60 Isabela highschoolers were trained to be future inventors during the recently concluded Invent-School Program (ISP) on October 9-10, 2017 conducted at Isabela State University-Cauayan City Campus, Isabela. Topics discussed were Industrial Applications, Intellectual Property Rights and Protection, Invention Development, Prototyping and Commercialization.

The Program which is offered to high school and college students for the past nine (9) years, creates awareness on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), prototype development, and commercialization of inventions and aims to produce future Filipino Inventors thru learning Creativity, Invention Development and Intellectual Property Protection.

Considered as a starting ground among young Filipino inventors, Invent School provides opportunities for students to get in touch with their creative and inventive side, leading them to grow their natural ingenuities meant for generating manoeuvres for future enterprises.

“It is through this Program that young minds realize the important role of science and technology in economic and social development by encouraging them to pursue a science-related career that would make them professional inventors, researchers, and scientists in the near future,” Caezar Angelito E. Arceo, Program Speaker of Invent School, said.

“Inculcating critical and creative thinking in solving problems in relation with the inclination to prototype development and entrepreneurship is what the Program aspires young students to progress in,” Arceo added.

The modules, entitled “What’s in the Box” and “Density and Buoyancy”, were developed in partnership with the Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) and the University of the Philippines Marine Science Institute (UP-MSI). Consulted experts were Ms. Jakelley del Prado and Mr. Jeffrey Maloles, both were highly recommended by DOST-SEI.

ISP involves the conduct of a two-day seminar/workshop for high school and college students and out-of-school youth in cooperation with inventors’ groups, LGUs and NGOs to stimulate students’ interest in creativity and inventiveness and create awareness on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Protection. The program provides an opportunity for students/OSY not only to develop their creativity and potentials but also to awaken their true ingenuity, leading to the development of devices and processes that will become their enterprises. ISP serves as a starting ground for young Filipino inventors in the field of inventing and entrepreneurship.
