“Prepare, Response, Recover” are essential things to consider in mitigating problems encountered during and after emergencies. And for a coastal community in Hagonoy, Bulacan, relevant information and sufficient preparation should be done to reduce undesirable risks in times of calamity.
As a way to address these challenges, the DOST-III pioneered the deployment of Disaster Preparedness-Kit (Disaster Prep-Kit) developed by Frontlearners Inc. in Brgy. Tibaguin, Hagonoy, Bulacan. The project was funded under the expanded implementation of the Community Empowerment through Science and Technology (eCEST) program which is fully supported by Senator Joel Villanueva.
The Disaster Prep-Kit consists of 25 tablets, Short Range Radio Service (SRRS) units (NTC licensed), and a system unit containing theoretical and practical drills for disaster preparedness, livelihood contingency, continuity planning, and learning modules aligned to K-12 curriculum. The unit also comes up with solar panels to recharge and operate the tablets and SRRS Radio even in the absence of commercial electric services.
Floodings caused by high tides and storm surges caused by strong typhoons are frequent occurrences in Brgy. Tibaguin. Although there is

A series of of online robotics trainings and workshops for teachers was recently conducted through a collaboration among Provincial Science and Technology Center of Zambales (PSTC-Zambales) , the City Government of Olongapo, A+ Solutions Development Center Corporation and Nerdvana Romania Private Educational Center from July 30 to August 4,2021. A total of 10 Olongapo City teachers were trained on the principles of algorithm, programming, line followers, color sensors and inertia involving robots.
This first step in the establishment of a robotics training facility was made possible through the DOST Central Luzon Grants-in-Aid (GIA) Program.
The project aims to motivate more students to pursue careers in science and technology by capacitating them in the design prototypes, building and testing machines, and in developing the software that control the robots. Students will likewise be trained to conduct research and find the most cost-efficient and safest way to manufacture robotic systems.
