MANILA/23 April 2012—AGHAM Party-List Rep. Angelo B. Palmones commended the Philippine team who will represent the country for the first time in the First Lego League (FLL) World Festival on 25 to 28 April 2012 at St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The FLL is a robotic competition which aims to find solutions to real world problems.
The Philippine team, composed of high school students from Dr. Yanga’s Colleges Inc (DYCI) in Bulacan, has been named Blue Ocean 10 with the following members: Gladys Leigh Malana, Trisha Carmela Santos, Ramkert del Prado, Lady Alein Goleng, Keight dela Cruz, Dave Adrian Bien, Michelle Alcanar, Jules Martin Agsaoay, Jonathan Alejandro and Tim Jharmal Fabilion. The team’s coach is Mr. Beryl Cruz. The Philippine team left for the U.S today, 23 April 2012.
Team DYCI Blue Ocean 10 invented an innovative solution that can address problem in food contamination, particularly meat. Named “MAGISv2” or Meat’s Anti-Germ and Infection Solution, the invention can check if meat is safe or unsafe for human consumption.
In February this year, the DCYI Blue Ocean 10 bested 15 other schools in the FIRST Lego League Philippines by winning three of the five major awards, namely Champion Award, Project Award and Core Values Award.
On the other hand, the FLL World Festival in St. Louis, Missouri this April will be joined by 35 countries and 40 states in the USA.
“Food safety is a worldwide concern. The invention of the Philippine team which can determine whether meat is safe or not for consumption is really useful and relevant in ensuring the health of the consumers. Let’s support them especially through our prayers,” Palmones said. (Ref: Vicky B. Bartilet, AGHAM)
