The children are getting more and more exposed to different types of technology everyday, and it is up to the adults of the world to show them the benefits technology can bring through proper use and knowledge. HP Inc. has made strides in promoting and teaching the youth of today with their HP Little Makers Challenge, and today they have announced the winner of this challenge.
The HP Little Makers Challenge reinvents the learning experiences through print for children between the ages of 5 – 12. The challenge engaged 92 schools and 31 arts centers nationwide to promote immersive learning powered by HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3700 Printer through a series of eight challenges covering arts, geography, biology, astronomy and other subjects. In total, HP Inc. received 18,600 submissions which translated to over 90,000 activity hours spent between parents, teachers and children to reinvent learning with print.
The winning school was selected based on the highest number of submissions for all eight challenges. The winners were 7 – 12 years old students and their teachers from SK Saujana Utama from Sungai Buloh who won the HP Little Makers Challenge and MYR 20,000 in HP PC and print innovation. “We’re so happy to have been chosen as the winners for the HP Little Makers Challenge. As soon as the first HP Little Makers Challenge was released, the kids were hooked! The challenges allowed them to be creative with the art projects while also exploring science. The learning formats could also be easily incorporated to their syllabus,” said Cikgu Mawar Mohamad, teacher from SK Saujana Utama.
In alignment to the Malaysian Ministry of Education’s focus on technology-based learning, HP Inc.’s Little Makers challenge was launched for parents, teachers and their children to play and learn together with print-based learning. The challenge was created in line with local findings from the HP’s New Asian Learning Experience Study, which showed that Malaysian parents believe that their children can benefit from immersive learning experiences.
