STEM activities at PSI Kg Melayu provides a platform to work with students to help them learn and be curious about STEM. The program also gives PSI staff the opportunity to learn from UTM how STEM activities are carried out and they will be able to continue this activity in the library in the future. It was found that students who came to the Sultan Ismail library (PSI) Kg Melayu branch to study was very few even though the facilities available at the Library were very good. Students in that area do not seem to see the presence of the library as beneficial. If this problem persists, the PSI branch in Kg Melayu will be shut down. Thus, FP UTM's Learning Club will collaborate with the Johor Bahru Foundation to carry out STEM activities at PSI Kg Melayu branches. It aims to promote libraries and also foster student interest in STEM subjects in schools. Students from around Kg. Malay Majidi was selected to participate in the STEM activities held once a month at PSI Kg Melayu branch. Various activities will be organized throughout the year to ensure the program objective is achieved. The Education School of UTM with the cooperation of the Sultan Ismail Library will create profiling students to explore the effectiveness of STEM PSI Kg Melayu activities on the interests, career options, and achievement of students in Science and Mathematics subjects. The selected students will follow various activities planned by UTM and PSI every month. All activities involve hands on and require students to use their thinking skills. Student achievement before joining the program and after following the program will also be recorded and monitored. Based on the observation, all students were actively involved and showed an interest in STEM activities. This activities is hoped to produce training module and also copyright for the survey and program.
