TWO IN A ROW. Rizal National Science High School successfully defended their title in this year's Can Satellite Competition, held on 28-29 November in Los Baños, Laguna. The team composed of Josh Rael Jorquia, Matthew Lemuel Rey, and Marla Ena Rosales, and their coach, Marlon Sta. Catalina, received their award from the judges composed of Dr. Rogel Mari Sese, Robert Badrin, and Engr. Percival Magpantay.
Rizal National Science High School (RNSHS) proved they are the team to beat when it comes to designing and analyzing data from can satellites. The group, which bagged the top spot in last year’s Can Satellite (CanSat) competition, won this year’s Best Systems Engineering special award and emerged as the 3rd CanSat Competition champion anew. They prevailed over 14 other schools in the three-day event held last November 27-29 in Los Banos, Laguna.
RNSHS students Josh Rael Jorquia, Matthew Lemuel Rey, and Marla Ena Rosales successfully designed, launched, and analyzed the data transmitted from their can satellite. Their successful primary and secondary missions helped them earn the nod of the judges composed of Philippine Space Science Education Program (PSSEP) Focal Person Dr. Rogel Mari Sese, Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) Weather Forecaster, Robert Badrina, and University of the Philippines Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute Assistant Professor, Engr. Percival Magpantay.

Having a national space agency is inevitable. This is the belief that the Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) holds into as they mold local talents in the field of space science through its activities under the Philippine Space Science Education Program (PSSEP).
The PSSEP, which began way back in 2004, aims to create awareness among students on career opportunities in space science to address skill shortages and industry needs. With the recent efforts and developments in the establishment of a Philippine space program, the PSSEP’s role has become vital as ever.
“Space is not a luxury anymore. It is now a necessity for a country to dwell in space related matters. Every nation benefits from space technologies that’s why the Philippines should inevitably pursue space efforts for its own development,” said Dr. Rogel Mari Sese who heads the National Space Development Program (NSDP and the PSSEP.
