As Malaysian businesses and organizations continue to digitally transform, digital skills and STEM education have become the passport to individual and national growth. As such, we have a shared responsibility to learn, unlearn and relearn new digital skills, as we work towards building a Digital Nation that is digital by default, transformational and secure by design.
In line with the tone set by the STEM4ALL campaign launched earlier this year, Microsoft Malaysia Ambassadors Chloe Soh Ke Er (10 years old) and Serena Zara Taufiq (10 years old) met with Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad for a coding session, proving that everyone can learn how to code.
“As Malaysia continues its digital transformation journey, technology plays an important role. Mobility, Cloud Computing, the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence (or AI), and Big Data Analytics are among the most important drivers of digital transformation. With that, STEM needs to be democratized in order to develop Future Ready Malaysian Talent.”
