  • Academics who are researching the intersection of gamification, resilience, and sustainable engineering.
  • Practitioners who are interested in implementing game-based methodologies in their projects.

Key Activities

  • Insightful Talks by Featured Speakers: Engage with thought leaders who’ve successfully merged gamification with sustainable engineering and delve deep into their experiences and insights.
  • Hands-on Workshop on 3D Printing: Understand the power of 3D printing in realizing sustainable designs and prototypes.
  • Workshop on Ethical Use of Generative AI in Language Education: The future of education is being shaped by AI. This workshop will explore the potential and ethical considerations of using generative AI in language education.


Workshop 1: STEMulate Minds: Levelling Up Learning with AI and Gamification

This workshop focusses on how to integrate AI and gamification into STEM and language subjects. It guides participants through the use of AI tools for personalised learning, applying gamification principles to enhance student engagement, and creating interactive activities for both STEM subjects and language learning. With hands-on sessions and collaborative discussions, this workshop equips participants with practical skills and strategies to transform their teaching methods and enrich the student learning experience.

Workshop 2: Essential Guide to 3D Printing

3D printing produces a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model using many successive thin layers of material.  With affordable and easy access to this technology, 3D printing opens new learning experiences and excitement for students and academicians.  In this sharing session, we will share some essential guides to 3D printing from start to finish,  tips and tricks and how it can help in STEM education.  Also, the participants will get the firsthand experience of having their first 3D print.

Keynote Speakers

Application of Generative AI to Design and Visualization
Keynote Speaker 1: Associate Professor Dr Johari Abdullah

Application of Generative AI to Design and Visualization

  • Dr. Johari Abdullah is currently serving as Associate Professor at the Faculty of Computer Science & IT, UNIMAS, Sarawak. He received his PhD (Computing Science) from Newcastle University (UK), his Master of IT from Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia, and Bachelor of Computer Science (Networking) degree from Universiti Putra Malaysia. His interest in ICT is wide and ranging from Deep Learning, Generative AI, Trusted System, Blockchain Technology, Web System Design and development, System Architecture, problem solving using tools such as TRIZ, ICT education for children and youth through Computational Thinking, Scratch and Computer Science Unplugged, and also open-source system and software.
Re-Imagining STEM for Nurturing Creativity & Inventive Thinkers

Re-Imagining STEM for Nurturing Creativity & Inventive Thinkers

  • Declining levels in the take up of STEM-focussed careers  has led to scientific and technical skills gaps. This talk challenges assumptions relating to current approaches in the delivery and evaluation of STEM education. Past experiences of the team in the use of TRIZ as a problem modelling  approach has demonstrated  inventive approaches that allows us to move away from the main-stream use of trial and error approaches and black-box models. A systematic approach that helps learners address psychological inertia, and shifts paradigms beyond a purely curriculum approach to a "higher order thinking model that benefits from and creative  dimension will then be presented.
