Congrats to Anisha Praveen Karunakaran, Daphne Douglas and Liew Jia Wen from SMK Lutong, Miri Sarawak! An All-Girls-Team!
They came up with an invention called Chillax, which is an affordable, innovative and eco-friendly alternative to cool down a house. Capitalising on the evaporative cooling effect, the solution consists of an automated sprinkler system supported by rainwater, solar panel, temperature sensor and water pump as well as a mobile app to monitor and control the entire system.
Six schools, two finalists each from Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak participated in the national finals after emerging state winners and runners up of the state-level #MyGeek-a-thon competition.
#MyGeekMovement provides learning content that complements the existing school co-curricular structure to increase the number of students opting for science stream.
“In today’s world where our young generation is very much inclined towards technology, it’s imperative to nurture their interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through creative methods. This prepares Malaysia’s students for the future job market and helps them thrive in it.
In Shell, the STEM programme modules are built around Shell’s ambition to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050.
It is great to see there are gender and racial equality in this program too!
