Developed by 13-15-year-old students across the country watch the six finalist projects vying for the #MyGeekMovement National Grand Champion 2020:

Why Food – Water – Energy nexuses?

The world’s growing population will put pressure on global demand for FOOD, WATER supplies and cleaner ENERGY in the coming decades. As a result, this relationship between FOOD, WATER and ENERGY is appearing on the agendas of governments, NGOs and businesses across the world, challenging policy makers at the highest levels to collaborate and work together across industries and sectors to develop sophisticated and innovative global solutions. Shell Malaysia under its Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) social investment initiative introduces #MyGeekMovement that integrates with the global Shell NXplorers. The students of this programme are exposed to learning content and tools that complement the existing school co-curricular structure. Part of their learnings involves finding solutions to the real-world problems, which are the Food-Water-Energy nexuses.

Project Name: Smart Street Lights
Team Name: Orange Car
Team Members:

Andry Lin Haslan

Mohamad Syari’ifuddin ‘Irfan

Sharon Vianne Lazarus

Project Brief:  The Smart Street Lights system regulates the streetlights automatically. Using infra-red sensors, it may save electricity by activating street lights when it detects vehicles. The current street light system uses light detection and turns on when there is low surrounding light, even in the absence of road users. The project innovation is simple, whenever a vehicle passes a stretch of road, the street light above and in front of it will switch on. As the vehicle moves forward, the lights behind it will switch off hence effectively managing energy consumption.
