Program Kesihatan, Kitar Semula EM Bokashi (DBKU) organized by Pasir Pandak village committee in collaboration with Persatuan Pegawai Akademik UNIMAS (PPAU)

Coastal research in Sarawak, Malaysia, typically, does not target gender. Some projects have added gender-segregated data, but gender studies in fisheries generally remain unfunded. Given the difficulty of obtaining funding, gender scoping studies and needs analyses are rare. As a result, most women working in fisheries remain unidentified and unrecorded. In local culture, men’s presence overpowers that of women. Many women marry young and bear children while still in their teens. There is even a case of a woman becoming a great grandmother at age 60.

Dual Language Program

STEMBucket programme is about ‘learning by doing’ with the concept of ‘learners’ journey’ of experiences within educational settings that is influenced by scientific thinking. The partnership between the university with the local teacher training college (IPG) and the ministry of education, could act as driver for change within educational settings, with an aim to minimise the gap of learning experience among learners. The focus on experience could give teachers a voice on the current traditional teaching and embrace the playful experiential learning of STEM subjects. Teachers' higher order thinking skills (HOTS) may be developed when they receive training in the co-creation and delivery of lesson plans and other content, which is in accordance with the 21st century learning approaches used to educate STEM.
