Over 18,600 submissions and 90,000 activity hours spent reinventing learning in Malaysia
HP have announced that SK Saujana Utama have won the HP Little Makers Challenge and with it, RM 20,000 in HP PC and print innovation. The HP Little Makers Challenge is designed to reinvent the learning experiences through print for children between the ages of 5-12.
The challenge engaged 92 schools and 31 arts centers nationwide to promote immersive learning powered by the HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3700 Printer through a series of eight challenges covering arts, geography, biology, astronomy and other subjects. In total, HP received 18,600 submissions which translated to over 90,000 activity hours spent between parents, teachers and children.
In alignment to the Malaysian Ministry of Education’s focus on technology-based learning, HP’s Little Makers Challenge was launched for parents, teachers and their children to play and learn together with print based learning. The whole thing was created in line with local findings from HP’s New Asian Learning Experience Study, which showed that Malaysian parents believe that their children can benefit from immersive learning experiences.
“As a parent and at HP, we understand the importance that Malaysian parents place on their role in facilitating effective learning outcomes. We want to support parents in raising our future leaders by providing the right information, technology and learning experiences to ensure they have the required skill sets for workplaces of the future. ”
Fayza Mohamed Amin, Malaysia Managing Director of HP Inc
The winning school was selected based on the highest number of submissions for all eight challenges. SK Saujana Utama, which is based in Sungai Buloh managed to come out tops and had this to say
“We’re so happy to have been chosen as the winners for the HP Little Makers Challenge. As soon as the first challenge was released, the kids were hooked! The challenges allow them to be creative with the art projects while also exploring science. The learning formats could also be easily incorporated to their syllabus. ”
