The Department of Science and Technology-Science and Technology Information Institute (DOST-STII) and EdukSine, a block streaming platform, agreed to work together to promote Science and Technology (S&T) related content to a wider audience through film.
On December 12, 2022, both parties signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) which aims to strengthen and promote S&T by showcasing different programs of the DOSTv in the EdukSine website and applications.
DOSTv is the official broadcast channel of DOST that produces various programs related to department’s projects and programs, knowledge products, services, and science luminaries in the country. On the other hand, EdukSine is the only block streaming platform in the Philippines, showing films, documentaries, and other socially relevant videos that appeal to various audiences.
Some of the DOSTv programs that will be shown in EdukSine are SiyenSikat: Pinoy Popular Science Para Sa Lahat, a magazine cum reality science show that highlights the fulfillment of dreams and an expression of gratitude to DOST, and SineSiyensya, a documentary program which features compelling true-to-life stories of people benefitting from S&T, thus can be a powerful communication tool to inspire the audience to embrace science, technology, and innovation.
These DOSTv programs will air, initially, on EdukSine’s digital platforms from December 19, 2022, until December 23, 2023.
Meanwhile, other DOSTV programs like ExperTalk can still be seen on television every Sunday at 8 AM with replays on Saturdays at 8 AM and 4 PM on CNN Philippines and DOST Report every Friday, 4 PM at the DOSTv’s official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DOSTvPH and official YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/@DOSTvPH.
