Recent data shows that the number of scientists, engineers, researchers and S&T professionals in the Philippines is at 270 per million population. This is way below the UNESCO’s standard of 380 per million to create a knowledge-based economy. To increase the number of S&T professionals in the country, DOST has been implementing scholarship programs to entice students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

DOST-Caraga will conduct its first webinar series on “STEM Career Paths and the DOST-SEI Undergraduate Scholarship Programs” via videoconferencing and Facebook live for Grade-12 students, teachers and anyone interested.  Participants can expect speakers and experts in Mathematics, Basic Sciences, Engineering and Technology to discuss about career paths.

It will be an eight-part webinar series wherein each session will focus on a specific field and participants can choose session/s they wish to attend to.
