National Space Program to be revived to increase students’ interest the science increasingly critical moment.
During the program progresses, it managed to spark interest in stu-jar is not only the public but one way to science overall.
warmth of the people celebrate the beginning of science was felt from the moment of initial selection to ternobatnya, Datuk Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor as of the first astronaut in 2007.
This phenomenon is continuous and can be seen through the response by students to national icon every time he makes in front of the emergence of especially when speaking audiences in schools.
The atmosphere is a breath of new and one injection to the students and their parents to learn science. This is because they can see and celebrate the power of science through the National Astronaut.However, this momentum was inhibited by momokan and negative label on the program by certain government initiatives that are often ignored even though it had a positive impact in the long term . As a result, students’ interest to follow the declining trend is now more critical and is expected to affect the desire to Malaysia becoming a developed nation by 2020. To be a developed country, we need energy 500.000 skilled and knowledgeable in science and technology.
However, this target is quite difficult to achieve based on current projections, only about 35,000 students per year studying science at tertiary level or in higher education institutions.
While at secondary school level, students who take science stream did not meet the target ratio of 60 per cent to 40 per cent of science is not science.
For example, enrollment form 4 in science this year even though only 29 percent of eligible is 58 per cent based on examination results of the Lower Secondary Assessment (PMR) them. Therefore, there should be a mega program to create and further increased interest of students and parents to the fields of science and technology, such as reviving the National Astronaut program or start to build a spacecraft for space tourism industry.
space tourism industry expected to grow rapidly in the future, and accordingly we are the same explore its potential.
In addition, large-scale projects is very important to foster interest in addition to showing the power of science to the public as evidenced by the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC). As a result millions of dollars of foreign investment and hundreds of thousands of jobs related to science and technology in place.The impact, he succeeded in creating human capital supply chain to meet market demand and thus attract more students to pursue science at all levels .
