RAC19 National Level
September 18 - September 19
In support of MDEC #mydigitalmaker movement and MOE’s initiatives to transform Malaysian youth from digital users to producers in the digital economy, Cytron Technologies – rero EDUteam will continue with our initiatives to bring robotics and coding to the masses.
In 2019, rero EDUteam will host the first ever rero Educators Conference to gather teachers who are actively involved in rero robotics and coding programmes. The conference serves as a platform for teachers/schools to share experiences and explore ideas for collaboration. During the conference, training will also be provided to further equip and empower the teachers.
In March and April, rero EDUteam will visit each state in Malaysia to conduct competition briefing and free workshop for teachers who are new to this platform. There will be two tracks, namely Arduino-Maker UNO track and rero Robotics track. Teachers will also be provided with training resources to coach their students. RAC state level competitions will be held in July, followed by national level competition in September, and finally ASEAN/international level, which will be held in November alongside Kuala Lumpur Engineering and Science Fair, KLESF’19.
Aims and Objectives:
The overall aim of this programme is to enhance interest in STEM education by introducing robotics and coding to students. Our objectives are as follows:-
- To introduce robotics and coding to more students.
2. To train teachers and student leaders to be certified instructors/facilitators.
3. To provide students with access to robotics kit and education.
4. To provide opportunities for more students to participate in robotics and coding competitions.
