Our senior member, Dr Lau Bee Theng, who is also an academic member of Swinburne Sarawak Campus, was invited to speak on IEEE STEM Initiatives in Sarawak. Bee Theng shared with the audience how she has collaborated with local communities, industries and universities in the past to reach out to primary and secondary school students and teachers to promote STEM skills acquisition activities and programs.

IEEE Sarawak and Swinburne Sarawak student branch have benefited from various industry and university resources to analyse, design, and develop STEM programs that meet the needs of STEM education in Sarawak, not just in urban but also rural areas. The IEEE EA board has also generously extended its financial and technical support for STEM development in Sarawak. According to Bee Theng, “The efforts continue, and I hope to advance the STEM education and activity in Sarawak and Malaysia.”
