In fact, science-related programs and career tracks have been motivated by employment while research, development, and communication have been less integrated. As in baseball, no matter how great the pitcher is, the catcher must be good as well. Otherwise, the game is not good.
There are over 11,000 Pinoy scientists today, some still hoping to achieve the highest form of accolade in science and technology. Just like it did for Filipino journalism, winning the Nobel Prize in science would encourage R&D development in the Philippines–but our scientists will need all the help they can get.
Other progressive countries are developed because they have made science, technology, and innovation (STI) their priority. As a global community living in the modern technological age, science is the key to a country’s progression and the Philippines falls behind in this aspect.
Through agribusinesses such as bee farms, many more women like farmers, homemakers, and community members can earn a stable income while protecting and conserving natural resources.

It started with a promise and ended with a legacy. Today, a little over a decade after Dr. Fe Del Mundo’s death, we illuminate and narrate a promise that saved the children.
Due to its archipelagic nature, the Philippines is a megadiverse country that houses two-thirds of the world’s biodiversity, specifically 70-80% of known animal and plant species to date.
Current solutions to the pressing ecological issues can only do much. There needs to be a shift in the paradigm of conservation wherein local communities and indigenous groups educate the people about good land management practices.
The living earth has endured millennia after millennia of drastic changes and adapted accordingly, all without rapidly killing ecosystems as humans do. Fortunately, in recent years, scientists decided to dig deeper into her works in redesigning our societies, thus opening the world to the wonderful field of biomimicry.
What we need is a more proactive healthcare system that allows even the poorest of Filipinos to get tested. With this kind of information, better and more inclusive contact tracing protocols can be enforced.
