Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Faculty of Engineering : This year on September, 27th , 2016, Faculty of Engineering UPM had organized a science fair event for school kids. The IEEE CAS Society Malaysia has joined the Robotic Club UPM to open the booth at the event.
The student volunteers introduced the school kids about robots and demonstrated how solar cells work to power the robot. Through this activity, they also took the opportunity to introduce school kids to the earliest world known scientists Hebattullah bin Malaka Al-Baghdadi and Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi (Father of Modern Algebra and Algorithm).
The theme for the IEEE CASS booth activity was “Science is worth exploring! Go out there my little sunshine! With the biggest dreams in the world!”. These school kids had shown great interests in science while doing activity. The science fair is definitely a good platform for kids giving them a great opportunity to learn about science outside of books and homework.
