Qualified senior high school (SHS) students are set to kick off the incoming academic year with to-be-acquired learning during the two-week long Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) workshop-competition Dagitab, powered by University of the Philippines Engineering Radio Guild (UP ERG), starting on September 3.
Dagitab consists of a series of interactive lectures and workshops centered on logic and circuits, programming, and robotics. Registration is free but already closed on August 9 after being open for two weeks. The team formation will follow a four-member composition coming from NCR, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, and winning teams will secure cash prizes.
Out of 153 shortlisted applicants across the country, only 40 will participate after excelling at the virtual assessment which ended on August 20. These final participants ranked Top 10 per region mentioned.
Promoting EEE Field to Future Engineers
Dagitab aims to introduce SHS students to the EEE field as they are eyeing for careers to take. Studying EEE will offer great opportunities and will be beneficial with the current technologically advancing world. After expressing interest in the EEE field, these students may choose to continue this path.
Developing Connections through Fun Learning
Only students from Luzon participate in previous Dagitab implementations due to the event’s physical limitations. This year’s virtual Dagitab overcomes this exclusivity by accommodating students across the country and following new assessment and team formation guidelines. Aside from exposing students to EEE, Dagitab also serves as an avenue for participants to create a network with people whom they share the same interest with since each team will be coming from each of the four region categories.
Staying True to the Organization’s Mandate
UP ERG is a socio-academic organization based in UP Diliman Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute that seeks to give back to the community. Through one of its major events, Dagitab, the organization guarantees the EEE community a new generation of engineers.
