ABOUT THE ORGANISER, SASBADI

As the organiser of FIRST ® LEGO ® League in Malaysia, Sasbadi believes that education is more than an academic performance but also a journey of nurturing skills. For a holistic learning experience, it is essential that the young generations of today develop 21st century skills to be prepared for a rapidly changing future. This includes life skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, good communication and working in teams.

With that, Sasbadi Learning Solutions was set-up as early as 2005 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sasbadi Group to promote hands-on learning through educational tools and learning platforms. As such, Sasbadi has been championing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and working closely with key partners such as the Ministry of Education (MOE) Malaysia and LEGO ® Education through robotics. Sasbadi also organizes the annual National Robotics Competition (NRC) and National Robotics Open Competition (NROC).
