About Google for Education:

At Google, we’re all about solving problems. Sometimes practically and other times with wild, imaginative - or even unimaginable - solutions. These ideas are born through education, when curiosity meets access to information. So the technology we build and the programs we create are meant to turn curiosity into creation. That’s why we have a vested interest in learning in all forms and a commitment to make it equally possible.



About PETROSAINS Science Festival:

The Petrosains Science Festival is Petrosains’ initiative to provide a unified platform for communities in the fields of science and technology, such as the industry players and science academia, to come together for the common purpose of engaging and inspiring the Malaysian public, especially the younger generation, to the wonders of science and technology. The festival is similar to other such events held in major cities such as Edinburgh, Manchester, New York and Singapore, and is another step taken by Petrosains to play our role as a leading science centre and important supporting component to the country’s educational landscape. Through this Festival, we hope to further contribute to the popularizing of science to the public that combines the engaging and interactive Petrosains approach with the day-to-day relevance that industry and academia partners will bring.
