Last September 2017, the Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs (PSYSC) held contests all across the nation to encourage young learners and aspiring scientists to nurture their passions and reach for their dreams in celebration of this year’s National Science Club Month (NSMC). Plenty of these enthusiastic kids won, and the students of Philippine Science High School – West Visayas Campus were no exception.
Last September 9, ten students were chosen to represent the school in the following competitions: Mathematics, Science at Kapaligiran (MathSciAka) 2017, MathSciAka Eng Sci Challenge, and the Philippine Science Olympiad regional eliminations. The team of Danielle Anleigh B. Colacion, Cheril B. Triol, Katrina Bianca T. Bandiola, Elain S. Geroche, and Juan Paolo Miguel I. Salmon won first runner-up in the MathSciAka competition, while Amos Nathan B. Tuangco and Thoreenz P. Soldevilla also won first runner-up in the MathSciAka Eng Sci Challenge. The trio of Jenn Christel C. Sampiano, Seth William C. Tionko, and Ewemiz C. Insigne were crowned the regional champion of the PSO eliminations, allowing them to progress to the national division, held in September 30, 2017 at Philippine Institute of Quezon City. Jenn Sampiano was also awarded Top Scorer of Region VI.
