October 29, 2021

DOST-Masbate, together with DOST-Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI), conducted Invent School Program (ISP) Webinar Edition for selected students from Jose Zurbito Sr. Elementary School, Amancio Aguilar Elementary School, and Masbate National Comprehensive High School in the City of Masbate on 27-29 October 2021. Eighty-six students and six teachers from the elementary level, and 51 students and six teachers from the high school level benefitted from the activity that aimed to stimulate creativity and innovativeness among students through interactive discussions and workshops on such topics as Creativity, Inventing: Role of Inspiration, Nature-inspired Invention, Developing Creative Thinking Skills (Ideation Tools and Techniques & Creative Problem Solving), Invention Development, and Intellectual Property Rights.

The conduct of ISP helped promote inventiveness among the participants and also encouraged them to have a share in addressing real industry problems at a very young age. The program also served as an opportunity for them to develop not only their creativity but their true individual ingenuity as well.
