April 2, 2016 - Functional Devices Laboratory, Institute of Advanced Technology (ITMA), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and Sekolah Menengah Sri Al-Amin Bangi had jointly organized a young scientist program namely ‘Program Saintis Muda’ which was held in the school’s main hall. This event was done in collaboration with IEEE EDS under EDS-ETC Program which enables EDS chapter members to visit local schools to engage young students in the field of electrical engineering.
There are about thirty students participated in the program. The program was divided into three sessions. The first session was for ice-breaking where the students enhanced their intelligence by playing puzzle blocks. In the second session, the students utilized the easy-to-use Elenco Snap Circuits® kits which gave them hands-on experience in assembling a series of electric circuits for some electronic applications. In the third session, the students had to design a water sensor circuit with the guidance from the facilitators. Besides the three sessions, there was an exhibition on solar panel power generation.
All the students seemed to be excited and satisfied with the program. The program ended with certificate give-away ceremony and a photo-session.
