School Lab aims to help students understand and appreciate the exciting challenges of science, develop critical and creative thinking skills, as well as gaining the confidence and skills required to present and demonstrate their understanding of scientific concepts. School Lab makes its debut in Malaysia early this year. 

School Lab Malaysia was targeted at lower secondary school students (Form 1-3) under the purview of the Ministry of Education Malaysia. This competition was a collaboration between British Council Malaysia, Ministry of Education Malaysia and Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT).

Out of 296 teams that registered for this year’s School Lab Malaysia, 162 teams submitted their videos for the competition after viewing the video tutorial prepared by the FameLab 2015 alumni.

The School Lab Top 5 finalists were:

  • Psycho Science from SMK Agama Tun Datu Mustapha (Papar, Sabah)             
  • The Ingenious from Sekolah Tinggi Kluang (Kluang, Johor)
  • St Teresa 1 from SMK St Teresa (Kuching, Sarawak)
  • N7T from SMK SANZAC (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah)                   
  • Speed C from SMK Taman Desa (Kuala Lumpur)

In preparation for the final, the Top 5 Teams attended a Science Communication Workshop led by BBC presenter Dallas Campbell and received mentoring by FameLab 2015 alumni.

The final stage was held on 23 April 2016 at PJ Live Arts, Selangor. Watch the full recording of School Lab Malaysia 2016 by clicking here
