Junior School Enrichment Programme 2022
Pusat GENIUS@Pintar Negara or the Malaysian National Gifted Center, located within the Universiti Kebangsaan Campus, offers Junior School Enrichment Programs (JSEP). At the beginning of its inception, the center only offers the Junior Enrichment Programs (JSEP) for Malaysian gifted and talented students. These programs were developed to meet the learning needs for students and to enrich their learning experiences particularly in STEM.
Our Junior School Enrichment Programs (JSEP) helps students to develop their potential and become critical thinkers who are creative and active in innovative activities. It also provides holistic learning experiences where students can explore academic programs beyond the school curriculum. It offers opportunity for students to network with each other and provides learning activities that will challenge the students’ cognitive capabilities. Students will be provided with psychological support throughout the learning experiences. Our Camp allows students to experience 3-daily fun learning enrichment STEM-based activities.
This year, JSEP programme has extending into two series where Malaysian students can experience the camp during the school holiday, in May and November. Students are allowed to choose only one course offered in each series or both series based on their age group. They will participate in the course activities for 3 days. They will be guided by instructors and teaching assistants throughout the camp. The students will also be assigned teaching assistants who will help them adjust to the camp routines. The camp has very low teacher to student’s ratio (1:5). The low ratio enables teachers and teaching assistants to give more attention to each student. The academic activities will involve lectures, small group discussions, lab work, student’s presentations, visits to labs and research institutes, and listening to talks conducted by experts. The academic activities are scheduled from 8.00 am until 5.00 pm.
Students will stay at the Pusat GENIUS@Pintar campus. Special meals can be prepared (eg. Vegetarian food) for students upon request. For security reason, students are not encouraged to bring their own laptop. However, students are allowed to bring their handset but with limited usage.
