DOST Davao Conducts Seminar to Bridge Science Communication Gap 

In an effort to enhance science communication efforts and bridge the gap between Science and public understanding, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Region XI hosted a seminar titled “So What? Communicating S&T Effectively” in collaboration with the DOST Regional and Provincial personnel alongside media members. 

The activity featured Ms. Framelia V. Anonas, Head of the Nuclear Information and Documentation Section at the DOST-Philippine Nuclear Research Institute, as the resource speaker.

Throughout the seminar, participants engaged in discussions and activities centered around key topics crucial for effective science communication. Ms. Anonas emphasized the importance of communicating science to the public, highlighting its role in fostering understanding and engagement within communities. 

DOST XI Regional Director, Dr. Anthony Sales highlighted the importance of such seminar in ensuring that the value of Science resonates with the broader public.

“The breakthroughs in the scientific field and countless other fields are only as powerful as our ability to convey their significance. Our breakthrough remains incomplete until it is effectively shared and understood by the people who are the primary benefactors of these projects,” Dr. Sales added. 

A highlight of the seminar was the afternoon writeshop, where participants actively applied the concepts discussed earlier in the day to develop their S&T content. 

The seminar provided a platform for DOST personnel and media members to exchange insights and experiences, fostering collaboration and knowledge-sharing in the realm of science communication. 

As Science continues to play an increasingly important role in shaping society, the initiative aims to ensure that DOST programs are communicated effectively, thereby empowering everyday people to make informed decisions and actively participate in the discourse surrounding S&T issues.  (Written by: Vener Zygmond O.
