Junior School Enrichment Programme 2022

Introduction​

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.

Our Courses

Astrokids

This course will drive participants to explore and understand the world of astronomy theoretically and practically from an astronomer's point of view. At the end of the module, participants will learn about basic astronomy knowledge. They will also be exposed to scientific skills such as observation, classification, scientific interpretation and prediction.

Be a Scientists

This course provides an early exposure and fundamental knowledge about science. The 3-days module course is well planned, constructed and created to boost students’ interest in science. Students will be introduced about the key attributes of scientist and scientific methods during the first day of class, so that they will be able to follow the learning journey by understanding about one of the natures of the science.

Crime Scene Investigation

We have seen forensic scientists in TV shows, but how do they really work? What is the science behind their work? This CSI course provides an early exposure and fundamental knowledge about forensic science, especially in crime scene investigation. Students will learn how forensic experts use chemistry, biology, and physics to discover the hidden clues left behind at crime scenes and solve difficult cases by experiencing as the real forensic science investigator during the mock crime scene investigation.

Genetic Engineering

This course provides an early exposure and fundamental knowledge about genetic engineering and biotechnology using interactive and hands-on teaching modules. This course will implement MySchoolGEM (Genetic Engineering Module) comprising of three modules DNA, Microbes and GMO modules that integrate project- and ICT-based teaching concepts for stimulating students’ interest and understanding in the basics of genetic engineering and biotechnology

Introduction to DNA Barcoding

This course was designed to provide students to exposed to DNA Barcoding tool, to identify the species of insects. Students were allowed to catch their insect of interest from the school compound as a sample of their research. Students got chance to extract the insect’s DNA, multiply the DNA through polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique and detection of their DNA through gel electrophoresis.

Introduction to Robotics

This course is designed to provide participants with vital information in the field of robotics as well as to improve their competitiveness in related sectors. This training covers both theoretical and practical topics. Participants will be exposed to the many types of robots, robot parts, robotics laws and morals, robotics professions, and challenges and solutions to upcoming concerns in the field of robotics as part of the hypothesis.

Junior Automotive Club

The Junior Automotive Engineering Club (JAC) encourages participants to explore all areas of the curriculum whilst designing, making testing and racing a miniature car powered by compressed air. Using a pre-cut net to form the chassis of the car, participants then use their understanding of the science of speed to design an efficient bodyshell. After testing and modifying their designs, cars are finally raced down a 12m track powered by compressed air, in an exciting race, engaging the whole school.

Mathematic is Fun

This course provides an early exposure and fundamental knowledge about the basic probability concepts, numbers and sequences and skills necessary for students to understand the Basic Laws of Probability, Pi, Fibonacci numbers and golden ratio in order to solve problems of mathematics.

Up & Atom

This course provides an early exposure and fundamental knowledge about atomic science. Students will explore the fundamentals of quantum which consists of atom, molecules, and matter. For each topic, students will be involved in hands-on activity to relate the basic concept of atom and matter.

Young Doctors

This course provides an early exposure and fundamental knowledge about human biology and medical terms. These 3-days learning journey cover few interesting human systems like system of digestive, blood circulatory, and musculoskeletal and with addition of human diseases related to the systems learned.
