What Is TEGAS?
Tabung Ekonomi Gagasan Anak Sarawak (TEGAS) was established in 2012 as a Charitable Trust dedicated to promoting Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship amongst Sarawakian youth.
TEGAS is governed by the Board of Trustees, chaired by The Honourable Datu Haji Len Talif Salleh, Assistant Minister of Urban Planning, Land Administration and Environment. Day-to-day management is delegated to a Senior Management Team, headed by Chief Operating Officer, Awangku Merali Pg. Mohamed.
STEM Playground is an interactive family-friendly exhibition to cultivate an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) amongst students. The first STEM Playground was organized in conjunction with Sarawak Career and Training Fair 2017 and has attracted more than 8,000 visitors – school children, youths and parents alike.
DROBOTEX (Drone and Robotics Explore) Challenge is an initiative to help spark interest in STEM through a competition involving robots and drones. The first DROBOTEX Challenge was held in 2018 in conjunction with Pustaka Makers Meet. In 2019, the first Borneo International DROBOTEX Challenge has attracted participants from neighbouring countries such as Brunei, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand
Project of Dreams Realized (Pro-DR) Roadshow is the first of its kind mobile roadshow in Sarawak, where 40 institutions of higher learning, TVET provider and financial aids agencies will travel continuously from district to district. This is TEGAS’s effort to reach out and at the same time ensuring that equal opportunities are given and made known to school leavers outside Kuching, especially those in the rural areas.
Sarawak Career and Training Fair or SCaT Fair is the largest annual fair of its kind in Sarawak. The fair serves as a one-stop centre that seeks to enhance marketability of the younger generation through the provision of opportunities for education, training, employment and financial assistance.
