PUTRAJAYA, March 31 20126 (Thursday):

Robotics Competition STaROC, the inaugural competition organized by Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah Kelab Taha Robotics Club (STaROC) was held at SAS in conjunction with Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah (SAS) Science and Mathematics week. With the assistance from a robotic education centre, Little Botz Academy, the STAROC robotics competition receives participation from primary and secondary school area around Putrajaya as well as residential schools in Malaysia.

STaROC Robotics Competition is the highlight of the week in conjunction with science and mathematics week at SAS. The program was inaugurated by Professor Sahrim Ahmad (DekanFakulti Science and Technology) from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.

 

Also present at the same event were representatives from Tabung Haji, Dato ‘Adi Azuan Abdul Ghani, Chief Operating Officer and representatives from local universities such as UTeM, UiTM, UPM and UniMAP. More than 500 people have flooded the Main Hall of Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah in conjunction with the closing ceremony.

The program is organized through the strategic cooperation between the Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah with Lembaga Tabung Haji and the support and guidance of Little Botz Academy, is expected to give a multiplier effect to the government’s efforts to increase public awareness about the importance of science, technology and innovation in education. Tabung Haji exhibition not only highlights the THIJARI new application that is available through the apple store and google play but they also prove that exposure to the pilgrimage can be delivered through interactive methods using robotics. It is hoped that this kind of thinking can be applied to not limit technology to the gadgets and computers but foster a culture of science and innovation in everyday life.

The program received good cooperation from several universities such as UKM, UTeM, UiTM, UPM and exhibition organized by UniMAP with robotics and the latest technology that is the result of local research. Such programs could also serves as a platform to sharing the scientific knowledge, technology, and innovation to students in particular.

More encouraging program organized by Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah also give exposure to students and teachers during the day with various activities that are interactive. Science and technology exhibition can encourage students to cultivate an interest in STEM to life.

 

STaROC robotic competition was participated by more than 20 groups of participants. The match of two categories, namely ‘tug-of-war’ involving primary students while category ‘autonomous sumo’ involving secondary school students. What’s inspire us the most is that the competition was fully organised by the STaROC club members with the guidance of their Robotics Club teacher , Mr Shahrizan and mentors from Little Botz Academy.

SAS and Lembaga Tabung Haji deserves praise and recognition for their success in spreading the awareness and achieving the objectives of the program to give students exposure to educational robotics in line with their science and mathematics week’s theme “Synthesizing ideas and extracting knowledge in STEM (Science. Technologi.Engineering.Mathematic).

FLLCAST – First Lego League Cast Partnership with Little Botz™ Academy

NEWS UPDATE: Little Botz™ Academy is pleased to announce its new strategic partnership with FLLCast, a leading community portal for First Lego League, which aims to assist students to develop further, so that we could have a better competition while introducing our students to robotics.

FIRSTLego_iconHorz_RGBTomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field.

It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s signature Core Values.
