NOHS seeks help with patenting
The Negros Occidental High School sees a bright future for its budding inventors and innovators after the Technological University of the Philippines–Visayas assured its assistance in the patenting of inventions of its students, principal, Mario Amaca, said yesterday.
At a press conference for the opening of the school’s Science Month Celebration, Amaca said that students at the public high school continue to impress with their creative minds, especially for their research work in their Science Investigatory Project, that paved way for new technology and discovery.
He said NOHS has partnered with other institutions for the use of their laboratories for the experiments of the students, “They provided us with the facility, while the students only have their ‘hands manipulation,’” he added.
