Hello everybody! We are the Young Intellectual Property Advocates (YIPA) serving as the guardians of intellectual property rights for the students of the Philippine Science High School - Southern Mindanao Campus. We are working with the Innovation Technology and Support Office (ITSO) of our school. We want you to be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor — that is, your literary works and inventions!
How do we do this, you ask? Why? By assisting you in applying for intellectual property protection of course! We’ll guide you through the basics: the importance of intellectual property rights and how to obtain them.
You may find these publication materials useful, designated by a code on their top left:
P1A: Provides information about the steps you should do to apply for a copyright protection or a patent through ITSO-SMC’s help
P1B: Teaches you how to fill in the Google Forms we have created for your copyright and/or patent application submissions.
P2: Informs you about the documents that you will need to submit when applying for copyright, patent, or both.
P3A: Guides you on how to conduct a patent search and how to determine patentable inventions.
P3B: Helps you determine the things you can apply a copyright for.
(Note: If you have already complied with the needed requirements for filing for intellectual property protection, you need not file again.)
Brought to you by: Joseph John Gonzales (Grade 12- Farad), Mary Catherine Therese Lemana (Grade 12- Hertz), Josh Ahiezer Sexcion (Grade 12- Hertz), and Pauline Grace Yuste (Grade 12- Hertz)

“I'm committed to create and share new information. Hopefully my peers in Pisay also grab every opportunity they can get to share knowledge to the world.”
This was expressed by Chemistry teacher, Research 3 Unit head, and Research 2 and 3 adviser Le Grande O. Dolino pertaining to not just one but three of his research works published in Thomson Reuters/Scopus indexed journals, namely: Journal of Chemical Education, Philippine Journal of Science, and Foundations of Chemistry.
Mr. Dolino published a paper in August 14, 2020 titled “Insights from Teaching Chemistry Writing Online” in Journal of Chemical Education (https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.jchemed.0c00832). His research studied how teachers can better carry out writing-related activities such as laboratory reports in Chemistry and in other science subjects online.
He, in collaboration with Dr. Doris B. Montecastro and Fr. Antonio M. Basilio, likewise put out the research “Low-cost Recovery of Bromelain Solids from Industrial Pineapple Peel, Pulp, and Core Wastes Using Ethanolic Cashew Leaf Polyphenol” on September 2020 in Philippine Journal of Science (https://philjournalsci.dost.gov.ph/publication/regular-issues/next-issue/98-vol-149-no-3-september-2020/1210-low-cost-recovery-of-bromelain-solids-from-industrial-pineapple-peel-pulp-and-core-wastes-using-ethanolic-cashew-leaf-polyphenol). This study introduced an alternative procedure in getting Bromelain solids from pineapple core and pulp which could be beneficial to pineapple farmers.
Prior to joining Pisay, Mr. Dolino also published an article in Foundations of Chemistry in 2017 (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10698-017-9272-9). This study elucidated the distinction between chemistry and other allied sciences.
Campus Director Jonald P. Fenecios lauded him for his achievements saying, “Research publication is truly one great leap in human resource development. That is why it is one of my thrusts as your new Director. I would like to call on for more teachers to do the same.”
About the published faculty:
Le Grande Dolino obtained his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Ateneo de Davao University and his Master of Science in Applied Mathematics from the University of Southeastern Philippines. His main research interests include chemistry education particularly in the transfer and development of student research skill.
