The trio of science students was part of the 12-member Team Philippines at Intel ISEF sponsored by Gokongwei Brothers Foundation (GBF). The delegation includes Iloilo City’s Maria Isabel Layson who discovered properties in aratiles fruits that can possibly cure diabetes.
The foundation feted the 12 young Filipino scientists upon their return to the Philippines in May. Layson delivered a speech on behalf of the 12 students, thanking their sponsors for helping them prepare, compete, and learn at the event organized by the Society for Science & the Public.
