Sri Emas wins the ASEAN Business Awards Malaysia 2015 – SME Excellence for Innovation
The SME Excellence Award for Innovation is given to Sri Emas for its unwavering dedication towards creating new benchmarks for how education can evolve and be delivered in the digital context. It is with exemplary stewardship and investment into being ahead of the curve, which will serve Sri Emas’s expansion to regional and international markets. -ASEAN Business Awards Malaysia 2015 Programme Book
And what a night it was! Held at the Grand Ballroom of the Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur, the ASEAN Business Awards Malaysia 2015 acknowledged and celebrated the companies and people who are making a difference in a region of more than 617 million people.
Among such winners like Petronas and AirAsia in their respective tiers, Sri Emas took the crown in the category for SME Excellence for Innovation, specifically so for our work on ChemCaper - Petticles in Peril, the world’s first Chemistry role playing game.
Tr. Anne, who by the way was the only female recipient of the awards, was lauded for her steadfast belief that students should learn the way they want to learn, not the way adults want them to learn. ChemCaper is the latest step in that direction and opens up a new avenue in education, aligned with what gets kids excited.
This prestigious accolade for ChemCaper was a somewhat unexpected honour, even for a game which has created quite a little bit of buzz already, having netted the team an invitation not only to the Google Campus in San Francisco but also to Google I/O 2015 in May!
‘Wow and thank you’ is really all we can say at this moment and while we retreat to the proverbial lab straight away to continue working on the game, check out the photos from the awards night below.
