17 OCTOBER, Puchong- Institute of Advanced Technology (ITMA) has organized a program to promote science among students called "Kem Eksplorasi Sains: Inspirasi Kampus Putra 2019/2020" at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Puchong Perdana (SMKPP), Puchong.
About 90 students and six Science teachers participated in the program. The program began with a welcome speech from the Principal, Mr Md Zin Ja'afar, followed by a motivational talk delivered by three invited speakers including Dr. Nurzatulshima Kamarudin, Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Educational Studies UPM (FPP), Dr. Intan Helina Hassan, ITMA Research Officer and Mr. Muhammad Asnawi Mohd Kusaimi, ITMA Master's student. Among the topics covered are "STEM Creativity in Conservation of Nature", "Research is your Future" and "F.U.T.U.R.E." In this first series, students are emphasized on the importance of science in life and also promoting the "Avoid Single Use Plastic" campaign to support the FPP Green Technology Program in collaboration with the Yayasan Hijau Negara.
The program was also graced with words of encouragement from the Director of the ITMA, Prof. Dr. Mohd Nizar Hamidon and a session of exchanging certificates of collaboration and tokens of appreciation as a symbol of cooperation between ITMA and SMKPP. It is hoped that this good cooperation will continue in the 2nd series program which was planned to be held early next year. Hopefully, this effort will inspire as many students as possible to study science and understand the importance of science in life.
