Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Undersecretary Rowena Cristina L. Guevara interacts with students from Philippine Science High School-Cordillera Campus during the Science and Robotics Interactive Exhibits at the National Science and Technology Week recently held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.  On display are a remote controlled vehicle (far side of the table), a color sorter (middle) and a sun tracker, all of which were created by the students. The color sorter has a possible real life application in agriculture, specifically for sorting ripe and unripe fruits.  (Below) One of the students holds a flashlight above the sun tracker to demonstrate how it works.  Always facing the strongest source of light, the sun tracker can be used in solar panels to maximize the sun’s energy.  (S&T Media Service)
