Think like a Girl



TECHNICOM joins the world as we celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science! We’re proud to introduce three of the many smart, strong women who led groundbreaking projects in their respective fields through our program.



DR. MARCELA SAISES is one of the project leaders behind the Iron Fortified Rice implemented by DOST-Food and Nutrition Research Institute. This innovation aims to address the high nationwide occurrence of malnutrition, especially Iron-Deficiency Anemia.


DR. MARISSA PAGLICAWAN, under DOST-ITDI, developed the Abaca Fiber-reinforced Composites, which can be used for boat applications.


DR. MERLINDA PALENCIA is the Filipina innovator behind Vigormin Home, a revolutionary product that offers a more sustainable solution to water pollution and odor control.


Dr. Palencia was also invited to speak about her innovation practices at the very first Mansmith Innovation Summit and Awards, along with other local innovators. Learn more by visiting their Facebook page, Mansmith and Fielders, Inc.
