According to Philippine News Agency (PNA), a web-based newswire service of the Philippines government, around 180 students of Senator Renato “Compañero” Cayetano Memorial Science and Technology High School (SRCC) participated in the event.

The idea originated from the Taguig City Education Office and the school’s robotics team, which had won gold medals at international robotics tilts.

The ceremony was live-streamed on Facebook as mass gatherings are still prohibited as per the country’s Covid-19 protocol.

As per the PNA report, the ceremony featured four robots made of recycled materials and was operated by remote controls to represent the students.
