St. Paul University Dumaguete celebrated Math and Science Month 2018 with the theme “Math and Science for the People” headed by the Math and Science majors from the College of Arts and Education (CAED) with their respective moderators. The celebration was held last September 24-27, 2018 with several activities spearheaded by the students concerned.
On the 24th of September, the Math majors were able to launch their mobile photography contest and the Science majors were also able to have their essay writing and poster and slogan contests. These activities were actively participated by students from the different academic departments of the university. On the 25th of September, a Math and Science Interactive Booth and Exhibit was installed at the Mere Maria Hall. The interactive booths installed several mind and trivia games in their respective booths. The Mathletes were able to give puzzles in their booth and did their “Calculympic” game. Meanwhile, the Paniksik Society was also able to provide some trivia games in their booth and did their Science Spelling Bee Contest. In line with this activity, the Science, Technology, and Society (STS) classes from different colleges were also able to participate on their I-Solve Village Exhibit.
