InterAksyon.com reports that the research of Mark Borris Aldonza, a 17-year-old Biology student from the Far Eastern University, "is the lone Filipino to make it to the regional finals of the Google Science Fair 2012." According to the report, Google launched the "global online science competition for teenagers launched by the search giant last year." Aldonza joins 89 other students from around the world who have also been named as finalists.

 

The report revealed: "Aldonza’s research zeroes in on how compounds from a certain plant species known to be a ’pest plant’ in the Philippines could help improve the burning longevity of coal and at the same time reduce the amount of harmful gases it emits."

 

According to the InterAksyon.com, the Top 15 finalists and the winner of the special Science in Action award will be announced on June 6. They will then be "flown out to Google's headquarters in California in July for the celebratory finalist event and for the last round of judging, which will be conducted by a panel of renowned scientists and innovators." The report also noted: "The Grand Prize winner for this year's search will receive a National Geographic expedition, a $50,000 scholarship grant from Google, a personal LEGO color mosaic, and a chance for an internship either at Google, Lego, or CERN."
