“For so many years technology actually changed everything, in poverty, agriculture — lahat ay from technology. In climate action, we are able to help by showcasing DOST technologies in disaster risk reduction. Sa agriculture naman, we do smarter approach para mas gumaan at mag-level up ang ating sektor ng agrikultura,” she said.

“I would like to address ‘yong mga kabataan ng PPC, nandito tayo sa sitwasyon na nagkaroon ng maraming changes due to science mainly because ang mga tao ay laging inquisitive dahil ‘yon ang kailangan to find and create new things. The world will change na bumibilis dahil sa science,” Bayron said.

He also said that there are many ways to create new things which may also provide income.

“Mga kabataan may pera science kaya ‘wag kayong mayakot na kumuha ng mga science project dahil baka sa inyo manggagaling ang change na magbabago sa bansa. Let’s think of other ways na mapapakinabanggan. Mas maganda kung magkaroon kayo ng mga interest para engrave sa inyo ang world of science,” Bayron said.
