IRRI entry places third in biotechnology fair

The IRRI High-CO2 Facility: A new APP for Climate Change Studies, an entry at the Biotechnology Fun Fair presentation contest on agricultural biotechnology innovations, won third place.

The small CO2 chamber that contained rice seedlings—a teen category entry—elicited students’ curiosity and received 80% of votes.

The event, held on 29 November 2013, was part of the Philippines’ 9th National Biotechnology Week, which aims to encourage advocacy of science and technology, presenting agricultural biotechnology to primary and secondary school students in an entertaining and interactive approach.
