CITY OF NAGA, Bicol Region – Upon winning in the science and engineering fair in the US, three (3) students of the Camarines Sur High School were honored when 3 minor planets were named after them.

The students are Eugene Rivera, Joscel Kent Manzanero and Keith Russel Cadores after they won the major award at the 2018 International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) held at Pennsylvania, USA.

They grabbed the second place under ‘Energy: Physical’ category for their design and development of Solar-Tracking Arduino-Rooted Kirigami (STARK) PV Panels.

The STARK invention has a sunflower design which automatically follows sunlight and the panels close when the rains start. The students have used recycled materials for their invention.

They were awarded a certificate where the 3 minor planets are named after them and their locations and orbital plots indicated to locate them. [BicolToday.com]
