University of the Philippines Academic League of Chemical Engineering Students (UP ALCHEMES)
UP Diliman, Quezon City
In pursuit of academic excellence, UP ALCHEMES has always seen the value of research, especially by the Filipino Youth, not only in their intellectual endeavors but also in character building. Since the event’s emergence in 2002, Research Fair has continued working towards its goal of harnessing the potential of young minds, encouraging the proliferation of scientific investigations and bridging a fellowship between novice and experts in many research interests. Research Fair started as a one-day event where high school students in the vicinity of Metro Manila get to present their scientific outputs.
Over the years, an influx of submitted works eventually led to its expansion in 2010 to a three-day nationwide event where high school participants can acquire new learning from lectures given by speakers in their respective fields of expertise and a platform where they share findings in their researches. It now has three main events namely: the Research Competition, National Science Conquest and Youth Science Convention. Research Fair continues in promoting science and research discipline to high school students, in delivering innovations from young scientists to a larger audience. Creative innovations in production and application that ultimately, can contribute to nation building.
