Science and technology is the key factor that thrust the world forward. Thus, in this technological era, it is crucial for everyone to arm themselves with scientific knowledge. Malaysia government has always been focusing in the development of science related field in this country and has carried out a lot of initiatives to instill interest in science among youths. However, the number of students entering science stream after Form 3 is still decreasing year by year in this country. Thus, to supplement government’s initiatives, SMK (A) Nibong Tebal has held a science exhibition in conjunction with its Festival Kluster 2017.
The science exhibition was held on 8th of March, 2017. 5 representatives from IEEE USM SB have been invited to attend the event as technological project exhibitors under the sponsor of IEEE CAS Malaysia Chapter. They are Lin Jian Wen, Lim Xiu Xian, Chin Yoong Wei, Thasvindren and Vivian Voon Li Sin. Projects exhibited are Infinity Mirror, Memory Game, Dancing Machine and Hologram Projector.
During the exhibition, visitors have been explained about how the projects function. Also, they could play with those projects so that they could understand more. For example, visitors were given chances to experience the DIY Dancing Machine and understand how capacitive capacitor were implemented in the projects.
The exhibition ended at 2 pm with speech of appreciation by headmaster of SMK (A) Nibong Tebal.
