| Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – November 4-6, 2016.
Four students from Traill International School recently took part in the three-day Kuala Lumpur Engineering Science Fair (KLESF) Challenge 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, making Traill the only school in Thailand to be invited to exhibit a project at the event’s School STEM Project Exhibition.
Studying the effects of fabric softener on the flammability of fabric and the mosquito trap, Traill’s Health Science project was well received. It also provided an excellent opportunity for the students to challenge themselves and exchange ideas and experience with their Malaysian counterparts.
Held at the largest convention centre at the Mines International Exhibition and Convention Centre (MIECC), KLESF 2016 brought together some 100,000 visitors, including Malaysian and foreign students aged 13 to 18 years old, and about 200 educators from participating ASEAN countries. The annual event is an initiative by the Malaysian government and seeks to enhance the intellectual and creative interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among school students, with potential benefits for the students’ future careers and the ASEAN region.
