            “Excellence is not about winning, it is doing your best to something you want to achieve,” said Elvira S. Urbiztondo, Ph.D, Division Science Supervisor of Tandag City during her opening message.
Science enthusiasts from the different schools of Tandag City showcased their best entries for Science Investigatory Project as they competed the annual Division Science Congress held in Jacinto P. Elpa National High School LRC Building, Capitol Hills, Tandag City last September 20, 2013.

            According to her, that despite being an infant division, Tandag City is able to conduct a competition that develops the scientific habits of mind of the students in promoting researches that mitigate global warming.

            Student researchers from the different participating schools competed on the following events: Life Science (Individual and Team Categories), Physical Science (Individual and Team Categories).

            In this contest, display board was required per entry to exhibit the research projects as part of pre-judging. After the five-minute presentation and five-minute deliberation of the project, the research papers of the contestants were screened out based on the mechanics stipulated in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the largest high school scientific research event in the world, owned and administered by the Society for Science and the Public.)

            Winning entries in both individual and team categories will represent Tandag City this coming Regional Science and Technology Fair on October 7, 2013 in Bayugan City with the theme: “Environmental Protection and Nature Conservation: Key Factors to a Sustainable K-12”.
