#thinkScience is a public engagement science activity developed in partnership with the GREAT Britain Campaign. It is a platform to encourage high school students to think about careers in science and to showcase the UK’s strengths in science and innovation, through a series of talks and school visits to six locations all over the country.
The first #thinkScience event was held in Baguio City and featured speakers from GSK and the British Embassy. Other #thinkScience events will also be held in different cities all over the Philippines, namely in Cebu on 25 August, and Iloilo, Davao, and Cagayan de Oro in September. The series will culminate in October in Metro Manila.
All #thinkScience events will feature different speakers, especially those with successful science careers in different UK companies, such as STI Philippines and Shell Philippines, amongst others.
The GREAT Britain campaign is the Government’s most ambitious international marketing campaign ever and showcases the very best of what Britain has to offer in order to encourage the world to visit, study and do business with the UK. British Embassy Manila will be launching various events nationwide beginning on 9 September.
