Our Experiences

Volunteering with GET 2021

Deborah Ooi

Software Engineer

It’s been such a great honour to be a part of this program. I am so thankful for the opportunity to use my knowledge to guide and teach the next generation of female programmers. And to show the “magic” of programming to hopefully inspire girls to consider a future in science and engineering.

Lim Pei Yee

Programmer Analyst

I personally feel the module content are relevant and informative for the students. The use of Classcraft boosted the interactivity with students while keeping them from being bored. Although unable to assist the students in-person, it is still a pleasant experience for both facilitators and students.

Veney Lai

Lead of Supply Chain Data Analysis

GET gives me the opportunity to contribute my knowledge to young students. I am truly passionate about the students' eagerness to learn the trending technologies outside their textbooks. Thank you PSC for the comprehensive content setup and many creative adjustments to overcome obstacles just to make sure every next session is better for the students and facilitators.

Wong Foong Min

R&D Engineer

Being a part of the GET Program was an exceptional opportunity. Mentoring alongside Penang Science Cluster and other fellow mentors felt like surrounded by a family of individuals passionate about making a difference in the local community. I feel grateful to be able to volunteer for a program that exposes young women and minorities to the possibility of a future in STEM. The experience has enriched both myself and the students.

Project Manager

SO MUCH FUN learning with the girls! Without much technical knowledge and experience, I'm glad that I can still participate as a facilitator in GET. It's mind-blowing to see the girls come together to learn and build new knowledge in STEM, despite their busy school schedule, homework, and constraints during this pandemic. They have so much passion for their future and it inspires me too. It's unquestionably a two-way learning experience!

Ilyani Mohd Lena

SSD Product Engineer

A very generous approach to cater the MCO situation and usage of classcraft to keep the students interested. This platform serves as a start for students to generate their interest with the world of science and technology. Involvement of mentors and facilitators from the related industry itself in this project is really helpful as the students can ask and gain fresh feedback from the SME.

Tan Yan Ni

Electrical Engineer

GET is a good program in grooming the female students to embark into the world of science, engineering and technology. My involvement in the program as facilitator is to share my knowledge and facilitate the discussion among the students. I get the chance to learn new knowledge, and practice my skills in facilitating small group discussions. I am really thankful for the opportunity and support from the organizing team and my company. I hope this program will be able to increase female involvement in making a change to the world.

Herney Herman

Field Sales Engineer

GET plays significant roles in encouraging and provide platform to young generation to take part and break the barrier in our social norm. Active participation among the young girls has bring the program outcome closer to its objective. Understand the reason behind lack numbers of women involvement in science and technology even in decision making roles, GET obviously in significant position to address this. GET shall continue to nurture and expose the girls to the real world in order to prepare them when time comes.
