The Los Baños Science Community Foundation, Inc. (LBSCFI) steering committee decided to move SyenSaya 2014 from August 6-8 to September 10-12 after assessing the damage of typhoon Glenda last July 15. Moving SyenSaya to a later date will give more time for the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB), the host institution, to fully repair some facilities and clear the debris within the venue.
Wonderama, an interactive science learning exhibit, will be held at the Copeland Hall of UPLB during the three-day festival. This exhibit will be participated in by most of the members of LBSCFI. A techno forum on the hydrometeorological profile and disaster preparedness of Los Baños is scheduled on September 11 at the UPLB’s CEC (Continuing Education Center) auditorium.
