WITH the objective of developing problem solving and critical thinking skills among Malaysian youths, SEGi College Penang’s School of Engineering, Information Technology and Allied Health Sciences organised the Science Discovery Day 2016.
Themed ‘First Among the Best’, the recent event at the campus drew some 200 students from five secondary schools, namely SMK Tinggi Bukit Mertajam, SMK Convent Green Lane, SMK Bagan Jaya, SMK Jalan Damai and SMK Tun Hussein Onn.
The students were introduced to the various science disciplines via five game stations.
There was a Biology and Medical Lab station known as ‘Detector Bone’, an Engineering station called ‘Morse Code Translator’, an ICT station, a Chemistry station and a Physics station.
Besides being tested on fundamental and technical knowledge, they also learnt various skills ranging from building a mechanical car to investigating a murder case.
They also discovered new concepts and techniques in science such as fingerprint detection and ICT components.
The participants had to complete all the games and collect points from each station.
The teams with the highest scores emerged triumphant to take home attractive prizes, souvenirs and certificates of participation.
The top three places went to SMK Convent Green Lane, SMK Jalan Damai and SMK Bagan Jaya.
This exciting event was fully organised by the lecturers and students of the School of Engineering, IT and Allied Health Sciences.
