Firstly I’ll like to thank Education In Malaysia for helping to pass the word on some things (including my Levi’s 501 appearance). I shall return the favour by passing the word on some things they – together with TinKosong – have pointed out:
1. Experiences ’06 Kuala Lumpur is an education fair with a difference – it’s run by the students. Malaysian students and alumni from US universities have banded together to present their schools and the American higher education system – including well-known names like Harvard, Yale, and so on.
If you’re curious about the American education system, do check them out at:
- Date: July 16th 2006 (Sunday)
- Time: 10.00 AM – 6.00 PM
- Venue: Sunway Pyramid Convention Center, Kuala Lumpur
2. If you’re interested in environmental issues, take a look at the Cathay Pacific International Wilderness Experience. Chosen participants from South Africa and the Pacific Rim will be sponsored by Cathay Pacific to travel to South Africa from 22nd – 30th August 2006 to participate in cultural and environmental activities – performance, discussions and debates, even mock weddings!
If you are:
- Proficient in English
- Experienced in community activities
About 100 aspiring scientists from premier schools in Southern Peninsular Malaysia (Johor, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan) will get various experience in the sciences – lectures, hands-on experiments, recreational activities, and so on. They will also get to interact with academics, researchers, and many other interesting and intriguing people.
There’s plenty going on education-wise in Malaysia, in the region, and around the world; if you have any other updates or news on relevant and related programs and events, do let me know!
