Quezonian high school coed bags silver in National Science Quest essay tilt

LUCENA CITY, Quezon Feb. 20 (PNA) -– Quezon Science High School (QSHS) 15 year-old coed Christine Loui V. Araña bagged the silver during the final round of the National Science Quest’s Essay Writing category in mid-February in Teacher’s Camp, Baguio City.

Araña was surprised and was a bit edgy as the CALABARZON region’s contender emerged the region’s lone victor in the finals.

The National Science Quest is spearheaded by the Association of Science Educators of the Philippines (ASEP) with the objective of promoting academic excellence in science and technology.

The competition category’s topic brought into focus the negative effects of climate change and what can be done to combat its negative effects.

The topic for the exposition tilt was meant to test the awareness and creativity of the young contenders on crucial issues concerning science and technology.

Araña is the editor-in-chief of “Ang Velocity,” the official publication of the QSHS.

Quezon Governor David C. Suarez founded the provincial science secondary school which rose to become Quezon’s premiere science hub.

The government high school institution offers specialized curriculum in Mathematics and Science for free to the province’s future scientists and leaders. (PNA)
