Some may think he is a boy wonder, some may say he is a genius and for some, he is a science wizard, but we all know one thing for sure… He is a CHAMPION. Are you ready to meet him?

Tristan Benedict T. Madarang, the 10-year old science wizard of Balanga Elementary School is hailed champion in the recent National Children’s Science Congress held in La Vista Pansol Resort, Calamba, Laguna. He is really a science genius, no doubt about that, because prior to this prestigious contest, he bagged the first place award in the Division and Regional Level Science Quiz Bee 4 respectively, which made him the representative of Region III in the national level. Being the champion for the National Level National Children’s Science Congress is simply the cherry on top of all his success!

I have got the chance and the pleasure of interviewing our champion, Tristan. So let’s get to know him more…
