Kota Samarahan, 27 May 2015 - Microsoft Malaysia, together with Faculty of Computer Science & IT, UNIMAS as the host, plus Yayasan Inovasi Malaysia, and Here Map have successfully organized the Microsoft Imagine Camp 2015. 
The workshop was conducted at Teaching Lab 1 and General Lab 2 of the faculty of Computer Science & IT, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak recently.
The main objective of the half-day workshop is to provide an exposure, insight and awareness to school children about programming/coding.
The approach is more towards fun activities using free tools such as Here Map and Hour of Code.
Two schools participated in the event. The first school is from SMK Hajjah Laila Taib (formerly known as SMK Asajaya 2) with 40 students from Form 1 and Form 2, plus three teachers.
The second school is from SMK Sg Tapang (Kota Smarahan) with 40 students from Form 4 and Form 5, accompanied by four teachers.
The activities were conducted by Mr. TC Pun (Technology Advisor at Microsoft DX), Puan Siti Rahimah from Here Map, with assistance from Microsoft Student partners from UNIMAS and Taylor’s College.
Overall, the workshop has achieved the objective. Participants enjoyed the sessions exploring the world of programming using freely available online tools.
It is hoped that with such exposure, more students will be inspired and motivated to become producers of software, and consequently pursue a computer science or IT degree programme at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak in the near future.
