THE Malaysian UAV Development Association (MUDA) launched a pioneer co-curriculum club named “MUDA UAV Laboratory” at St John’s Institution in Kuala Lumpur during its recent co-curriculum day.

It was attended by school principal Manmohan Singh Kartar Singh and St John’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) chairman Datuk Azaddin Abdul Aziz.

The club aims to educate the younger generation about drones and its industry applications.

The initiative and idea to set up the club was from MUDA founder Datuk Lester Tay Kean Boon.

This is in collaboration with iFly Drone Tech to turn Malaysia into a world class UAV empowered nation. MUDA aims to establish a MUDA UAV Laboratory (MULa) in every school in Malaysia.

MUDA hopes to emphasise on the holistic ecosystem and research development of UAV in Malaysia by creating awareness through conferences, symposiums, summits and exhibitions.
