BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, April 22 (PIA) – The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) recently linked the teachers and students of two schools in the upland town of Ambaguio to various science and information web.

Through the S&T Academic and Research-Based Openly-Operated Kiosk Stations (STARBOOKS), two sets of computers with installed science and technology information were distributed & setup recently in Ambaguio Central School (ACS) and Ambaguio High School (AHS) both in barangay Poblacion of Ambaguio.

With the STARBOOKS, schoolers and teachers of both schools can now have access to the vast scientific information available on the system without an internet connection.

“We are grateful for this project. This will surely help our schoolers and teachers in their quest for better learning especially this time of COVID-19 pandemic,” Lucia Balahiw, ACS principal said.

The STARBOOKS project was set-up by the DOST in partnership with LGU officials to address science and technology research in the absence of internet connectivity in Ambaguio town, one of Nueva Vizcaya’s upland towns, occupied mostly by the Kalanguya and Ikalahan tribes.
