After winning of the six students from Philippine Science High School (PSHS), in the Science Olympiad in South Korea last month, it is said that this may be the first step of the country for Philippine’s first Nobel Prize.
The six students won six medals at a prestigious Science Tournament in South Korea, proving that Filipinos can go toe-to-toe with the best in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
The senior and juniors from the state-run PSHS brought home three silver and three bronze medals from the 5th International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO) in Changwon City on December 6-15.
Benjamin Francis Rodriguez Jr., a junior who had the highest marks among the Philippine delegates said that they never expected to do so well in the said event.
Other winners were Jan Tristram Acuña and William Tan, seniors, who won silver medals, while the bronze medalists were Guia Publico, Cara Evangelista and Ralph Ugalino.
This shows that Filipinos can confidently compete with other countries.
