Prudente awarded for science promotion

Dr. Maricar Prudente, chairperson of the Science Education Department, was recently awarded the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) gold medal in a simple ceremony held on September 7 at the Department of Science and Technology Main Building, Bicutan, Taguig, Metro Manila.

Along with the other five RONPAKU graduates around the country, Prudente received the award from DOST Secretary Estrella Alabastro and Assistant Secretary Dr. Maripaz Perez. During this occasion, Prudente was asked to talk about her experiences as a RONPAKU Fellow to a group of JSPS RONPAKU graduates, new grantees, and ongoing fellows. Issues and concerns which DOST may be able to address was also identified during the meeting. Possible areas of cooperation that may be established between DOST and the RONPAKU graduates were also explored.

Sponsored by the Lasallian Pastoral Office and first introduced in September 2000, LS101 is a response to the call of the Lasallian Ministry Action Plan for “formation for members of the Lasallian family.” It covers the basics of Lasallian formation, the life of our founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle, the spirit of faith & zeal, and community experience. The next LS101 is scheduled in mid-November.
