KIS students win first place at Sabah EduHack Competition

Over the holidays, two of our Y13 students, Naavin Ravinthran and Ahmad Afiq Ariff Danial Mathew, won first place in the Sabah EduHack 2019 competition.  Sabah EduHack 2019 is a 24-hour education hackathon, which serves as a platform for young people in Sabah from the age of 16 to 30 to communicate their idea of 21st century education. It is also aimed at promoting innovation culture in Sabah by encouraging  the competitors to actively apply their knowledge and creativity to solve real-life problems through the hackathon.  

There were seven other teams there, all from UMS. The teams had to choose a problem to solve which was related to education. They were then given 24 hours to design and code a system/application that could help to alleviate the problem.

The problem chosen by our students was to make education more efficient and relevant in the modern world. The students came up with the idea of creating a mobile-friendly web browser application that would allow teachers and students to interact, as they would in a real-life classroom. The site would have a real-time whiteboard so that teachers could illustrate examples, equations and solutions.

Naavin and Afiq did extremely well to win the competition (and a substantial cash prize) against older competitors. Naavin also won the best coder prize.

Many congratulations to  Naavin and Afiq!
