28 & 29th November 2015: We were down in Bali for the Asia Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF2015) Water Rocket Competition as technical observers to their annual rocketry challenge organised by the Japanese Space Agency (JAXA). 14 countries from the Asia Pacific region qualified for the finals with Malaysia sending three teams. The participants had to design their rockets according to the stipulated requirements with the team from Thailand beating the rest of the competition in the Target category. We're glad to be a part of this fantastic and prestigious event and look forward to next year's competition. We had a great time and hope the kids had fun too.

22nd November 2015. Our Head of Academic, Mohd Yusfi Md Yusop gave a Career Talk to over 200 students from 10 different schools in the USM Kubang Kerian hall. The event was organised by MDeC to motivate the students to consider their future in the field of Science and Technology. I'm sure Yusfi inspired them into the right direction. Great job!!!

18th November 2015: I gave a career talk to students of SMAASZA, Kuala Terengannu to promote opportunities available for them in the ICT sector. There was also a robotics exhibition by Dr Engku Fadzli Hassan from UniSZA to showcase his research and products on artificial intelligence and drones. The event was organised by MDeC as part of their STEM on Wheels Fair 2015 Terengganu edition to promote science to school children. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Cik Fazida and En. Ahmed Sya from MDeC for the opportunity to get up and close with the kids just before their school hols which begins tomorrow.

15th November 2015: We were in Penang last Sunday to conduct 2 rocketry workshops for participants during the Penang International Science Fair at the SPICE Arena. We taught them how to build their own rockets by using the STEM approach and everyone had fun launching their rockets. We would like to thank MDeC for inviting us to interact with the general public in their effort to promote science.
