In close coordination with the Philippine Science High School (Pisay), Department of Science and Technology – National Capital Region (DOST-NCR), and Las Piñas DepEd Division, the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI) conducted the Invent School Program (ISP) and implemented the first leg of the OJT training for Pisay faculty and staff. The two-day seminar-workshop was held last 21-22 March 2019 at Las Piñas City.
Under the project entitled, “Capacity Building for the Philippine Science High School (PSHS) for the Invent School Implementation,” Pisay will be the future mentors, trainors and the strategic partner of the institute in implementing ISP. The seminar-workshop was just the first among the series of OJT trainings for Pisay.
Baguio, Cebu, and Davao legs will follow immediately to complete the OJT for PSHS.
A total of 40 participants from various Las Piñas high schools attended the event, composed of students and faculties.
