This online press conference with the theme “F𝚒𝚡𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝙲𝚘𝚖𝚖𝚜: 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚖𝚘𝚝𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝚂𝚌𝚒𝚎𝚗𝚌𝚎 𝙹𝚘𝚞𝚛𝚗𝚊𝚕𝚒𝚜𝚖 𝙰𝚖𝚘𝚗𝚐 𝚄𝚜" was organized by the UP Biochemistry Society with the advocacy of making science journalism more fun and accessible for everyone. 

The school paper advisers and coaches Mr. Johnel Lumacao and Ms. Sheila Allong were very proud of how the students excelled in the contest despite the inconvenient and challenging new normal setup of having to do the training and practice virtually.
