Kota Kinabalu: The Industrial Training Institute (ILP) Kota Kinabalu emerged winner at the Sabah Creativity and Innovation Technology Exhibition 2019 (SCINTEX ’19) held at Rafflesia Hall, ILP Kota Kinabalu, Thursday.

Its innovation prevents clothes from getting wet due to rain.

The team comprising four students, Pitin Muin, Roymey @ Ismail Yusof, Bedejovi Yatus @ Vitus and Bryan Vega Jenuh, named their project “Automous Rain Detector (ARD)”, an automatic clothesline that can move to the closed area when it detects rain. 

The team beats 34 others in the institution category.

In second place was Polytechnic Kota Kinabalu, while in third was ILP Sandakan.

Each winner took home cash prizes of RM1,000, RM700 and RM500 as well as certificates and trophy.

Meanwhile, SMK Panglima Abdullah, Semporna was named as winner for the school category with its Smart Car Door Lock (SCDL) innovation. It helps solve the problem often encountered by drivers when the key is left in a locked car. 

SMK Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu was in second place, while Keningau Vocational College came in third.

Each winner brought home cash prizes of RM700, RM500 and RM300 with certificates and trophy.

State Education and Innovation Minister, Datuk Dr Yusof Yacob, who officiated the closing of SCINTEX ’19, said exposing students from elementary school to university level on the Industrial Revolution (IR) 4.0 is important so they can keep up with the latest technological developments.

Changes in the education system are needed so as not to miss out on any development like in other countries.

“The rapid changes in the industry require the community to be the catalyst for the Revolution Industry 4.0, therefore society must change as well.

“If we do not change, our country would not be able to develop like any other countries,” he said.

The SCINTEX ’19 was the fifth joint event by the ILP Kota Kinabalu, State Education and Innovation Ministry and Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO), which aims to provide opportunities to students to showcase their creative innovations.

A total of 49 public institutions and schools across Sabah took part in the event.

Also present were Department of Human Resources Head, Sutekno Ahmad, Belon and ILP Kota Kinabalu Director Sudirman Hammade.
