SHAH ALAM – Sekolah Tinta gathered its students for the annual exhibition which is its first and biggest yet, after the pandemic wave hits. Over these few months, the students and teachers had been actively analysing the intersection between Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M) subjects and the study of humanity in the past.
Sekolah Tinta, established in 2017 is a private school with national curricular for primary and secondary level education. Setting itself apart from other schools, Sekolah Tinta injects four disciplines of S.T.E.M at its core. The students have been exposed with project-based learning, inquiry-driven approach and real-life applications, reflected in the exhibition.
The exhibition, called S.T.E.M Across Exhibition, is a platform for students of Sekolah Tinta to present their learning outcomes in uncovering the S.T.E.M components that have been used since back in the day. As it is open to the public, all the crowds grabbed the chance to glimpse the hidden S.T.E.M in famous national landmarks and cultural assets of each state in Malaysia.
“It is the first time we combine the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M) subjects into something contrasting, which is history. We love to see the hard work of these students come to life and we are able to see their excitement and blossoming passion towards S.T.E.M,” said Dr. Haliza Idris, the Principal of Sekolah Tinta.
She added, “Through this learning process, the students learn to apply their knowledge and upskill themselves by combining different disciplines, not just one. This skill is critical in preparing them for future workforces towards Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0), as well as surviving the real life challenges when they finish school.”
Launched by Pn. Yuhana Yaacob, the Senior Principal Assistant Director at Private Education Division of Selangor Education Department (JPNS), the school is expected to become an exemplary school to other private schools with national curriculum in the country. In order to expand the students’ knowledge, this kind of exhibition is a need.

Among the states exhibited were Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Johor, Pahang, Kedah, Terengganu, Kelantan, Pulau Pinang, Melaka, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Sabah and Sarawak. Esteemed organisations such as Petrosains, Exploria, Pandai app and Mommy Happy were also present as its official exhibition partners.
