The innovative teacher of the year 1999

 

goh_webOur Teacher Mr. Goh Teng Keang receives the award of being the innovative teacher of the year 1999 from State Education Department, Penang and the consolation prize in Science Education Award from Malaysia Toray Science Foundation

 

In the study of science, one of the topics covered is the magnetic field. The traditional method of demonstration, which is still in practice today, is the decade old iron powder method. The problem with this method is that the iron powder tends to attach itself to the magnets, which requires much effort to remove.

prize

This problem has prompted him to design a method whereby the iron powder does not come into contact with the magnet at all. – The Magnetic Field Plate. With the use of this plate, a perfect magnetic field can be formed each time within seconds. Besides, it also has an added advantage, as the image on the plate can be magnified and projected on a big screen for a large audience.

He hopes that his Magnetic Field Kit will help students to understand the topic better. He hopes also that this award will be an inspiration to all Frees to explore their innovative skills and expand their potential in the field of science.
