Similar to last year, MCCID students once again visited the annual Computer Manufacturers, Dealers and Distributors Association of the Philippines held at SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Saturday, December 4, 2010. But what’s different in this year’s event is that students from Tiaong, Quezon and City of San Fernando, Pampanga campuses joined the students from the Cubao Main Campus.
Dubbed “This is I.T!”, this year’s COMDDAP Expo 2010 showcases various consumer electronics with special focus on laptops, netbooks, ipods, bigger projectors and anti-virus softwares. Many students received various give aways such as ball pens, magazines, bags and other goodies.
A short lecture on designing 3D structures and buildings which will be placed as permanent fixtures in Google Earth was given by Mr. Salvador Lastrilla, COMDDAP Vice President and 3D Philippines Initiative Group. Google Philippines installed a big flat touch screen which shows Google Earth together with famous Philippine landmarks. Students were delighted to learn how to design a 3D edifice.
