 3, The national eliminations of the PSYSC Science Olympiad (PSO), a quiz competition for both elementary and secondary students, will be conducted also at the Summit, PEAC and PSO – Independent Sites. The Top 20 schools from each bracket shall then compete for the PSO Finals which will be held in Metro Manila.
