Taylor’s American Degree Transfer Program (ADTP) celebrated their ‘Coming Out from Covid Lockdown’ by organizing its first physical activity – STEM Challenge in conjunction with Taylor’s Future Movement which took place at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus with over 100 participants, consisting of students from ADTP, high-school students with their teachers and parents.
The Challenge featured projects by Taylor's ADTP students from Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) modules, including Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Calculus, and Programming.
The event consisted of multiple challenges, where participants form groups to solve problems with hands-on activities and complete various tasks designed and crafted by Taylor’s ADTP students.
There were three main challenges for each team to complete within a specific time. There were 3D Model Construction, Online game at the Chemistry Pit-stop, where participants explored science prototypes, played games, learned/applied science in the Physics pit-stop and lastly, pored through beautiful posters of famous mathematicians and learnt about their contributions while answering a series of trivia questions in the Mathematics & Computer Science station.
The event concluded with the Closing Ceremony led by ADTP’s Engineering & Computer Science Stream Coordinator, Dr. Wong Yau Hsiung and Program Director, Dr. Loh Kah Heng gave away the prizes to all successful participants. It was a successful Saturday morning, and the participants thoroughly enjoyed the activities and challenges, had lots of fun, and looked forward to return for another ADTP event.
