Maker Mobile, a mobile workshop and a webe (Telekom Malaysia) community funded initiative, which aims to redefine learning and education nationwide, came to life with its first workshop on Robotics with 30 students from SK Putrajaya Presint 8 (1), Putrajaya.

Speaking at the event, Nazeem Nasir, Chief Marketing Officer, webe explained the role of webe community in making Maker Mobile a reality as he applauded the efforts of the project champions Chong Zhi Xiong, Rachael Francis and Nigel Sim.

He said, “Encouraging Malaysian students to take up STEM subjects is among the major challenges in education, currently facing the country – and is a global problem as well.

Projects like Maker Mobile help bridge the education gap between the more urban and rural areas and play an important role in helping to build a stronger nation of makers a reality.

“Our work with Maker Mobile has helped them empower an engaging and more inclusive learning environment.

“Maker Mobile is a clear example of what can be achieved if our community comes together to collaborate and co-create,” he said.

As the name suggests, Maker Mobile is a mobile classroom that provides STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) based workshops to students across Malaysia.

The project aims to reach out to 900 students from 30 under deserved schools across Peninsular Malaysia in 30 days.

The workshops are designed to build on a child’s natural curiosity by teaching STEM concepts through hands-on learning.

There are four (4) workshops offered – Coding, Robotics, Embedded System and App Inventing which are taught over a three-hour period.

Maker Mobile is one of the first four (4) projects shortlisted for webe community’s support this year.
