PNRI – DOST Features Advances in Nuclear Science and Technology in 44th Atomic Energy Week Celebration
The Philippine Nuclear Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (PNRI-DOST) will feature the latest advances in nuclear science and technology in the fields of agriculture, industry, medicine and the environment during its 44th Atomic Energy Week celebration on December 5 to 9, 2016 at the PNRI compound in Commonwealth, Diliman, Quezon City.
The activities for this year’s celebration will focus on the theme, “Teknolohiyang Nukleyar para sa Kaunlaran ni Juan”.
The Institute will provide free guided tours to the exhibits and selected PNRI facilities and laboratories to students, teachers, researchers, entrepreneurs, and the public during the five-day celebration.
Experts will give presentations during the technical sessions on the beneficial applications of nuclear science and technology on December 5 and 6.
One of the highlights of the 44th AEW celebration is the holding of the Philippine Nuclear Youth Summit (PNYS) on December 7. The PNYS will serve as a forum for the youth to share information and knowledge and offer high school and college students as well as young professionals a voice in the future and inspire them to pursue a career in nuclear science.
Teams of high-school students from public and private schools across the country will compete with their knowledge in nuclear science and other related topics during the national level competition of the Philippine Nuclear Science Quiz (PNSQ) for High School Students to be held on December 8 at the PNRI Auditorium.
As mandated under Presidential Proclamation No. 1211 in 1973, the annual AEW is celebrated every second week of December to help generate awareness of the Filipinos on the beneficial uses of nuclear science and technology.
