Tong Mei Chen and Laetitia Hildegarda Angkangon from Keningau Vocational College presented their final year project at International Culture, Art and Literature Congress on 2nd April 2022 which was hosted from Nakhchivan, Azerbaijan. Their construction technology project was a 3D replica of wooden formwork used to teach a specific topic in the programme. Their recorded video can be accessed on the following YouTube link:

The purpose of this project was to create a 3D replica of a miniature structure that resembles the usual formwork for an actual building that is under construction. Since vocational colleges were closed for months in 2020 and again in 2021 due to the several waves of COVID 19 infection, it became challenging for construction technology teachers to teach their students on formwork since such topic that was always taught in construction areas where the students learned through practical experience. If the students could not master the concept of formwork, it might hinder them from learning about other related concepts since formwork serves as their basics in learning on how to construct a structure. Thus, this replica was created to help teachers familiarize the students with the concept by demonstrating the process and explaining the aspects of the procedure through this replica. The director of the college, Mr. Johari @ Jaibet Bin Sabin, applauded the students’ project for its practicality and significance.
