As CWorks software developers and engineers, we often have to think outside of the box. We are hoping that students will similarly take up this creative challenge by participating in 1 Malaysia Paper Plane Fun Contest on 7th March, 2010.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Vocus) March 3, 2010
CWorks Systems Berhad, (Mesdaq: 0079), an international facility management solutions provider, is spearheading 1 Malaysia Paper Plane Fun Contest 2010 – an inaugural event in which university students will compete against one another to determine who has built the most aerodynamic paper airplane. The contest will take place on the 7th March 2010 in Dewan Pusat Sukan, University Putra of Malaysia, Serdang, Selangor and is open to all college and university students in Malaysia. Winners will be determined by the ratio of the distance flown to actual flight time, and will be eligible for several prizes including round-trip airplane tickets to Tian Jin, China.
The purpose of the contest is multifold. First, it is supported by the Ministry of Science Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) and Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and seeks to promote the fun in learning science, math, and technology at higher educational institutions. Secondly, apart from CWorks’ meeting its Corporate Social Responsibility agenda and supporting the year of Malaysia Innovative 2010 recently launched on the 27th January 2010 by YAB Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak, the 1 Malaysia Paper Plane Fun Contest 2010 embodies the spirit of 1 Malaysia, by encouraging the competing student groups to consist of diverse ethnicity – Malay, Chinese & Indian. Finally, the contest brings awareness to green and sustainability by requiring all participants to fashion their paper airplanes out of recycled paper.
“Our contest is deceptively simple yet accomplishes many goals. It promotes the excitement of learning math, science, and technology, as students must use their creativity, ingenuity, and educational background to create a paper airplane that can travel a great distance while using a minimal amount of tape. It promotes Malaysian oneness as students from different ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to work together. Finally, it promotes awareness in sustainability as all airplanes must be made from recycled paper,” stated Abdul Rani Achmed, CEO and founder of Cworks Systems. “As CWorks software developers and engineers, we often have to think outside of the box. We are hoping that students will similarly take up this creative challenge by participating in 1 Malaysia Paper Plane Fun Contest on 7th March, 2010.”
