The Department of Science and Technology has organized and held Science and Technology week celebrations since the 1950s. The event was instituted in 1982 through Presidential Proclamation 2214, which was amended through Republic Act 169 in 1993 to set the National Science and Technology Week every third week of July.
The NSTW aims to bring science and technology closer to the people by letting them experience the vital role of science, technology, and innovation in improving the people’s quality of life, protecting the environment, and contributing to national development, particularly in poverty alleviation.
Moreover, the NSTW highlights the capability of local S&T experts and inspire the youth and other sectors in believing that Filipinos can do it and that local technology works.
Its events and exhibits are the perfect venues for technology developers and investors, as well as S&T service providers and clients, to interact and pursue potential opportunities.
Every NSTW celebration is designed to optimize said opportunities and make S&T a way of life for Filipinos.
The National Science and Technology Week (NSTW) 2015 will be held on July 24 - 28, 2015 at SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex. Admission is FREE. for more information on event details and program log on to http://nstw.dost.gov.ph.
