Exemplifying the school’s specialized training and offerings in STEM and Research, innovative outputs of three groups of Malayan High School of Science students and alumni were featured and recognized in the recently concluded 1st Manila Intellectual Property, Innovation and Business Expo.
The research outputs bagged silver and bronze medals for the category of Product Innovation Creative Research for Learners and Teachers.
“The common ground among these research works is product innovation. All the research focused on producing new and innovative products using the latest technology,” Malayan Science Mathematics, Science and Technology teacher Anna Marie Sheryll Dimaiwat said.
Jersey Carlisle Estrella, Josh Anthony Gorzon, Christian Danielle Olegario, and Juan Raphael Valeriano utilized radio frequency identification (RFID) and Arduino technology to develop an alternative school attendance system with better reading accuracy and speed.
Their research entitled A Comparative Study of the Malayan High School of Science ID System and the Low-Frequency RFID-Arduino Based Attendance Monitoring System was awarded with a silver medal.
Two more Malayan Science research groups were recognized, receiving bronze medals for their innovations.
In their study Water-Resistant Hyacinth Paper, Aryzza Antonette Aperocho, Matt Dylan Geli, Hana Ysabelli Pevidal, and Kyara Christelle Riguerra used water hyacinth as an alternative in creating water-resistant paper at par with global standards.
