SPH Kemang Village Students Selected to Represent Indonesia at Asian Science Camp 2017, Perak, Malaysia

After being selected from a highly competitive pool of candidates, Alana and Arlene, two Grade 12 students at SPH Kemang Village, were able to serve as Indonesian delegates for this year’s 11th Asian Science Camp (ASC). This year’s ASC was held in Perak, Malaysia, from August 20-26, 2017. ASC is an annual conference for Asian youths to develop their interest in the fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics).

According to the ASC Committee, “ASC aims to enlighten science-talented youths through discussions and dialogues with top scholars and technologists in the world and to promote the international friendship and cooperation among the best young students of the next generation in Asia.” At this camp, students learned from a series of lectures and dialogue with Nobel Laureates, professors and industry leaders. The range of topics included: cancer therapy, GMO foods, brain plasticity, and the origin of the universe. Arlene’s team also won the 3rd place for poster making competition.

Alana and Arlene share their testimonies below:

“I never realized how much I love to meet people from different cultures. Making friends was easy because, although we had different mother tongues, homes, and cultures, we all had a common, unifying interest in Science.” – Alana

“ASC was such an amazing experience. It was enriching to work with people from so many different backgrounds from all over Asia. I was able to talk to and connect with experts and peers from my field of interest, and the camp helped me develop a stronger passion towards the STEM field.” – Arlene

Next year, Indonesia will host the ASC in Manado. We hope that more SPH students will be selected to represent Indonesia.
