Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are the core components of STEM and are subjects crucial for our future. The earlier we can introduce STEM to students, the greater the opportunity for the next generation to innovate and ultimately have an impact on the planet.
One student who has made such an impact at Alice Smith is Krishna Ghantala. Krishna who is currently pursuing Natural Science at the University of Cambridge has demonstrated astute understanding, coupled with a desire and curiosity for learning, making him the ideal candidate for the prestigious Science & Design Technology Award. Sponsored by MICCI (Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce & Industry), the award is gifted every year to aspiring young students who show a passion for the sciences.
Nicola Howard, Head of Science and Design Technology, describes Krishna as a student with an outstanding attitude, combining a passion for learning with a consistent desire for deeper learning in every single lesson, leading to an exceptional understanding of science. She further added "His enthusiasm, commitment and exceptional ability were recognised and allowed him to accept a place at the University of Cambridge to read Natural Sciences."
Krishna has a real draw to physics in all its aspects and applications. His passion for the subject stems from a deep love of learning and discovery of the world around him, and he hopes to one day be able to contribute to the advancement of science through an original research in the future.
With an increasingly scientific and technological world, we need to ensure our students are equipped with the skills, knowledge and attitude to prepare them for life in the 21st Century.
