SMK Seri Kundang's project for YouthCaN 2013 is Water Recycling.
Since 1998, students at SEED schools have been invited to express their artistic and creative talents in themes of science, nature, and diversity. Every year we receive amazing works of art that tell us how SEED students see the world.
Since SEED booth in World Gas Conference have positive response from public, SEED Malaysia once again was invited to participate in the very first Malaysia Oil & Gas Service Exhibition & Conference (MOGSEC). It was held from 18-20 September last week.
Here are some pictures I managed to take during the exhibition and conference:

We got an early start today (6:45 AM!) because it is a long drive to SMK Seri Kundang from our hotel. Our team is made of former SEED student Simon Lim and myself plus three volunteers: our beloved Doreah (former SEED coordinator), the energetic Lily Ngeau (DCS), and the handsome Abdul Hanan (CSL) who looks like a young Malaysian Johnny Depp.
We were welcomed by the school "Kompang" the traditional Malaysian drummers, young men dressed in colorful clothes. This school has 1,300 students and is built in one large rectangular building 4 stories high with a large courtyard in the middle.
As culture demands it, here I was invited to make a speech in which I mentioned the entire SEED staff and the volunteers who make SEED possible. The students were excited because it is the first time they have seen a white woman, other than on TV!
We just started the water testing in the school lab surrounded by 37 eager students,12 teachers, head of the parents association, and the headmistress (pictured with me at right), going back and forth between English and Bahasa, pairing each students' group with a teacher and one of us.
To our wonderful community of volunteers, teachers, students, and friends:
I am so happy to be present at the school workshop in Malaysia. It makes all our efforts worthwhile!
Youthcan Conference 2012 is just few days away. Students and teacher busy touching up their prototype and looking forward for the video conference event.
5 SEED connected schools from Malaysia and Philippines are dominating Youthcan 2012 with lineup of amazing and creative science presentation as below:
1) "Air Quality & Purification Technology" by SMK Sungai Kertas
2) "Flood Management & Water Treatment Process (FLOMP)" by SMK Taman Keramat
On December 5-9, 2011,the SMK Taman Keramat team participated in the workshop and a national robotic competition organized by the giant multinational company Schlumberger under Schlumberger Excellence in Educational Development (SEED). The program aims to expose teachers and students to the importance of science and technology on the environment and society.

"How can we save more energy from this project?"
