Last weekend was the 8th annual Penang International Science Fair held at the SPICE Arena. The Science Fair is an event by the State Government and Penang Science Cluster, supported by multinationals and leading local companies in Penang. It is part of their mission of “Inspiring Innovation”. There are 60,000 attendees who visited and participated in over 50 different free workshops and activities. Altogether, there are more than 1,400 volunteers helping in this event. There were 12 different competitions with more than 200 teams in the finals.
This year was the first time that POWIIS entered teams, and we had one team reach the final 20 teams in the coding Games section. After two days of presenting their game to the public and judges, the results were announced, with the girls coming in the top 5.
