Pasig empowers students, enhances facilities
Pasig City continues to prioritize education under the leadership of Mayor Vico Sotto, with two significant initiatives aimed at empowering students and improving educational facilities.
Empowering High School Students with 3D Printers and Visser Kits
Pasig City has taken a major step forward in STEM education by providing high school students with 3D printers and Visser kits. This initiative, made possible through the Department of Science and Technology's #Push4Science project in collaboration with the Department of Education, equips students with essential skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Mayor Vico Sotto and Congressman Romulo expressed their gratitude to the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) for implementing this project, which aligns with Pasig's commitment to keeping pace with technological advancements. The initiative offers hands-on experience and exposure to cutting-edge tools, preparing students for a tech-driven world.
Elevating Education and Facilities at PLP
In another significant move, laptops and tablets were distributed to students at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasig (PLP). This ensures that students have access to essential digital resources for their academic pursuits.
Mayor Vico Sotto highlighted key developments at PLP, including the continuation of connectivity allowances, facility improvements, and a strengthened sports program. The city also focuses on enhancing the academic curriculum and fostering connections with relevant stakeholders, including employment opportunities for students.
Acknowledging the crucial role played by various stakeholders, Mayor Vico Sotto expressed gratitude for their unwavering support. These initiatives demonstrate Pasig City's commitment to providing quality education and opportunities for its residents.
Additionally, Mayor Vico Sotto announced the "Pagasa Scholarship Program" for students who passed the entrance exam but may face difficulties in joining PLP. This program, in collaboration with PCC and Arellano University, aims to provide educational opportunities to deserving students.
These initiatives underscore Pasig City's dedication to nurturing its youth, equipping them with valuable skills, and providing them with the tools they need to succeed in the digital age.
