 A 12.5 feet tall 3D-printed Dr. Jose Rizal monument will soon to rise at the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Plaza on Rizal Day, December 30.

In this year's 125th commemoration of Dr. Jose Rizal martyrdom, the department will pay tribute not as a replica of the current monument at the Rizal Park, but it will showcase Rizal as a scientist.

The monument would be the first in the country to create a complex and big 3D-printed structure monument that will highlight available high-end technology of the Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMCen).

The man behind the 21st century creation is Professor Manuel Sicat of the University of the Philippines, College of Fine Arts. The monument is made of Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate (ASA), with reinforced steel inside that can withstand winds of 330kph and a 7.0magnitude earthquake.

"We are paying tribute to the many works of Dr. Jose P. Rizal especially in the field of science," said 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," he added.
