Venue: Borneo Convention Centre Kuching
UCTS Architecture introduced ‘EU.REKA!’ as the main theme for STEM PLAYGROUND 2018. “Eureka!” is an interjection used to celebrate a discovery or invention while “Reka” is a word in Bahasa Malaysia for create, invent and design. Thus, EU.REKA! enhanced participants’ skills in problem solving, creating and designing while at the same time celebrated their discovery in architecture, art, science and technology.
The main activities were Da Vinci Bridge, Architecture 3D Puzzle, Digital 3D Modelling, and VR Hololens. VR Hololens allowed the participants to experience built environment through virtual reality while Digital 3D Modelling invited participants to explore 3D massing through the use of advanced 3D Modelling Software. Da Vinci Bridge challenged participants to create a self-supporting structure while Architecture 3D Puzzle tested the participants’ problem solving skills in creating an architectural form.
