How to Cultivate Our Youth’s Interest In Science, Technology & Innovation

Are our youths equipped with sufficient digital skills when most businesses are moving towards digitalisation? Together with the recent study by DOSM that shows nearly 70 percent of our SPM graduates not wanting to further their studies in tertiary education, what should we be doing to address this? Dr. Nagulendran a/l Kangayatkarasu, Deputy Secretary General at MOSTI joins us to discuss the factors of this situation and the various initiatives being put forward to encourage the interest in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) among our youths.
