After bagging a major prize at the 2018 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), three Pinoy students — Eugene Rivera, Joscel Kent Manzanero, and Keith Russel Cadores of Camarines Sur National High School in Naga City, Camarines Sur — now have their names written in the stars, so to speak.

Three minor planets were named after the students, after their team won second place in the competition’s “Energy: Physical” category.

Their work focused on the design and development of Solar-Tracking Arduino-Rooted PV Panels. The students were selected to represented the Philippines after their performance at the 2018 National Science and Technology Fair
