RCE Penang @ USM Sharing Expertise on ESD with Kampong Selamat community in Perak

website

SEMANGGOL, PERAK, 21 November 2017 – Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), through the Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) had conducted a community programme on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in Kampong Selamat, Perak.

The programme was held with the community at Kampong Selamat, a village in Semanggol, Perak at the Kampong Selamat Primary School (SK Kampong Selamat) grounds. An ESD workshop was conducted with the aim of inculcating awareness to students that science is actually a part of ESD and is very close to human life, and doing away with the perception that the knowledge in Science is a branch of knowledge that is difficult to understand.

The programme was divided into two sessions. In the morning, a session on Science Exploration was held for the pupils of the school, while the evening session was held for the parents, with activities conducted in a Workshop on Effective Microorganism.

 The pupils actively participated in the Science Exploration session. 50 students from Year 3 to 6 were involved in the activities. The students were divided into 10 groups and each group must complete the task for each activity. Each of the group had facilitators to assist them during the completion of the task. The group which completed all the activities in the shortest time was announced as the winner for the Science Exploration session.

For the evening session, the programme started at around 2.45 p.m. We received good participation from the pupils' parents. Dr Nooraida, a fellow at RCE, explained to the parents the benefit of producing effective microorganism. Effective microorganism can serve as a substitute to the commonly-found chemical products, to be used as cleaning agents to clean toilets, drains, floor and others. The natural items used to produce effective microorganism were fruit husk, brown sugar and water.

 According to the school Senior Assistant of Student Affairs, Mr. Amiruddin bin Ismail, raising awareness and providing knowledge to the community on ESD is essential.  He said that, "The students felt happy joining the programme, which clearly showed that the programme managed to infuse a sense of love for Science.” He was thankful to RCE Penang in choosing the school to organise the programme.

 Apart from that, there was also good feedback from the pupils’ parents. Mdm. Hazwani, one of the participating parents said that, "All the knowledge gained in the programme is beneficial to my life, such as on the fruit husks which can be used as a solution to wash the floor, and which can lead to savings from not buying chemical detergents and other similar products". 

The programme ended at 4.30 p.m. RCE Penang thanked the organizing committee for making the programme a success.
