SciPol is one of NISMED’s extension projects. It had its initial screening over the same TV station on August 2008 every Friday at 1:30 pm. The program was conceptualized and developed through the joint efforts of the UP College of Science and the UP NISMED in Diliman and the government station NBN 4.

Dr. Merle C. Tan, UP NISMED Director, spearheaded the project while Dr. Rhodora V. Azanza, former Dean of the College of Science in Diliman, headed the team of technical script writers. Vizmalou E. Bonalos and Dr. Josefina Patron of NBN 4 lead the production team. Rosemarie Manalansang produced and directed different episodes. Armando Cos co-directed the production. Ma. Lourdes S. Agad and Lolita M. Mondigo of NISMED’s Audiovisual Group coordinated the activities of the project.
