How Does Petrosains Empower Teachers To Create Creative & Fun School Curriculum?

Continuing from the project we began in 2016, Program Sentuhan Ilmu PETRONAS (PSIP) is now coming to the 3rd year of implementation. As part of its CSR engagement program under the Education Pillar, PETRONAS EdL has appointed Petrosains Sdn Bhd as the provider of PSIP since 2016 in the states of Kedah and Terengganu. In 2017, PETRONAS added in Melaka and Johor while maintaining the 2 initial states. The PSIP program is planned to benefit pupils and teachers from the selected ‘Sekolah Kurang Murid’ (SKM) schools.

As we hoped to impact the targeted students learning experience, we realized that it can be accomplished through providing (1) the students with inspiring activities and (2) the teachers with ideas for the multitude of teaching approaches that inspire. As for the teachers, give them freedom for creativity and make them inspired and they will thrive in helping the children learn at optimum capability. Although the initial focus of the program was to develop Science-Maths teachers to be STEM-inclined, we had to improvise along the way to include pedagogical development for other non-science/maths teachers. Our improvised modules also were later designed to cater broader classroom practice across many subjects.

Enjoy the selected photos of the event :

 Mr Fakhrin presented a science demonstration to the teachers on combustion; to convince audiences on the three elements required for combustion. Science demonstration is an art  to 21st-century teaching
