I feel very honored to be invited to become the industry technical judge for Shell’s STEM School Geek-a-thon Competition, which was held in my hometown, Bintulu.
10 teams of students of different academic levels were taking part in this competition. They had to come out with creative solutions that incorporate arduino and android applications to solve common domestic and environmental problems and try making the world a better place to live in.
My main role was to check out their prototype, especially the coding that they wrote; and making sure that it is both functional and without plagiarism. Overall, most the projects were really cool and creative!
At the end of the competition, 2 teams were chosen to represent their school to take part in state-level competition in Kuching in 2 months time. I wish the students well, and hope that they will continue to uphold their passion and dreams. Can’t wait to see what they can achieve in coming years!
