Sci-ON is a science outreach programme mainly focusing on increasing student’s interest and awareness to science related subjects. It is also a platform where different departments in IIUM can work together collaboratively on science outreach activities under one roof. This will allow the school students to be exposed to various opportunities in science, hoping to ignite their passion in science and increase their desire to do well in their examination enabling them to take science stream in Form 4 or even after school. Each participating department has developed science outreach modules that will be used throughout this programme and also to other schools as well.

As a start, we are very grateful to have SMK Indera Mahkota 2 as our first collaborator, many thanks to the principal, Puan Nor Azizah Abd Hadi in allowing us to conduct the outreach programme. We had conducted food biotechnology outreach programme organized by Department of Biotechnology IIUM to school students of SMK Indera Mahkota 2. Kudos to all academics and also facilitators from IIUM MySTEM Ambassador in making this event a success!
