Study aid recipients give back via workshop for children

The children concentrating on popping each other's balloons with the Mars Raver.

Great Vision Charity Association’s Didik Kasih EduCare Programme helps underprivileged university students by giving a one-time aid of RM1,500 and a monthly allowance of RM250 for 12 months.

Two aid recipients – electrical engineering student Yus Amirul and mechanical engineering student Muhammad Ariff – were inspired to give back to society by exposing children to technology, art and programming.

They held a “Tech Art 2.0” workshop which was divided into two sessions.

The first session was titled “My Dream House Using Sketchup” and the second was called “Mars Rover Using Mblock”.

The children enjoyed learning to use software and control robots.

Yus and Muhammad Ariff included interesting activities to engage the children who had plenty of fun during the workshop.

Muhammad Ariff said, “I hope that the children can learn new things and develop thinking skills.

“I am keen to hold more such sessions in the future.”
