Manila, Philippines – Pasisinayaan ng Department of Science and Technology (DOST) ng 12.5-foot tall 3D printed monument ni Dr. Jose P. Rizal sa Disyembre 30.
Ito ay upang bigyang pitagan ang kanyang mga nagawa hindi lamang bilang pambansang bayani kundi isang scientist.
Ang pinakamataas na 3D monument sa bansa na tatawaging “Dr. Jose P. Rizal, The Filipino Scientist” ay hango sa diseno ni Professor Jose Manuel Sicat.
“The design is inspired by studies and works of scientists, historians and artists of the DOST-National Research Council of the Philippines (DOST-NRCP), depicting the national hero as a medical scientist, an engineer/surveyor, an agriculturist, and a naturalist-environmentalist,” saad ng DOST.
Inimprenta ito ng 3D sa state-of-the-art Advanced Manufacturing Center ng DOST-Metals Industry Research and Development Center (DOST-MIRDC) gamit ang Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate (ASA).
“We are paying tribute to the many works of Dr. Jose P. Rizal especially in the field of science,” lahad naman ni DOST Secretary Fortunato T. de la Peña.
“We believe that this project is a good inspiration for our youth of today to maximize their capabilities and capacity to learning, like Dr. Rizal, there is no circumstance that could stop us from learning.” RNT/FGDC
