Malayan Science student research works win in Manila innovation expo

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Exemplifying the school’s specialized training and offerings in STEM and Research, innovative outputs of three groups of Malayan High School of Science students and alumni were featured and recognized in the recently concluded 1st Manila Intellectual Property, Innovation, and Business Expo (MIPIBEx).

The research outputs bagged silver and bronze medals for the category of Product Innovation Creative Research for Learners and Teachers.

“The common ground among these research works is product innovation. All the research focused on producing new and innovative products using the latest technology,” Malayan Science Mathematics, Science, and Technology teacher Anna Marie Sheryll R. Dimaiwat said.

A Comparative Study of the Malayan High School of Science ID System and the Low-Frequency RFID-Arduino Based Attendance Monitoring System

Jersey Carlisle Estrella, Josh Anthony Gorzon, Christian Danielle Olegario, and Juan Raphael Valeriano utilized radio frequency identification (RFID) and Arduino technology to develop an alternative school attendance system with better reading accuracy and speed. Their research entitled A Comparative Study of the Malayan High School of Science ID System and the Low-Frequency RFID-Arduino Based Attendance Monitoring System (LRABAMS) was awarded with a silver medal.

Water-Resistant Hyacinth Paper

Two more Malayan Science research groups were recognized, receiving bronze medals for their innovations.

In their study Water-Resistant Hyacinth Paper, Aryzza Antonette Aperocho, Matt Dylan Geli, Hana Ysabelli Pevidal, and Kyara Christelle Riguerra used water hyacinth as an alternative in creating water-resistant paper at par with global standards.

Leonard Sean Escobar, Charmaigne Lizzette Inao, Earl Justin Lee, Chelsea Mykyla Solajes, and Isaac Cornelius Bensley Sy’s The Feasibility of Arduino-Operated Kolocard as an Alternative Locking System showed the prototype poses positive qualities in security, administration, and management of smart locks, which are not of the traditional lock system.

Research and innovation are an integral part of students’ learning experience at Malayan Science. Its conduct provides students with an opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom to create something beneficial to individuals, organizations, and the community.

“These research works can be their references for future studies. These can also be improved by future researchers. For the community, it can be a solution to an issue or source of income,” she added.
