KUCHING: The Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA) presented 10 LED projectors and screens to Parent Teacher Association (PIBG) of SMK Green Road at Chief Minister’s office here today (April 15).
The school can take advantage of the facilities to demonstrate how it manages its teaching of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) classes for Form 4 and 5 students.
Since the classes began in 2020, the effort has resulted in a few noteworthy accomplishments by her students. These include serving as the national and state champions of the Young Scientist Programme 2020.
The addition of LED projectors and screens will allow for the conduct of additional STEM classes with minimal disruption.
Chairman of PIBG SMK Green Road Dr Dzulzalani Eden emphasised that not only teachers, but also parents contribute significantly to the improvement of the students’ learning environment.
“PIBG SMK Green Road is an institution that is always supportive of students who compete in STEM competitions.
“We contribute to their pocket money or assist with participation fees,” he said.
Meanwhile, SMA general manager Dr Zaidi Razak highlighted that strengthening STEM and ICT education in primary, secondary, and tertiary institutions is a strategic action under the state digital economy agenda.
“The authority has been working with MESTR since 2019 to build and support a ground swell of digital skills and talents in educational institutions to meet the demands of the state digital economy,” he said.
Receiving the equipment from Dr Zaidi Razak was deputy chairman of PIBG SMK Green Road Lee Joon Hua.
