MHB Art of Science Programme 2014

8 March 2014
MHB rolled out first round of its ‘MHB Art of Science’ programme for year 2014 with 116 Primary 6 students from Sekolah Kebangsaan Bandar Seri Alam (SKBSA), Johor.

‘MHB Art of Science’ is targeted at young hearts and minds and aims to stimulate their interest in the field of creative science. This annual CSR programme was jointly organised by MHB and Petrosains Malaysia.

The programme began with an ice breaking session between the students, MHB staff volunteers and Petrosains representatives. ‘MHB Art of Science’ was initiated to expose the students to amazing yet simple concepts of creative science; and that it was a good platform for the teachers and students to access alternative resources for teaching and learning. This innovative science programme will spark young minds to be more curious and creative. The students were engaged in workshops that challenged them to make the loudest ‘mini honkers’. Each student actively participated and gave their best effort using all the props provided by the organisers. Another workshop challenged students to create rainbows – again with only the props provided. The grouped students were very enthusiastic to show off their creative capabilities.

Many participants enjoyed the Petrosains team demonstrations on the cryogenic (super-cold) impressive and unique characteristics of liquid nitrogen. The programme ended with an easy ‘pop quiz’ on MHB. The students were excited to answer all the questions and were happy with the opportunity to learn science with their friends in a new and different setting outside their science lab and classroom.
