Students or the youth are also given some test questions as their form of interaction to the exhibit.
Maj. Christian Uy, Group Commander of 3rd CRS, AFP, pointed-out that they are reaching-out the students in their activities because of the occurrence youth recruitments in schools that go against the government.
