Team STAN LOONA, a group of students from Father Saturnino Urious University-Bp. Pueblos Senior High School, will be one of two teams (the other school being a team from Philippine Science High School) representing the Philippines at the upcoming Science Castle ASEAN 2020, a conference hosted by Leave a Nest-Singapore.
The team is comprised of Urians, Rophe Dea Lynzekieth Ampo, Shiena Marie C. Celedena, Gem C. Estopito, and Mariez Thresha G. Umpad, and team leader Bernard Montemor. Their advisor is Lloyd Arvin M. Malaluan.
Team STAN LOONA’s research is entitled, “Subcritical Carbon Dioxide fluid extraction of Copra (Cocos nucifera linn.) oil.” The team’s research focuses on identifying the dominant polar and non-polar molecules in copra, a commonly known staple and food additive, and its retention.
The team’s name caught the attention of Filipino Orbits, as “STAN LOONA” is a phrase popularized by the group’s fandom.
We wish Team STAN LOONA all the best of luck!
