This iReport is part of an assignment:
World First Vex robotics Lab in Malaysia.
ROBOTICS LEARNING (M) SDN BHD has built " First-ever Vex robotics Lab in Malaysia with state of art facilities to design , created and build the robots under training workshops. It is called world first Vex robotics Lab in Malaysia.
The Robotics Workshop provides secondary school students from the age of 14 to 16 years in the Parliament of Pagoh an exposure to the world of robotics. The two-day workshop gave the students the opportunity of experiencing hands-on project on building, testing and competing with their own robots based on the VeX Training Kit. The workshop also helped the students to cultivate their soft skills in terms of teamwork, creative thinking, systematic planning, time management, and enhancing problem solving skills.
Realising the timely need of catching up with the Developed World and the increasing importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and ICT (Information and Communication Technologies), Educational Robotics classroom-based training and curriculum provides an opportunity of incorporating enjoyment in learning of STEM subjects and the Arts.
Robotics Learning works with the world famous VEX educational robotics kits from Innovation First Inc. in the USA. Used by secondary schools throughout the world, the vex educational robotics are used by all ages from about 10 years and above and truly help student master a whole of skills including both STEM as well as a range of soft skills such as creative and innovative thinking, team work, systematic planning and communications skills. VEX organises robotics competitions throughout the world.
ROBOTICS LEARNING (M) SDN BHD is to provide and support all students and teachers with the world’s leading educational robots and educational solutions. They created the company after realising that educational robotics is being shown to bring students a variety of strong benefits. Experiences in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand as well as in Asia are demonstrating that students’ use of educational robotics improves their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills as well as strengthening a variety of soft skills including team-building, lateral thinking, communications skills and problem-solving. They would like students in Southeast Asia to be at the forefront of such developments and in doing so improve and strengthen the human capital in Southeast Asia.
They have vision to enable all young people, from all parts of the country, to have access to the world’s leading and most relevant educational experiences. And in doing this they envision Southeast Asia continuing to grow and thrive as a modern hi-technology country with full employment and ample career opportunities for all young S.E. Asians.
Lab is situated at:
100-1.003, The School, Block J,
Jaya One, No 72A, Jalan Universiti,
