7 March 2020 - The Institute of Advanced Technology (ITMA) has successfully organized a community project called the “Science Knowledge Transfer and Charity Program” at Rumah Bakti Al Kausar located in Section 4 Bandar Baru Bangi. The Rumah Bakti is a home to 30 asnaf students and orphans aged from 8 to 17 years old. The main purpose of the program is to inculcate an interest in science among the students. In addition, this community program is also part of the ITMA's efforts to provide assistance and donations to ease their burden.
The program began with a welcome speech from Chairman of the Program as well as the Head of Functional Device Laboratory, Associate Prof. Dr. Suhaidi Shafie. Director of ITMA, Prof. Dr. Mohd Nizar Hamidon was then officiated the ceremony.
The participants were then briefed on Universiti Putra Malaysia and Institute of Advanced Technology by Mrs. Rosiah Osman. The program continued with an explanation of "Solar Technology" by Mr. Mohd Ruzaimi Ariffin. Participants practically assembled the electrical component to obtain electricity from solar panels to turn on the light bulb. Dr. Intan Helina Hasan further presented on the science, research and challenges of future research.
The program ended with a closing speech by Mr. Abu Bakar, on behalf of the management of Rumah Bakti Al Kausar. ITMA then presented the certificates, gifts and financial donations to Rumah Bakti representative and each student. We hope that this effort will benefit all students in particular and the Rumah Bakti in general and will continue in the future.
