Aspiring to grow the network of STARBOOKS-ready facilities in SOCCSKSARGEN wider, DOST XII under the leadership of Regional Director Engr. Sammy P. Malawan partners up with DepEd for easy linkage to public schools and learning institutions in need of supplemental learning resources.

Convention Hall in Brgy. Paraiso, Koronadal City, South Cotabato.

Estacio, and PSTO-South Cotabato Provincial Director, Engr. Mohammad Naif Z. Abdulazis who have all officially inked the memorandum making the endowment official. Quickly after, the STARBOOKS Orientation program was also facilitated with Mr. Benjie Francisco, STARBOOKS Deployment Officer as the training personnel.

Premium education has since been one of the ultimate aims, and offerings of the department, channeled through a variety of projects and developed programs specially geared to increase interest in the Science and Technology field among the younger population. Relatively, STARBOOKS is tagged as one of the most inventive programs developed by the DOST permitting a better learning experience for the students, especially those situated in geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas.
