“Powering Generation of Thinkers’’
This has been the battle cry of the Invent School Program, an ideation program by the Department of Science and Technology - Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI), which encourages students to learn and discover their potential as future scientists and inventors. In 2020, Invent School stayed true to its mission as it catered student learners using their newest platform - the online world.
Because of the pandemic, Invent School had to innovate beyond the traditional face-to-face workshops, which cannot be conducted due to varying community restrictions. As a result, the program explored webinars and tailored-fit its training using online platforms in order to deliver the same quality of service to its students.
