Class on an automotive course where the Trainer Model for Instructional Automotive Charging System is being used

The "Trainer Model for Instructional Automotive Charging System with Automatic Voltage Regulator and Integrated Circuits" or the "Autocharge" is an updated, affordable, and safe-to-use instructional trainer model for teaching automotive charging systems.

One of the challenges in learning automotive technology is the technical gap among learners. Students need hands-on experience that requires actual interaction with automotive parts and demonstration from professors. However, this requires a lot of costs.

Autocharge seeks to address this gap by providing hands-on practice on automotive charging systems conveniently with reduced cost. Its charging system contains two circuits: an Integrated Circuit and an Automatic Voltage Regulator Circuit. It comes with an instructional manual and training sessions with instructors.

The Department of Science and Technology–X (DOST-X), through the Regional Research Funding (RRF) Program of DOST-Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD), released P731,924.00 to Central Mindanao University (CMU) to implement the research project that aims to assess the effectiveness of the Community-Based Drug Rehabilitation Program (CBRP) in Valencia City, Bukidnon.

The study will explore the experiences of the drug responders and stakeholders while engaged in the rehabilitation program. The results of the study are highly significant to the implementation of the Anti-Drug Campaign in Valencia City and its barangays. The City Social Welfare & Development Office (CSWDO), City Health Office (CHO), Philippine National Police (PNP), Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), drug rehabilitation institutions, and health professionals may benefit from this research as it could be used as basis for the formulation or enhancement of policies relevant to drug prevention, control, and rehabilitation.

PSTD Ritchie Mae Guno with the LGU Talakag handed the Computerized Embroidery Machine and its software to Myrna M. Exclamado, the President of KKK on April 21, 2022

The Department of Science and Technology-Bukidnon turned over one unit of computerized embroidery machine with advanced embroidery software to Kababayin-an Kaabag sa Kalambuan (KKK) on April 22, 2022, at San Isidro, Talakag, Bukidnon.

KKK, a women's organization based in Talakag, Bukidnon, has been in garment-making since 2018. However, due to the lack of technology, the organization opted to outsource the embroidery-related services from other shops in the neighboring cities. This process limited their income and productivity.

DOST-Bukidnon, in close partnership with the Local Government Unit of Talakag, made the intervention possible with a total project cost amounting to Php 577,440 through the agency's Community Empowerment through Science and Technology (DOST-CEST) program.

Forty-two municipalities in region 10 will soon benefit from the recently deployed RxBox telehealth devices in healthcare centers. These devices can reduce the overall cost of healthcare by enabling health workers to diagnose, monitor, and treat patients within rural health facilities.

RxBox is a multi-component program (biomedical device, electronic medical record system, and telemedicine training) designed to provide better access to life-saving health care services in isolated and disadvantaged communities nationwide.

Following its deployment, residents in the recipient municipalities can access the device's features, such as Blood Pressure Monitor, Pulse Oximeter, Electrocardiogram (ECG), Fetal Heart Monitor, Maternal Tocometer, and Temperature Sensor.
