PETALING JAYA: Getting good advice can help a team get ahead in the RHB-The Star Mighty Minds National Challenge and Aaron Sim Wei Jun has an adviser in his own home – his brother Ryann Sim Wei Jian.
The boys, both from SMJK Sam Tet, were Perak state champions, with Aaron’s team taking the lower secondary title and 17-year-old Ryann the upper.
They will be making their way with their teams to Kuala Lumpur for the National Finals this Saturday.
Aaron, 15, and Ryann are among the 84 students who have been planning for this weekend since last month.
Finalists will have to create a model or a prototype based on the themes and requirements that had been sent to them prior to the competition date.
“Even though we are on different teams, we are still helping each other by discussing ideas,” said Ryann.
When asked whether they were excited to be going to the finals together, the boys said: “Of course!”
“Having my brother around does give me an advantage because I can ask him questions if I’m unsure of anything,” said Aaron.
