The circulatory, respiratory, nervous system and along with other systems of a human body, worked hard for a two-day event so called, the Science Congress. Students of the Junior Highschool (JHS) Department celebrates the theme "Science for the People: Innovation for Collective Prosperity." last February 19 to 20, in the Edgar V. Bondoc (EVB) Gymnasium.
As the pulse of the heart intensifies, as the breathing becomes quicker, as blood circulation increases, along with our bodies, the first day of the Science Congress awakes. For the first day, students of grades seven to ten gave their blood, sweat and tears, to showcase such amazing talents and such unique designs for an event that finally came back after 2 years, the Ecofashion. Each level was given specific themes, for the grades 7 and 8, they were assigned to make costumes relating to Anime and Disney respectively. Meanwhile, grade 9 students were given the theme of Superheroes and Villains. As we move on to the next level, the theme given also levels up. Grade 10 students were tasked to create a cosplay that requires a more complicated and futuristic design, a Robot. Representatives from each section are granted the chance to showcase the designs their classmates have created by walking through the runway. The models were able to give justice to the efforts done by the creative minds and skillful hands of the people behind the costumes they were wearing. Each theme was not merely just words by now, it became a reality. Although materials used are ranged from scraps of paper to various unused household materials, and certain challenges had to be faced, with the students' ability to think outside the box, the garbs created were neatly done and the models were able to neatly execute their routine. Audience of all ages were awed by the odd yet carefully crafted cheap fashion ensembles. With this, judges had a hard time choosing the winners, but a decision had to be done. Before the contest is put to an end, the winners of this year's Ecofashion were announced as follows;

Somewhere and sometime in some place here on earth, rockets or satellites are launched up to the sky, and so did the second day of the Science Congress. The Science Olympics took place on this day. Students who excelled in their Science classes were chosen by their Science teachers of each level to compete as group for the said event. (insert how many) groups faced different science-related challenges and their knowledge and skill related to the subject were put to a test. Aside from the Science Olympics, an Exhibition also occurred in the EVB Gymnasium and Science Laboratories. The exhibition included works from the Assemblage, Manipulative Games, and also the Banner Making Contest which was done before the commencement of the Science Fair. The exhibition also included the winning artworks of the students who joined the Poster Making Contest which was done right after the Ecofashion on the first day of the celebration. For the Assemblage, grades 7, 8, 9 and 10 respectively followed the themes of Digestive, Respiratory, Circulatory, and the Reproductive System. Just like the Ecofashion, assemblage must be made out of recyclable and reusable materials. After every event was accomplished, the awarding ceremony was finally held at the EVB Gymnasium.

If Science Congress were to be a phone, the battery would be the celebration, it lasted for two days. Although batteries only run for a limited time, a memory card may store memories for a long time. This time, the memory storage has no limit, because the bond, the memories and the lessons learned during the Science Congress does not only last for two days, but for a lifetime. It's one of the things technologies can't do but people can.
