I was on my way home when I decided to drop by at Mall of Asia. I was just wandering around the place when I noticed some exhibits in there. Just by then I learned that our country is celebrating the National Science and Technology Week with this year's theme, "Science, Technology and Innovaton: Working together for Growth and Development". The exhibits are open to public. Students and other interested can view the exhibits until 7 in the evening from July 10-14, 2012. I found the exhibits quite interesting although I am not really into Science. This celebration is being held yearly but honestly, this is the first time I have heard of it. I was also thinking if other countries also celebrate this kind of activity yearly.

Science and technology is exactly what the country needs in order to be more competitive, just wondering why government has neglected it for a long time. I remember when I was a kid, when there was ( don't know if it's still there)NSDB ( national science development board) just along Taft and Herran road in Manila where you can see exhibits almost the whole year round, If there was one thing with the former dictatorship, it gave great priority to science and technology that's why we were a strong nation back then.

I have search about NSDB and found out that it was reconstituted and became the National Science and Technology Authority then later on became the Department of Science and Technology. They were the one who organized the exhibits at MOA.

Hi, the exhibits are at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia in Pasay City. Exhibits are open to public. There is a registration area in there and you will just have to register and you will given a sticker which will serve as your ticket. I did not pay any amount so it is free. As for the conferences being held upstairs, I have no idea if those are for free or open to public as well.
