Science for the PeopleDr. Louie Mar Gangcuangco joined eleven other Balik Scientists (Returning Scientists) as guest of honor at the National Science and Technology Week held in Davao City, Mindanao. No less than the President of the Republic of the Philippines, Rodrigo Roa Duterte, graced the event as key note speaker.
With more scientists, researchers and engineers returning to the Philippines, the Balik Scientist Law aims to address the brain drain plaguing our country.
The Balik Scientists engaged in cultural activities, enjoyed local Filipino food, and donned the national costume barong. It was indeed a weekend of fellowship, collaboration and celebration.
