In case you didn't know, DOST-SEI have kicked-off the IMAKE.WEMAKE project last 2016. It has then served as a platform towards unleashing the creativity of young Filipinos to enable them to discover their potentials and learn the process of using innovation to achieve a particular purpose that will benefit their community of interest. 

Some of the innovations presented at this year's IMAKE.WEMAKE project were a more specific weather report through smaller-scale forecast, smoother flow of traffic through elimination of felon vehicles, a more responsive food provider through exigent report of scarcity, etc. 

For this year, the IMAKE.WEMAKE project have made an upgrade with the first Internet-of-Things (IoT) toolkit, the Acer CloudProfessor. DOST-SEI have partnered with Acer Philippines to aid on the students' need to incorporate IoT in their creations through simplified coding and programming.

There were a total of 65 teams but only 16 advanced to the finals. These finalists were able to be part of Acer's 5-day FREE training and pitching programs. The contestants were given hands-on training on the Arduino digital and analog system and Acer CloudProfessor to power their projects.

Among the 16 finalists, Technological Institute of the Philippines, Philippine Science High School - Eastern Visayas Campus (PSHS-EVC), and New Era University were awarded with Youth Innovation Prize award for having the most outstanding projects along with PHP 50,000 cash prize each team. Meanwhile College of St. John - Roxas, was given the special Acer IoT Excellence Award for their innovation project.

DOST-SEI have shared that in the IMAKE.WEMAKE 2019, the cash prize will be doubled up to PHP 100,000! 

We are excited to see next year's innovations from the young minds of our senior high school students.
