In Indonesia, they are heavily dependent on math and science-based however, young people's interest in the said subjects is lacking dramatically. Following this, Dr. Yohanes Surya, a physicist who encourages a generation of students to excel in science and math, and pursue professions drawing on these skills to help Indonesia progress as a nation. In the same manner, one of the greatest predicaments for the Philippine educational system is the same lacking interests and excellence of Filipino students in Math and Science. This was clearly manifested in the report of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in 2018 which showed Filipino students ranking the lowest among 79 countries in mathematics, science, and reading.
Furthermore, Dr. Surya's creative methodology and boundless leadership created an organization, a research institute, and a university, all focused on elevating Indonesia's youth as scientists, mathematicians, discoverers, and leaders. Hence, this model of learning may also be applied in the Philippine education system as an anchor of professional and human development.
