While most of the children around the world being under lock down and deprived of learning opportunities, especially in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M) hands-on learning. While most of the teachers shy away from joining competitions that requires teamwork, Cikgu Nor Ifthitah took it as a challenge and proceed for the benefit of her students.

In her winning speech, Cikgu Ifthitah mentioned that they were first timers in robotics competitions and acknowledges that the success is very much dependent on the students coordination, parents as well as the School Principal, En Megat Fauzi bin Hj Ibrahim, in encouraging them all the way to International, despite the lockdown.

“I would like to give a big applause with respect to the enthusiasm of the players from all over the world who boldly challenged this UNIVERSAL ROBOTICS CHALLENGE without losing to Corona.”
