KVC student shares her innovation project on Youth STEM Summit

4th November, 2020

KOTA KINABALU: Having a keen interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Keningau Vocational College (KVC) student Nezatul Fazlyin Zainal took the opportunity as a panellist at the Youth STEM Summit to share her innovation project with the world via a video conference on Oct 31.

Youth STEM Summit, the first virtual conference organised by Youth STEM 2030, was held from Oct 30 to Nov 1. The event received 238 individual applications from 39 countries to become panellists.

Nezatul Fazlyin is one of five panellists selected for the “Lightning Talk” session, themed “The Big Challenges”, held on Oct 31.

Speaking to Bernama, Nezatul Fazlyin, 19, said she spent about eight minutes during the video conference to explain her innovation, which, among others, aimed at educating teachers and students on how to operate and use new technology in their projects.

This includes the use of drones, robotics and three-dimensional printing, as part of efforts to equip people, especially women with vocational backgrounds in rural areas, with skills that can help further develop their potential as the Fourth Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) progresses, she said.

Nezatul Fazlyin, who is from Kampung Angan-Angan, Tenom, said that she submitted her application to participate in the conference to the organisers which are based in the United Kingdom via a one-minute video on Oct 20.

“I did not expect to be selected. I feel very excited to be able to highlight this idea. This STEM project is important because it relates to our current situation which is the age of modern technology but there are still those from rural communities who have yet to be given exposure on such a technology.

“This project has been implemented at our college, Keningau Vocational College, with my other teammates and received positive feedback. I hope it can be developed further and the use of the latest technology can be increased in the area,” said the early childhood education student.

Meanwhile, Keningau Vocational College director Johari @ Jaibet Sabin said that Nezatul Fazlyin’s achievement demonstrated the ability and commitment of the students to hone their talents and interests in various fields.

He said that Nezatul Fazlyin is one of the key members of the college’s Digital Maker Club who is also active in STEM.

“She once won a community innovation award at a hackathon competition organised by UNESCO with her other team members, apart from presenting her innovation projects at an online international conferences,” he said. –Bernama
