SYNOPSIS

Robotics is a multi-disciplinary subject which combines electronics, computer science and mechanics, among many other subjects as well as 21st century workplace skills like collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving. It is not taught in the main school curriculum, however, a lot of people still pursue it as a hobby and a fun way to discover science. In this workshop, we will teach robotics and coding using LEGO EV3 Mindstorms and VEX IQ robotics kits. Participants will learn how to design, build and program a robot and finally compete in a mini robot contest.

• Learn robot kit hardware
    - LEGO EV3 Mindstorms (3rd generation LEGO robots)        
    - VEX IQ

• Learn coding
    - LEGO  EV3  Mindstorms  programming  using  National Instruments LabView-based software
    - VEX IQ using ROBOTC

• Learn 21st Century soft-skills
    - Collaboration and teamwork        
    - Creativity and imagination
    - Critical thinking                              
    - Problem solving

• The workshop assumes participants have keen interest in electronics or robotics
• Participants recommended to bring laptops with install permissions


BIODATA OF SPEAKER

Mr. Mickey Koh graduated from the National University of Singapore with an honours degree in Mechanical and Production Engineering in 2000. He was selected to be a pioneer member of a technology transfer team for a waferfab start-up in Singapore for Philips Semiconductors, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and the Economic Development Board of Singapore (EDB) in June 1999 and spent two years in Nijmegen, Holland acquiring semiconductor engineering skills. He led work improvement teams which generated patents and was recognized by Spring Singapore with the MultiMillion Dollar Project Award 2003 and the Eureka Award 2004.

Upon his return to Malaysia after 35 years of being abroad, he noticed anurban-rural divide in terms of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education and co-foundered Applied Kinetics to use robotics and coding to promote STEM subjects and problem-solving skills to school children in the Central Spine region. Applie  Kinetics was selected by Cradlefund as a promising start-up to  participate in the Coach & Grow Programme Season 4 2017 with a RM30, 000 business coaching grant.

He has coached students to win the global Google Lunar XPRIZE Moonbots challenge in 2015 and 2017 as well as a gold and a silver medal at the Japan Design and Innovation Exposition 2017. Besides raising awareness in STEM education, he also does corporate team building, innovation and problem-solving workshops.

He is also ex-military and currently does war-simulation software testing in his spare time.


NOTE:

- Limited to 20 team only
- 1 TEAM : 1 Adult AND 1 Child (10 years old and above)
