MIRI: The ‘Riam Xplug 2.0 Team’ of SMK Riam here won the Gold Medal in the Environmental Science category of the International Summit on Innovation and Design Exposition 2020.

The team was also outstanding at the Malaysia Young Scientist Conference & Exhibition (MYSCE) competition.

The international-level competition was organised by the Malaysian Young Scientists Organisation (Myso).

Some 203 teams from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam and Philippines competed in the event. It was divided into four categories – Life Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Sciences and Engineering/Physics.

SMK Riam principal Normah Abdul Latiff commented that the repeated success was the fruit of collaboration between the school and other bodies.

“Especially the Petronas Foundation and Riam Institute of Technology. I hope this good partnership continues so as to assist the students in producing Riam Xplug 3.0 in the near future,” she said.

The team members are Lukelyzsha Mujan, Nanty Lukas Emang (team leader), Adriel Andreson Grey Naxwel, Nur Shazwani Suhardi, Nuraleyana Yussof and Gloria Puyang William.

Senior assistant and teacher-in-charge of the team, Law Sie Siek, was happy that the team had strong perseverance and high commitment.

“Hence contributing to the overwhelming success in the team’s innovation, although this was the first participation at the international level,” he said in praise of the team.

Law fervently hoped that the students’ aspiration to upgrade Riam Xplug 2.0 to Riam Xplug 3.0 could be achieved, to be Malaysia’s first smartplug product in the market.
