PETALING JAYA, 30 MAY 2015 – How do you find out what you’re passionate in and where your strength lies? This is something that youths need to delve into as it would steer them in the right direction when deciding on a field to study, and that was exactly what 390 secondary school students did, one fine Saturday at KDU. 

Aiming to help Form 4 and Form 5 students explore their interests, discover their strengths and exposing them into new elements of learning, KDU played its educational role by organising the Best of the Best (BOB) Camp 2015 at the iconic Utropolis,Glenmarie (UG) campus and its trademark Damansara Jaya (DJ) campus simultaneously. 

Held on 30th May, this whole-day event saw close to 400 participants coming from secondary schools all over Klang Valley to participate in workshops, which then culminated in a mini outdoor concert finale later in the evening. 

Everything began quickly after the registration process at 8 a.m, after which students were given a short briefing, before being divided into different groups and heading to different workshops tailored specifically for them. 

There were 15 different workshops altogether across both campuses. These workshops were crafted quirkily as to pique the interests of the students such as Digital Sculpting, where students learned how to sculpt digitally in today’s Game Development and Animation industries to create realistic creatures; Girls Get IT, a special female-only workshop to introduce female students to the digital world and mobile application, which are not only meant for boys (contrary to what many may think) and Act Like A Star, where students get to learn show presentation skills, as well as vocal and physical training, as a peek into the showbiz world. 

There were also other workshops such as I am a Creative Wordsmith, which saw participants being exposed to generating creative copy that are advertisement-worthy, I want to be a TV host!, which groomed them on presentation techniques, how to rehearse on camera and shooting a demo, Through the Lens, a venue for participants to learn more about the various composition and angles of photography, as well as a workshop which simulated the court of law where students could get into the shoes of a lawyer for a day and learn how to defend a defendant charged with crime.

There also workshops which required teamwork from the participants, such as the Hospitality Energisers, which was a series of games that bridge communication skills and industry know-how in hospitality and tourism, and TRUSS Escape, which required participants to think like an engineer and design a bridge that can take most weight. 

Of course, it wasn’t just about the fun and games. There was also a SPM workshop and seminar which were arranged to address key techniques in answering SPM Biology and Additional Maths examination questions.

In essence, the main objective behind these workshops were to enable students to explore their interests and learn something new, gain knowledge and make new friends in the process. The BOB Camp 2015 gave these high school students a glimpse into how university learning is all about by experiencing a certain area of specialisation or programme through the workshops. 

But all that fun didn’t stop there, either. The participants were then treated to a mini outdoor concert at the grand closing ceremony. The dancers from the KDU Performing Arts Society (PARTS) brought the house down with their heart pumping, energetic dance moves, and the entertainment also continued on with talented bands and solo singers. If that wasn’t enough, 988 FM deejays were also there to liven up and inject the adrenaline rush into the closing party.

It was definitely a jam-packed experience for the participants, with the beaming faces and ringing laughter making it a day to remember. Undoubtedly, these participants brought home so much more than some “wefies” and new contact numbers in their phones.
