Believe it or not, I went to NSTW!
This year’s National Science and Technology Week is held in World Trade Center, Pasay. As grade 12 students in Las Piñas Science Highschool, we were all required to visit and take a photo on some of the booths/inventions that we like, also we were to create an essay explaining our experience and why and how this certain research caught our attention.
So, my friends and I went there last July 14 (Friday) and 15, 2017 (Saturday) because one day isn’t enough to check every booth and discover what inventions and studies they got. Honestly, it was quite a challenge for me to keep my interest, throughout the day or afternoon, in some science stuff since I am not that kind of person who get excited over chemistry or biology. Yes, so not like a science highschool student, I know haha! Not sure if I really belong there as well, kidding HAHA
But as we enter and go over the booths, I suddenly got interested in some relating to architecture, biology, etc, and that I am surprised of. It is so not me but it kind of made me feel happy, becuase I got to discover a side of me that I am not aware of.
So the research or booth that caught my attention the most except from the lab to fab booth (fashion booth) is this, the Fablab, college of fine arts in UP.
They created a Flatpack table and chairs that does not use any screws or nails in bulding it, it just have a lock on each part that could keep it sturdy and safe to use. It is cool plus the 3D printer they had in their booth.
These are the bunch of people who made it fun and interesting!
So we met this cute little bud.
Besides having a chance to take a photo in the UPD booth, I got the last stock of their free bag! Yay for freebies HAHA
Also, we got some secrets to tell. ‘Cause we’re… Shh.
But, kidding aside, NSTW changed my perspective when in comes to science. It made me realize how fun science is if we just try to understand it a bit better.
If yoy ask me to come back, I definitely would love to, next year!
