PUCHONG, 24 July- Several representatives from the Institute of Advanced Technology (ITMA), led by the Head of Materials Processing and Technology Laboratory (MPLT), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Suraya Abdul Rashid were present at the “Penilaian Anugerah Pengurusan Pusat Sumber Sekolah Cemerlang Peringkat Kebangsaan (APPSSCK) 2019” event at Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Putra Perdana (SKTPP), Puchong.
This evaluation included a site visit to the Green Technology Garden which was built at SKTPP through a Knowledge Transfer Program to the community led by Dr. Suraya with Head of Functional Devices Laboratory (FDL), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Suhaidi Shafiee and Assoc. Prof. LAr. Dr. Nor Atiah Ismail from the Landscape Architecture Department, Faculty of Design and Architecture (FRSB), UPM) as well as other ITMA members.
The garden construction began on March 2019 and was divided into three sections; "Nanotechnology Corner" and "Airport Garden" at “Anjung ITMA-FRSB UPM” and "Interactive Sprinkler" at “Anjung Botani”. This garden features science, recycling, and interactive elements to attract students' interest while delivering knowledge. Through this program, ITMA-FRSB aims to help teachers develop learning and facilitation methods (PdPC) for students outside of the classroom besides the main library called “Ujana Ilmu” with an airport theme.
ITMA-FRSB is very pleased with the implementation of this program and wishes that this small contribution will benefit the teachers in teaching and students’ learning in general besides providing value-added to the evaluation process particularly. We hope that this garden can be preserved and encourage students' interest, especially in science subjects.
