Collaboration between KLT and Cytron Technologies

Kolej Laila Taib (KLT) collaborated with Cytron Technologies, a Penang-based tech company, to conduct robotics and coding training for its students and also teachers from nearby schools. This outreach campaign is a joint effort between Cytron and KLT in support of the national #mydigitalmaker movement which aims to transform Malaysian youth from digital users to producers in the digital economy.

On 17th May 2019, twenty-six KLT students attended a 3-hour introductory workshop conducted by trainers from Cytron Technologies. During the workshop, they gained hands-on experience learning to program rero:micro robot using Microsoft Makecode Editor.

rero:micro robot, designed and manufactured by Cytron Technologies, is an affordable educational robot that is especially designed to encourage beginners to learn coding in a fun and easy manner. It comes with a game track and a 10-lesson booklet with step-by-step guide, fun facts and coding challenges.

The following day, KLT hosted 22 schools teachers from around Sibu, Sarikei, Mukah and even Kapit for RAC’19 Competition Briefing and Workshop for Teachers. RAC, which stands for RERO Annual Championship,  is a robotics and coding competition run by Cytron Technologies in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC). Besides attending this workshop, the teachers are further equipped with modules and resources to train their students. RAC’19 Sarawak state level competition is scheduled to take place on 18th July 2019, followed by national level in September and international level in November.

With this collaboration, KLT hopes to encourage more students to pursue further education in STEM related fields.

QS Department’s site visit

A group of 24 students and one lecturer from QS department visited a construction site along Jalan Ling Kai Cheng on 17/05/2019 (Friday). The main objective was to allow the students to develop a greater understanding of how construction technology theory was out into practice through visiting a real time construction project. The site visit was led by Project Manager, Mr Wong and Mr Teu, the site supervisor. The site was developed and constructed by Fabulous Enterprise Sdn. Bhd and comprised of 28 units of 3-storeys shophouses and one unit of 5-storeys showhouse.

According to Mr. Teu, the ground floor of the 5-storey showhouse is 18 feet height and has minimum column design as compared to normal design. This situation thus, led to application of bigger diameter of the rebar in beams, in order to provide sufficient structural support to the building.

Mr Wong, the project manager also stressed that on-site experience is important in order to derive the logical and acceptable quantities during estimation stage and prevent any loss due to underestimation.

The two-hour site visit was indeed an advantage to the students as it equipped them with real life experience!

Belawai Trip

By studying in Kolej Laila Taib, we will not only focus on academic but also focus on non-academic wise among our students. Recently, Architecture Student Association (ASA) organised the 2 days 1 night trip to Belawai on 22-23 February 2019. In return, students got to build and obtain soft skills such as leadership skills, self-confidence, and teamwork skills, as they were given opportunity to organize the trip to Belawai. We strongly believe that both academic and non-academic skills are equally important for a successful and brighter future among our students.
