Qreatif Lab Sdn Bhd announces the launch of TRON Boot Camp aims at young minds aged 10-17 to explore the wonders of aerospace. Parents and participants alike will be delighted to know that the boot camp is designed by STEM and Aerospace consultants, especially for young learners who are keen to understand the field of space exploration and its benefit to humankind.
TRON Boot Camp is lined up with simulation experiential learning, rocket technology, maneuvering rovers, drones, and even 3D printing. Following the completion of the program, our young learners now called TRONNERS, will be graduated from the program with certificates at the Andromeda Base in Genting SkyWorlds.
“Nurturing young ‘angkasawan’ talents is one of the main key areas of the National Space Policy 2030. With support from STEM and Aerospace experts, TRON Boot Camp is structured to entice their young minds to further explore this field. As a parent myself, I cannot wait to be able to mentor these young minds during the intensive 3 days program”, said Dato’ Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, Founder of
TRON Boot Camp.
The pilot TRON Boot Camp will be conducted in November this year while the full-fledged program will be made available in the next month. Envisioning a long-term sustainability plan for the program, Qreatif Lab is planning to make this program accessible for public and private institutions alike.
“We are envisioning a Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Space Camp for the young minds in TRON Boot Camp is a crucial stepping stone to understanding our young space dwellers and will further improve the program for years to come. We are also eyeing to offer this to our neighboring countries like Singapore and Indonesia”, said Pn Zarina bt Mohamad, Managing Director and CEO of Qreatif Lab Sdn Bhd.
Meanwhile, Spencer Lee, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Genting Malaysia Berhad said, “As a purveyor of world-class events and adventure creation, we are certainly excited to co-host and be a venue partner for the inaugural TRON Boot Camp graduation ceremony and related aerospace activities high above the clouds at our platinum-rated attraction, Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park. Genting SkyWorlds is not just a place to have fun, but it’s also a place to learn and a perfect venue for team-building”.
The participants will explore enchanting astronomy and space-related elements at the Al-Falak Complex in Melaka. “We are so excited to be able to offer our space as a venue for our future astronauts. The children will be spending the first two days of the program, including the opening ceremony at Al-Falak Complex. It is such an honor to be able to collaborate with QLSB, Dato’ Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar himself, and Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park for TRON Boot Camp”, added Puan Qistina, Manager Kompleks Falak Al-Khawarizmi, Melaka.
