Inspired by the generosity of Dr Low Guat Tin, the aim of the Dr Low Guat Tin challenge is to encourage Girls to engage in the needs of LENS by seeking creative ways to improve their lives. This National Competition is crafted to teach Girls to push the boundaries of their capabilities and learn to empathise with those they are serving.
In 2019, the Dr Low Guat Tin Challenge theme “Code to Serve” showcased the innovative products of more than 900 girls. With the support of the Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA), Zenitant Holdings and Amazon Web Services, all 120 teams spent over 8 months, attending coding workshops and working on new digital design solutions to improve the quality of life of others. Girls were challenged with a completely new way of interacting with the world. The rigour of learning a new design language is a test of discipline and teamwork – quite unlike the usual physical activity associated with Uniformed Groups.
