    EASI-CP (EDUKATE-ASTI SCHOOL INITIATIVE FOR COVID19 PROTECTION)

    We are deeply concerned for our children who may not be able to learn in this time of crisis

    especially those studying in public schools. Hence, as our contribution to the nation in this

    challenging time of the COVID19 epidemic, The Association of Science, Technology and

    Innovation (ASTI) in partnership with Excelsoft Technologies Pvt Ltd and Learning Orchard Sdn

    Bhd would like to do our part by launching a program called EASI-CP (EDUKATE-ASTI

    SCHOOL INITIATIVE FOR COVID19 PROTECTION). This program offers our educational

    technology platform called EDUKATE FOR FREE to all Malaysian students for the next 3 months

    (26th March to 25th June 2020).

    The EDUKATE portal (www.edukate.com.my) offers Math, Science and English lessons to

    Malaysian students in Standard 4, 5 and 6 (UPSR level) studying the Malaysian syllabus. The

    Science and Math lessons are available in dual languages (Bahasa Malaysia and English).

    To access our EASI-CP Program, parents simply need to go to www.edukate.com.my and

    register for their 3 month free access. For further details, kindly drop us an email at

    easicp2020@gmail.com.

    Science Fair for Young Children (SFYC)

    ASTI held a survey among Tamil school Headmasters and Teachers to get their feedback on

    how ASTI can help improve Zone Level Science Fair due to COVID-19 Movement Control

    Oder (MCO) and school closure.

    The survey result shows that a majority of the participants (83.5%) would prefer Zone Level

    Science Fair (ZLSF) 2020 to be held in July 2020 and 472 of participants which is 81% of the

    participants have agreed that National Science Fair for Young Children (NSFYC) 2020 should

    be held 2 weeks after Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR). We are also looking into

    many options for the implementation of Zone Level fairs including online options. We would

    be updating various stakeholders soon.

    Science Fair for Young Children (SFYC)

    Following the Ministry of Education (MOE)’s and Ministry of Health (MOH)’s advice in dealing

    with the current COVID-19 situation, we are concerned on the health and safety of

    everyone. Thus ASTI has decided to postpone the Zone Level Science Fair for Young Children

    to July 2020 and National Level Science Fair for Young Children to October 2020 tentatively.

    We apologise for this inconvenience and thank you for your continuous support and

    understanding, as the safety of our children and teachers is our paramount concern.

    Following the announcement from Prime Minister of Malaysia on the 16th March 2020, in

    dealing with the current Covid-19 situation, we are concerned on the health and safety of

    everyone.

    held on 17 March 2020 to a later date and Extend the YIC 2020 Proposal Submission

    Deadline to 20 April 2020 (tentatively).

    We apologise for this inconvenience and thank you for your continuous supprt, as the

    safety of our children and teachers is our paramount concern.
