KLESF 2015

 

Bring your kids down to the Mines International Exhibition & Convention Centre for this weekend's Kuala Lumpur Engineering and Science Fair (‪#‎KLESF2015‬) for a great and fun time. They will get to try out many of the fun and exciting activities available there. I gave a talk to the crowd there today on the importance of teaching kids science using the STEM approach and later on took time to engage them at the Astronautic Technology Sdn Bhd booth promoting the ‪#‎Ardusat‬ satellite kits in which you will be able to code your experiments or projects and send them into space. How cool is that? Do visit www.ardusat.my for more info. So grab this opportunity and head down to the Mines!!!

 




Rocketry in Seremban



30th October 2015: We were down in Dewan Majlis Perbandaran Seremban today for the 8th Anniversary celebrations of Malaysia's manned spaceflight mission. We demonstrated to the audience on how to build a simple rocket by using everyday tools and materials you can find in your kitchen. For the grand hurrah, we launched a rocket into the southern skies and retrieved the rocket when it landed safely onto the Seremban town field. The objective of the event is to promote science and we're glad to do our bit for society. Catch us tomorrow at the Mines Exhibition Hall for a round of Space Talks at 12noon. See you there...

Sim Visit to AACE

29th October 2015: We conducted our second simulator centre visit this year to the facilities located at the Asian Aviation Centre of Excellence - AACE to the delight of 40 kids from Sekolah Kebangsaan Leftenan Adnan, Kajang. They also got a tour of the engine room and several safety training rooms. The kids were thrilled as everyone got a chance to manually fly their state of the art A320 flight simulator which included full motion with the added turbulence to make it an experience they won't forget. We hope that they're inspired to choose a career in science or aviation and we owe our deepest gratitude to the wonderful team at AACE. Thank you again for making our dreams come true...
