WYA Asia Pacific Awarded Outstanding Partner in Science and Technology


The Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs (PSYSC) recognized World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific (WYAAP) as one of its Outstanding Partners in the Promotion of Science and Technology among young Filipinos. WYAAP members and former interns Mary Imbong and Zarina San Jose received the recognition during the organization’s 2014 Gala Night held on March 22 at Lemuria Gourmet Restaurant in Quezon City.

PSYSC and WYAAP have partnered in different youth projects in the past. Their most recent collaboration was during the organization’s 2014 National Youth Science, Technology and Environment Science Camp (NYSTESC) held from April 2 – 5, 2014 at the Hidden Paradise Mountain Resort, San Fernando, Cebu City.

The Science Camp themed Cirque de Merveilles: Trapezing the Marvels of Evolution focused on understanding the fundamental concepts and current breakthroughs in evolutionary science. The camp also aimed at promoting research and development among high school students by showcasing discoveries of promising student scientists who have made an impact on the environment. The 4-day youth gathering also featured a series of lectures and workshops, trips, and other educational activities.

As an official partner, WYA Asia Pacific spoke at the conference. WYA member Polyanna Marie Lacang represented WYA Asia Pacific. She shared her experience as a Summer Camper, Track A Trained member and an officer of Assumption Iloilo’s WYA Teen Club. She inspired the students by sharing the different projects and initiatives that their high school club has done to promote human dignity.

PSYSC has been in existence in more than four decades and has duly been recognized as a national organization promoting science, technology and environmental awareness. The organization consistently conducts interactive events serving over 120,000 affiliates of students and teachers nationwide.
