One of the highlights of LU’s 12th Foundation Anniversary was the opening of the first-ever research exhibit at the Audio-Visual Room of the New LU Building. This event coincides with the celebration of Valentine’s day as well as Ash Wednesday for the Roman Catholic.
The exhibition explored the fascinating aspects of research in the academic field by combining the discoveries and innovation of students and faculty in their respective disciplines. It allowed the audience to interact with the machines, experience and learn: how to prepare different types of food and provide services to customers; how to improve speaking skills; and other significant findings in the institution and the community. Even the Senior High School students showcased their research studies. This is their first time to join the said event and serves as a good training ground for them.
According to Atty. Antonio P. Relova, VP for Administration, the exhibit is an indication that research is already being cultivated inside the institution and he encourages everyone to continue writing relevant researches. Prof. Monette O. Bato, VP for Planning, Research and Extension also expressed her unwavering support to the event. She emphasized the importance of research in an academic institution. An activity like this can help strengthen the research culture in LU.
There were two contests for the event: Research Exhibit and Poster Presentation. Dr. Marie Joy Q. Elomina, Director for Research explained the criteria for judging and presented the three judges. These are: Dr. Colegio S. Gascon, VP for Academic Affairs, Atty. Relova and an external judge, Mr. Roman R. Sarmiento, Jr. Below are the winners of the research expo:
