Description

Intel ASPIRE Minds Innovation Space Challenge Workshop

The inaugural Intel ASPIRE Minds Innovation Space Challenge Workshop will be to introduce the fundamental concepts of computer programming and electronics with the theme “Drive to the Future, Safely”.

Is your school or college up for the challenge?

In the hands-on workshop, students will be taking a guided tutorial on making a self driving car along with a programming course in Scratch or C++.

Post-Challenge

Participants are encouraged to use their newly acquired STEM knowledge and programming capabilities to support their innovation projects to enter the World Young Inventors Exhibition (WYIE) @ITEX, Kuala Lumpur and the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (IISEF), Pittsburgh, USA in May 2018.

How are we different?

Our focus is on engaging the hardest to reach youth with our cornerstone partners, INTEL and MINDS as well as other multi-sector partnerships to deliver in the most remote parts of Malaysia, to ensure all youth can have quality experiences in STEM. Our partnership with INTEL will ensure our programmes remain relevant to the needs of youth and of the STEM sector. Through MINDS network members of university student populations, we will be able to deliver face-to-face hours of high impact, evidence based STEM programmes developed with INTEL each year. Our inaugural Innovation Space Challenge Workshop programme is to advance digital literacy supported by syllabus developed with the Intel Makers Movement and MIT Scratch. We plan to continue our focus on breaking barriers to STEM through other novel national outreach programmes for indigenous people (orang asli) youth, girls and at-risk youth, through a STEM Maker Mobile unit.
